Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) for Couples
AEDP relies on the healing power inherent in supportive, caring relationships to metabolize painful feelings, losses and traumas by safely exploring and experiencing emotions at a bodily level in transformative ways. It works towards a deeper understanding of the self, and how parts of the self become challenged, as well as nourished, while in relationships.
According to AEDP, people are wired for growth and positive change, which can happen more readily when they can not only understand and describe their problems and strengths (left brain), but also can deeply experience the painful and positive aspects of their lives and relationships in new ways (right brain). In short, AEDP is like having a guide working with you and your partner in the present moment to help you feel and deal with uncomfortable or painful feelings, moving you and your partner towards feelings you hoped you could have together, to feel like yourselves within the partnership again.
