    AEDP Cascadia Salons are held three times at year. You are welcome to attend if you have attended many AEDP trainings, only a few or are brand new. We are confident that you will find something of value in the presentations and will enjoy our warm and vibrant community. 

    The AEDP approach is inspiring and affirming in the way it honours our relationship to our clients in the moment and engages the positive "transformance strivings" that are always available. AEDP is deceptively simple and can be challenging to integrate. The "Salon" is intended to provide a supportive community as we develop our skills. Topics may be as far ranging as responding to defenses, knowing where you are in the process of therapy or sharing the impact of working as an AEDP therapist on ourselves, and especially just being together to share the journey.



    Neuroplasticity in Action:

    Rewiring Internal Working Models of Attachment

    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.


    By attending this workshop, you will be able to: 

    1. Explain the clinical implications of affective neuroscience and attachment studies. 
    2. Understand and demonstrate how the emotional engagement of the therapist can be used to promote a corrective relational experience. 
    3. Demonstrate interventions to melt defenses, reduce and transform anxiety, and facilitate emotional healing. 
    4. Help your clients break free from old patterns and realize a broader range of personal and relational possibilities.

    AEDP heals trauma and helps to undo aloneness by championing the innate healing capacity of neuroplasticity in a safe, attached therapeutic relationship.  

    Through minute-to-minute, in-depth processing of difficult emotional and relational experiences, AEDP clinicians help clients recover their sense of core self and experience increased resilience and a renewed zest for life.


    OUR PURPOSE AND VISION is to provide enriching learning opportunities in the context of deepening affiliations with our colleagues. We want to share our enthusiasm for AEDP, helping it to be more widely known for the healing oriented, powerful, and effective model that it is. With dialogue and support from Diana Fosha founder of the AEDP Institute in New York, AEDP Cascadia was formed to provide the following:

    • A forum for developing and strengthening our AEDP Community
    • A base of support to host AEDP faculty from around the country
    • Ongoing training and development for AEDP practitioners
    • A way to introduce AEDP to other psychotherapists
    • Continuing Education Credits for Psychologists, Social Workers, and Clinical Counsellors
