Jenna Osiason, PhD
Jenna Osiason, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist and AEDP Supervisor who was a founding member of AEDP Institute and served as Senior Faculty from 2004 until 2021 when she transitioned to her current role as AEDP Faculty Emerita. She began short-term psychotherapy training at the Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy Institute of Denville, New Jersey, training in Accelerated Emphatic Therapy. She has been working with Dr. Fosha since 1992 analyzing videotaped psychotherapy sessions, focusing on the use of empathy to restructure defenses. This work has lead to the rich development of AEDP techniques to facilitate treatment and enhance access to core affect, strengthen the experience of self-regulation, and deepen self/other bonds. Dr. Osiason has given workshops on AEDP to mental health sites throughout New York City. Her current interest is on the integration of AEDP with neuroscience as it relates to attachment and emotion. She is on the adjunct faculty of NYU Medical Center-Bellevue Hospital, City University of New York, and Rutgers State University of New Jersey. Dr. Osiason supervises in AEDP and is in private practice in New York City.
