Steven Shapiro is a clinical psychologist who maintains a full-time private practice in suburban Philadelphia and has over twenty-five years of clinical and teaching experience. He has been practicing various forms of Experiential Dynamic Therapy (EDT), since the mid-1990’s. These approaches include Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic psychotherapy (AEDP). He is a Senior Faculty and founding member of the AEDP Institute in New York City.
Dr. Shapiro conducts lectures, workshops and ongoing training internationally. His presentations are often commended for translating complex clinical theory into clear, precise, and practical techniques which are easily understandable and readily applied immediately in clinical settings by therapists of all orientations.
For 16 years, Dr. Shapiro was the Director of Psychology and Education at Montgomery County Emergency Service (MCES), an emergency psychiatric hospital, where he worked with a range of severe disorders and those committed involuntarily to treatment. This intensive experience has helped inform his approach to transforming resistance with challenging patients who have a history of trauma, a high degree of resistance, or excessive anxiety and dysregulation.
