AEDP and Cultural Competence in Developmental Trauma Treatment
Keywords:Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Therapy (AEDP), cultural competence, complex PTSD, complex trauma, short-term dynamic psychotherapy, case study, clinical case study
AbstractThis commentary discusses the therapy of a complex trauma survivor combining Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) with culturally competent strategies, particularly the use of a shared second language of origin. This combination potentiated the transformation of early affectively and bodily held memories and facilitated a successful outcome. Implications for short-term models and the training of therapists are discussed.
