Accelerated Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)

Accelerated experiential-dynamic psychotherapy (AEDP) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on healing-oriented techniques and aims to achieve a transformation in client behavior by exploring the in-depth processing of difficult emotional and relational experiences.

This innovative method was developed by Dr. Diana Fosha and has roots in and resonances with many disciplines, amongst them attachment theory, affective neuroscience, and body-focused approaches.

Dr. Bridges was among the first psychologists that realized the important contributions of AEDP and sought out training and supervision with Dr. Fosha. Dr. Fosha was also impressed with Dr. Bridges’ ability to use somatic approaches in accessing core affects and has invited him to present to her graduate classes and at AEDP trainings.
