Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy
In Solidarity. Black Lives Matter.
As a faculty, as an Institute and as individuals, we are committed to do our own work
We recognize the importance of ongoing work with anti-racism training, practices and processes. The AEDP Institute faculty and admin recently participated in “Groundwater” antiracism training with the Racial Equity Institute (REI). We plan to continue training in antiracism and engage with various organizations, leaders and teachers in the years ahead.
We are committed to develop new programs and policies to increase sense of safety, voice and leadership for self-identified Black community members in all aspects of AEDP Institute sponsored courses, training and supervision, with a more inviting fee structure to be developed with community input. We want our trainings to be as safe as possible, as well as welcoming and affordable so that Black therapists want to come to us for training and want to make AEDP their psychotherapy home.
Making the implicit explicit, in acknowledgment of the immeasurable toll of systemic racism, we are changing our policy, practice and language with respect to course fees for Black mental health professionals: as of July 1, 2020, we invite Black professionals to participate in AEDP sponsored online seminars and courses on a ‘pay-what-you-wish’ basis; no application required.
We are currently offering Increased accessibility for Black community members to AEDP supervision to facilitate the path to certification and leadership.
a) The AEDP Institute will sponsor a BIPOC majority pay-what-you-wish, faculty-led Online Core Training
b) We are working hard to increase the number of BIPOC Experiential Assistants in AEDP trainings.
c) We have partnered with mental health organizations committed to anti-racism work and organizations primarily composed of BIPOC clinicians and trainers.
We invite you to join us!

The Time is Now- A Call for Change
We recognize that systemic racism has created many social barriers for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC). One of these includes professional education for the treatment of trauma. In response to this ongoing crisis, EMDR trainers and training programs are creating scholarships for clinicians who wish to be trained in EMDR and who will use their clinical skills to dismantle systemic racism. We are dedicated to supporting this cultural change by providing those clinicians with the healing power of EMDR.

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute
SPI acknowledges the complex and institutional barriers that have historically impeded BIPOC therapists from joining and contributing to SPI and larger trauma-informed educational spaces.
To expand access to our highly acclaimed mind-body talk therapy approach, we offer BIPOC Scholarships to address a financial barrier that BIPOC may face when seeking to study SP.
This is not the only barrier we seek to remove.
As an organization, we are prioritizing growing our collective community in a way that is centered in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-racism. Our Trainers, our Colleagues, and our Advisors are self-identified BIPOC members. It is SPI’s aim to ensure we cultivate and sustain an environment where BIPOC can feel supported, seen and heard – and carry that forward in serving BIPOC client populations.
