In Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) Supervision, Dr. Diana Fosha demonstrates how the supervisory model for this healing-oriented transformational approach incorporates many of the key principles used in the therapy itself.

Aspects of AEDP supervision include creating safety for the therapist and supervisee, undoing the therapist and supervisee's aloneness, fostering a therapeutic alliance that helps both therapist and supervisee become skilled in detecting transformation, and using an affirmative orientation.

In this program, Dr. Fosha and her supervisee engage in a supervisory session, and host Dr. Hanna Levenson interviews them about their work together, discussing the supervision model with illustrative clips from the demonstration session.

AEDP has a psychotherapy model of supervision – the supervision practice has grown out of clinical practice and theory and practice of AEDP. What holds true for AEDP therapy holds true for the model of supervision: Many of the key concepts in AEDP Supervision are the same as those of AEDP itself.

The Centrality of Videotape to the AEDP Supervisory Process

Before going into the specifics, it is also important to state upfront that just as AEDP therapy is conducted and each session is videotaped, AEDP supervision is conducted from videotapes of the supervisee's therapy sessions. The supervision is conducted from a micro-analysis of the videotape, thus this being a deliberate practice.

In this way, therapists/supervisees get to learn the phenomenology of the transformational process by empirical evidence. The data of supervision sessions do not come from the memory and imagination of therapist/supervisees and their own construction of what happened, but rather from the evidence of the session itself, captured on videotape, which is used for the supervision session. That's how AEDP therapists self-monitor and how they teach and supervise AEDP.

As a result, AEDP supervisees become "super-shrinks" — excellence is built from having on organic baseline from which to proceed, and on which additional specific skills are built. AEDP work is guided, moment-to-moment, by a four state transformation model of the phenomenology of the transformational process. The therapist uses this model as a guide or as a map, to figure out where she or he is in moment-to-moment, and where he or she wants to go.

AEDP interventions are rooted in the 4 state transformational model.

The following are some features of AEDP supervision:

-become a skilled transformance  a strong alliance

Key AEDP representational schemas — The Triangle of Experience and The Four States and Three State transformations of the Transformational Process — are schemas that guide moment-to-moment tracking, both in AEDP therapy sessions and in AEDP supervision. Questions that guide this exploration are "Where do you think the client is right now?" and "Where do you think you are right now?"the teaching of

uniqueness of supervisory dyad, matching uniqueness of each therapeutic dyad: the cocreation of transformation: whereas the Three State transformations of the Transformational Process capture the regularities and phenomenological features of the transformational process, AEDP believes that each dyad coconstructs its interactions and thus the manifestations of transformance and transformational process are unique in each therapeutic dyad. The same is true of the supervisory dyad: each dyad is unique is con-constructs its own transformational path.The supervisor as True Other to the therapist/client dyad: AEDP believes in the emergent cocreated uniqueness of each dyad. The supervisor as True Other to the therapist/client dyad does not wish to disrupt the unique attunement client and therapist have coconstructed, but rather to attune to that, and affirm all positive affects reflected in that coconstructed interpersonal therapeutic interaction and use that to help therapist/supervisee stretch if need. The supervisor does not introduce ways of working that are not organic to the client/therapist dyad being supervised.meta-processing success or breakthrough moments that happen in therapyuse of the self-of-the-supervisor to model alternate reactions/approaches/lines of inquirywork with supervisor around therapist's edges in working with the self-of-the-therapistuse of experiential self-disclosure from supervisor (sharing pride, being moved, touched, etc.) in witnessing therapist/supervisee's clinical workwhen at a crossroads, focus and privilege the positivechallenge the therapist/supervisee to use both left and right brain approaches in therapyhelp therapist/supervisee develop greater receptive capacity and affect tolerance, especially for the positive effects that characterize transformational experience.
Standards of excellence and precision: For certification in AEDP, specific criteria have to be met, specific objectives that are to be reflected in the videotaped sessions that are to be submitted for certification.
