Sponsored by the Education Working Committee of the CPC Beijing Municipal Committee and organized by Beihang University, AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Therapy) Training was held recently, and it was attended by nearly 70 Psychology teachers and counsellors from over 60 universities in Beijing.
Three experts including Ye Huan, a permanent member of the International Development Committee of AEDP Institute, David Mars, the developer of AEDP For Couples, and Karen Pando-Mars, a senior faculty member of AEDP Institute, were invited as lecturers for this training.
AEDP is a healing-oriented, brain-body experiential psychological counseling. It focuses on how to systematically activate the transmutation energies that are inherent, latent, and involved in the process of emotional change in counseling, with the goal of promoting a new healing experience of state transformation.
Diring the training, the three experts skillfully led the participants to complete the course learning of AEDP Immersion, and guided them to understand the key of AEDP such as core concepts in AEDP and methods of state transformation, as well as its specific skills when applied to college students. Rich learning styles such as video observation, group discussion, role play and personal experience were offered to enable the trained consultants to experience the application of AEDP in a supportive environment directly or from the perspective of visitors.
The five-day training provided a platform for Psychology teachers and counsellors to access to a new idea of psychological counseling, laying the foundation for applying this new model of psychotherapy in mental health education in their universities later.
