Have you tried to make changes to your life with therapy but been unsuccessful? Do you feel that the traditional mode of medication and talk therapy has not provided you with the support you need to start feeling better?
AEDP, or Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, is a successful technique that I use to help my clients heal and recover from what is causing their suffering.
A spotlight has been shown on AEDP recently, through an article in the NY Times written by my friend and colleague, Hilary Jacobs Hendel. This article describes many of the techniques that I use in my practice to help you feel better and start your lifelong recovery. She writes:
I specialize in something called Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP). After being trained as a psychoanalyst, I switched to this approach because it seemed to heal patients who hadn’t gotten relief after years of traditional talk therapy.
Many psychotherapies focus on the content of the stories that people tell about themselves, looking for insights that can be used to fix what’s wrong. By contrast, accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy focuses on fostering awareness of the emotional life of the patient as it unfolds in real time in front of the therapist. The therapist is actively affirming, emotionally engaged and supportive. She encourages the patient to attend not only to his thoughts and emotions but also to the physical experience of those thoughts and emotions.
AEDP for accelerated healing
If you feel that you need support and want to make a change in your life, AEDP can help.
I recently received this email from a former client:
Dr. Ryan: This article reminded me of you well before it even mentioned AEDP. This in particular: “They learn not to feel, and they lose the ability to use their emotions as a compass for living.”
Thanks for helping me learn to identify my feelings and use that information to make choices in my life. So valuable!
I am doing well and hope you are too.
