Accelerated Experiental Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)
Authentic and caring relationships can be a vehicle for change. AEDP is a relational therapy that focuses on creating a space where clients can feel valued, nurtured, and cared for. The therapist is affirming, attuned, engaged, and genuinely sees clients' strengths. Through this healing relationship, the adaptive defenses that we all wear in daily life are no longer needed and we can safely explore emotions which have previously felt overwhelming or too scary to face. Often, experiencing feelings in the company of a caring other is a new, positive experience. Through processing previously avoided feelings and material, transformation and growth can occur.
