Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)
Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) is an experiential, emotion-based psychotherapy model developed by Diana Fosha, Ph.D. AEDP privileges the power of new experiences of being seen, understood, and undoing aloneness, in the face of overwhelming emotions, in order to heal the deepest injuries and create space for exploration, discovering and harnessing untapped resources, and increased psychological well-being.
We are dedicated to providing a forum for developing and strengthening the AEDP community in Toronto. We provide enriching training and learning opportunities for clinicians, including workshops by AEDP faculty members, salons, and study groups.

Neuroplasticity in Action:
Rewiring Internal Working Models of Attachment
A Live via Video Presentation
WHEN: October 26, 2019 - 12:30pm - 4:00pm
WHERE: Oakham House, Ryerson, 63 Gould Street, Toronto
Early lessons about emotion and connection form instructional blueprints that get stored in memory systems outside of our awareness. Left unchallenged, they persist into adulthood and directly affect the ways we respond to our emotions and how we interact in our intimate relationships. With its focus on the here-and-now relational experience, Accelerated Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) is ideally suited to unlocking and reworking internal working models of attachment. This workshop will focus on both the theory and technique of AEDP making extensive use of videotaped clinical material.
