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. Although difficult and trying emotional experiences are often our least favorite parts of life, these stumbling blocks can lead to a keener self of sense and instill confidence and courage in an otherwise unstable foundation. But for many, these events can be experienced as suffocating and even completely debilitating. Such individuals must seek the aid of others to help bear the weight. Psychotherapy is the art of learning how to deal with one's emotions, both good and bad.
