Accelerated Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) is one of the fastest growing approaches to working with attachment trauma. Its transformational theory, a basis for putting neuroplasticity and attachment theory into clinical action, is similarly receiving increasing recognition.

Until recently, the mental health field focused on pathology and lacked concepts to capture the motivational strivings for health. Drawing on neuroscience and developmental research, AEDP rectifies this bias towards pathology. AEDP asserts that we are wired for healing, self-righting and for resuming impeded growth.

This will be an interactive workshop: a collaborative process will be entrained between the presenters and workshop participants to support the emergence of the positive transformational phenomena that are at the heart of AEDP.

This program is for 30.5CE

Presenters

Jennifer Edlin, MFT is a psychotherapist in private practice in Oakland, California. From the moment she attended her first AEDP Immersion Course, she was taken by AEDP and the permission to be authentic and to use the therapist’s whole self in service of clients’ healing and transformation. Jenn serves as the co-chair and faculty liaison of the AEDP Research committee. She has also helped to spearhead the launch of the Berkeley Initiative for Mindfulness in Law at UC Berkeley Law. Her clinical interests include treating relational trauma, mindfulness in the therapeutic dyad and building self-compassion.

Jenn received her undergraduate degree from Princeton University, a JD/MBA degree from New York University and an MA in Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. She has trained extensively in AEDP, including a year of core training and long term supervision with Dr. SueAnne Piliero as well as supervision with Dr. Eileen Russell and Dr. Fosha.

Jenn brings a natural warmth, ease and authenticity to her work with clients as well as to her supervision, teaching and other work in the AEDP community. She sees supervision as a powerful way to undo the aloneness we feel as therapists and enjoys meeting therapists wherever they are in their AEDP journey.

Dr. Kranz has been a psychologist in private practice in Vancouver Canada since 2000. Her areas of interest in AEDP are making the work with clients and therapists increasingly more relational and experiential. She is continually challenged and intrigued by core and pathogenic emotions and has completed the second draft of a paper about pathogenic affect with the working title of “Rock Logic & Rabbit Holes: The Phenomenology of Pathogenic State of Consciousness & its Impact on the Therapist’s State of Consciousness and Therapist-Client Intersubjectivity.”

After the Immersion course, she began supervision with Dr. Fosha. "At that time, all that interested me was becoming a better clinician, AEDP certification as a therapist and supervisor and becoming faculty were never my ambitions. However, as I deepened into both my knowledge and experience of AEDP and in the AEDP community, I realized that it was through the process of certification as a therapist, as a supervisor, and now with teaching and writing that I was becoming a better therapist."

With AEDP, Dr. Kranz says she "found a therapeutic home and a community of colleagues when I did not even know I was looking for one, or perhaps more aptly wasn’t looking for one because I did not believe such a home existed."

Nationally and internationally, Dr. Kranz supervises and teaches in Immersion Courses, Essentials Skills (ES1), Advanced Skills (ES2), and Core Training. Her most recent paper “Making AEDP supervision relational and experiential: Cultivating receptive affective capacity in supervisee and client” is published in the AEDP Journal Transformance.
