Description

Accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy (AEDP) is both a theory of transformational process and a model of psychotherapy with three fundamental elements

  • attachment
  • emotion processing
  • transformation

Emphasizing the regulation and processing of relatedness and emotion, AEDP integrates psychodynamic and relational elements within an affect-centered experiential framework. This approach is effective with male clients because it avoids pathologizing problems, and instead affirms strengths and reflects positive qualities to offset commonly negative expectations of treatment.

In this phase-oriented treatment, Dr. Diana Fosha first focuses on building the relationship and establishing safety, simultaneously working with anxiety and attending to interferences with core emotion. She then helps the client to gain visceral access to experience, using moment-to-moment tracking of fluctuations in affect. Next, Dr. Fosha affirms and processes the experience of transformation by drawing attention to its positive and healing effects. Finally, the client is able to construct a coherent, cohesive narrative, with newfound personal truth and strengthened sense of self.
