AEDP WEST was founded in the fall of 2007 by a group of psychotherapists who were inspired to develop a West Coast AEDP Community. AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) is a transformation-based model of psychotherapy developed by Diana Fosha, PhD.

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 and Ben Lipton, Senior Faculty of the AEDP Institute in New York, AEDP West 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 Units for MFT’s, LCSW’s and Psychologists
