Course Details:

Dynamic Enriched Experiential Psychotherapy (DEEP) is a therapy model that sits on a foundation of depth psychology, builds on a structure of AEDP, and is enriched by including the latest updates in interpersonal neurobiology; applications of attachment theory, enactment theory, and the polyvagal theory; and existential, humanistic, and body-based approaches to emotion. This intensive private training course translates all this theory of attachment-based experiential therapy into practice in a way that will help you to enjoy your work as a therapist!

DEEP is not a set of techniques or tools. Instead it is a foundational way of being present as a therapist that undergirds any techniques and tools you learn in other trainings. The course teaches concrete skills that help you to know “how to be” and “what to do” in the practice of this 21st-century, emotionally engaged therapy.
