Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) engages clients in the process of healing from the first
moment of therapy. AEDP focuses on somatic experience, emotion and the therapy relationship to melt defenses, process
emotion that is frozen and awaken innate healing energy. Dale will present the four-state model of change and the
very unique elements that AEDP brings that accelerate healing. Videotape of a therapy session will demonstrate how
Dale applies AEDP with a client to help him move from a distant and defended stance to softening and the release of
emotion. You will leave this two-hour workshop with some practical and powerful skills for your work as a therapist.
