AEDP Institute

Deborah L. Korn, PsyD

Deborah L KornDeborah L. Korn, PsyD, maintains a private practice and serves as a faculty member at the Trauma Center at Justice Resource Institute in Boston. She has been on the faculty of the EMDR Institute for the past 16 years and is the former Clinical Director of the Women’s Trauma Programs at Charter Brookside and Charles River Hospitals. Dr. Korn has authored or co-authored several prominent articles focused on EMDR treatment, including a recently published, comprehensive review of EMDR applications with Complex PTSD. She is an EMDRIA-approved consultant in EMDR and a past board member of the New England Society for the Treatment of Trauma and Dissociation. She is also on the Editorial Board of the Journal of EMDR Practice and Research. She presents and consults internationally on the treatment of adult survivors of childhood abuse and neglect and various other trauma-related topics. She has been a regular presenter at the EMDR International Association Conference and was invited to present EMDRIA’s first “Masters Series” class. As a clinician and consultant, Dr. Korn integrates and draws from many different clinical models (AEDP, EMDR, hypnosis, sensorimotor psychotherapy, dialectical behavior therapy, internal family systems, cognitive-behavioral therapy, ego state models, and various trauma/dissociation models). In treating and consulting on complex, chronically traumatized cases, she believes that it is important to carry a large toolbox and to remain flexible and integrative in terms of case conceptualization and treatment planning. Dr. Korn has been enthusiastic about AEDP for years and feels that it has helped her to accelerate and deepen her emotional processing work with clients. She continues to pursue advanced training in AEDP and remains intensely curious about AEDP as a unified theory of affective change processes.
