In addition to completing the prerequisite training described on our certification page, the following are the minimum requirements for applying to become AEDP Certified. Please note: most clinicians training in AEDP require more than the minimum.
- State licensure or certification in your discipline
- Achievement of Level III AEDP Training (includes Immersion and at least 20 hours supervision)
- After achieving Level III AEDP Training, you must work with a faculty supervisor for a minimum of 10 hours to confirm your readiness for certification and to develop your AEDP Certification submission: Two case reviews, including videotaped material of each case and a micro-analysis of each videotape, annotating the AEDP principles and interventions applied in the clinical psychotherapy sessions.
- Once your individual supervisor determines that you are proficient in AEDP and that your submission is ready for review, he or she will recommend you for AEDP Certification and you will submit your materials for review by the AEDP Certification Committee.
If you are ready to proceed with AEDP Certification, please ask your supervisor for the more detailed and specific guidelines for AEDP Certification.
