What is Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy Therapy?
Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy relies on revealing negative ways of coping with emotional difficulties and teaching you to deal with these difficulties in a healthier way. Your AEDP therapist will establish a genuine and trusting relationship with you where you feel heard and seen. This type of therapy is experiential, meaning it is grounded in experience. This means that, in AEDP, therapists encourage you to share your experience from your point of view.
AEDP asserts that people already have the fundamental parts necessary for healing. But it might take some exploration and feeling within the moment to learn how to respond and cope appropriately. This process is what you and your therapist will spend most of your time on.
Your therapist will encourage you to become in touch with your innate ability to heal. This approach can include working through conscious or unconscious defenses. The goal is to foster your trust in yourself. Trusting yourself allows you to open up in relationships, which is an essential part of AEDP.
If you want to develop your emotional skills, rely less on defensive tactics, and learn to flourish in relationships (including with yourself), you may benefit from Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy.
