I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is a Level 2 AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) clinician and am also trained in a therapeutic approach called EMDR- Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing.
AEDP- Accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy is a mind-body psychotherapy that is informed by research in the areas of attachment theory, emotion theory, and neuroscience of change.
"In accelerated experiential-dynamic psychotherapy, the ultimate goal is to help clients develop the valuable skills they need to address and deal with their often painful emotional traumas, rather than resort to defensive tactics. By instilling in them the necessary tools to confront the issues as they present themselves, they will be able to function productively with a greater sense of courage. Clients who participate in AEDP often find that they had possessed the necessary coping skills all along, but were unable to access them due to emotional road blocks." As shared on goodtherapy.org
EMDR is a type of psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR helps resolve symptoms by reprocessing traumatic and disturbing events, memories, thoughts and feelings so that they no longer affect your well being. It is an accelerated approach to alleviating barriers to ones overall well-being. In fact, repeated studies show that by using EMDR people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference in a much shorter amount of time.
