Core Training – Jeanne Newhouse – New York 2019

Please read about AEDP Core Training, including our prerequisites, here

This is a note from AEDP Faculty member Jeanne Newhouse, NCPsyA describing Core Training in general as well as her special approach to Core Training:

I am happy to announce that in March of 2019, I will start a new small (6-person) Core Training to be held at my office on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I have found after doing this for a number of years that an intimate 6-person group is a wonderful way to learn. As a small group, we can more easily establish a sense of safety and collaboration. Being in someone’s office with them, meeting their patients, hearing, seeing, sensing their care, kindness, intelligence and skill is a learning experience like no other.

Core Training’s goal of watching clinical session video together is to sharpen our skills and strengthen our muscles as clinicians. As moment-to-moment tracking is our guiding light in AEDP, this will be our focus. Weekend 1, we will begin supervision watching each new patient with no sound at all for about 2 minutes; listening intently with our eyes and our bodies. I have found this to be an invaluable tool in training myself to track and to notice. It allows me to deeply focus on my patient. We will then take time to share what we have felt and observed. A bonus for the presenting therapist comes in here as the emphasis is on not the therapist’s performance, but what is happening that is observable with the patient. This is a great warm-up and it is always interesting to see who we imagine the patients to be based just on this kind of observation.

Each weekend will have a theme with some didactic learning and video presentation by me prior to the individual supervision work. I use music and poetry liberally as a way of helping us broaden our own emotional repertoires, which in turn helps us become better at our work.

Working with a group of 6 allows me to share a write-up of the supervision after each weekend with each member of the group. This helps the participant’s work to stay with me and stay with them; each participant leaves the weekend knowing all that they have accomplished as well as what their growing AEDP edge is.

My own experience as a participant and leader in Core Training is that after I have shared my work in this way I have a posse of colleagues. They (perhaps you!) are with me during my sessions. That collective energy and wisdom has allowed me to feel less alone and more grounded in my work. I am honored and excited to begin this process again with a new group.

I ask potential participants to complete an application (downloadable, below). Send it to me as soon as you can so I can review and get back to you to arrange for phone conversation. Core Training is just one of many way to continue your training in AEDP and the application and phone call will help us determine whether or not this is a right next step for you. Once you are accepted, the Institute will arrange for registration and payment.

Training Location


Meet the Trainer:

Jeanne Newhouse, NCPsyA

Jeanne NewhouseJeanne Newhouse, NCPsyA, is a licensed psychoanalyst who has been in private practice in New York City since 1988. Ms. Newhouse, a former actress and singer/dancer, began the practice of helping and healing from a body-based model. She is a trained and certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, and also has studied the Feldenkrais technique and dance therapy. She created a movement therapy program for the Smithers Institute, a residential treatment facility for substance abuse in New York City where she worked for six years. During that time she pursued a master's degree in Motor Learning at Teachers College in New York City. As she worked with more and more people with chronic pain, she began to recognize that healing the heart and soul was an integral part of healing the physical body. Hoping to put two modalities together, she began a four-year training program at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy from which she graduated from in 1988. She practiced relational psychotherapy with adults until 2005 when she was introduced to the work of Dr. Fosha. Instantly and unreservedly drawn to the work which seemed to do exactly what she had dreamed of many years earlier, Ms. Newhouse took the Immersion course with Dr. Fosha in 2006 and then went on to do 3-plus years of Core Training with Dr. Eileen Russell and 3 years of supervision with Natasha Prenn. She has been an Assistant in the first two NYC Essential Skills courses. Ms. Newhouse has a continuing interest in the physicality of emotion and interpersonal neurobiology and continues to explore breathing and meditation and its impact on her work. Ms. Newhouse has a clinical practice in New York City and is also available for individual supervision.
