AEDP Institute

Core Training – Vancouver 2019

Core Training provides a rich learning environment for participants who wish to deepen their work in learning the theory and practice of AEDP. Each participant will show video of their client sessions to a small group of inspired and motivated colleagues.

The group will be made up of the helm person and AEDP Faculty member Karen Kranz, Ph.D., R. Psych. who will attend all 5 weekends. Karen will be teaching and showing video two of the 5 weekends. Guest faculty, Yuko Hanakawa, Ph.D., Kari Gleiser, Ph.D., and Ron Frederick, Ph.D., will teach and provide supervision one weekend each respectively.

People interested in participating must have video to show for each weekend. Showing video can feel both vulnerable and challenging. Just as deep and positive transformations occur in the context of safe, supportive and positive therapeutic relationships, we intend to create a supportive and emotionally safe environment where therapist-at-best is in the room. Participants are encouraged to cultivate their receptive affective capacity and their reflective self function so that feedback that highlights strengths as well as growing edges can be integrated.

Engaging in a shared, collaborative supervision experience, participants will have the distinct privilege of multiple pairs of eyes and ears, multiple hearts and minds to help with their work. Through watching the work of others, participants see many different styles of working, different voices and talents, and are encouraged to explore and expand their own way of working.

Each weekend begins with a two-hour didactic presentation by the weekend’s leading faculty member. This is followed by one hour for each group member to show tape of their own work and receive both faculty supervision and supportive feedback from group members.

Meet the Trainers:

Yuko Hanakawa, PhD

yuko-pic-2-copyYuko Hanakawa, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist in New York City. She was "raised" by AEDP from the very beginning of her career. While a doctoral student at Adelphi University, she met Diana Fosha who was a faculty member. Dr. Hanakawa has been captivated by the unfolding process of healing and growth that AEDP powerfully facilitates ever since.

Dr. Hanakawa has been particularly interested in the body-mind connection, memory reconsolidation, and the role of positive emotions in the process of transformation. Her paper, "Receiving Loving Gratitude: How a Therapist's Mindful Embrace of a Patient's Gratitude Facilitates Transformance," was published in the AEDP Transformance Journal, in 2011.  In addition to being trained by Dr. Fosha, she was in small group supervision with Dr. Jenna Osiason, and individual supervision with Dr. SueAnne Piliero.

Dr. Hanakawa feels passionate about cultivating ethnic/racial diversity in the AEDP community and serves as a co-chair of the Diversity Committee. She is also a member of the International Community Development committee, and has been creating AEDP communities among Japanese therapists in NYC and Japan. Along with Dr. Shigeru Iwakabe, she oversaw the Japanese translation of "The Transforming Power of Affect" by Dr. Fosha (2017); she also contributed a chapter to this book which focused on a clinical case conducted in Japanese.

Dr. Hanakawa was a faculty member at St. Luke’s Hospital where she directed the externship program, and taught and supervised staff and trainees. She maintains a private practice on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, offering in-person and on-line therapy and supervision. Additionally, she is certified in Neurofeedback and Hypnotherapy.  Dr. Hanakawa has presented locally and internationally and has supervised experiential groups in the AEDP Immersion and Essential Skills.

 

Karen Kranz, PhD, R. Psych.  

karen-kranz-copyDr. 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.

 

Kari Gleiser, PhD

kgleiser_anw-copyKari Gleiser, PhD, completed her doctoral work at Boston University and her internship through Dartmouth Medical School with a focus on trauma and PTSD. In her practice, she specializes in applying AEDP to the treatment of complex trauma, dissociative disorders and personality disorders. Dr. Gleiser is the co-founder and co-director of the Center for Integrative Health in Hanover, New Hampshire, a trauma center dedicated to multi-modal healing of mind, body and spirit. She has served a term on the board of directors of the New England Society for the Treatment of Trauma and Dissociation (NESTTD), where she chaired a committee on education and outreach. In collaboration with Jerry Lamagna, Dr. Gleiser has developed an “intra-relational” model of therapy, which imports AEDP’s relational and experiential interventions to patients’ internal systems of dissociated self-states. Dr. Gleiser has written several clinical papers and book chapters and has presented on applying AEDP to treat dissociative disorders at various international conferences.

 

Ronald J. Frederick, PhD

Ronald J. Frederick, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist, co-founder of the Center for Courageous Living in Los Angeles, California and author of the award winning book Living Like You Mean It (Jossey-Bass, 2009) and the forthcoming book Loving Like You Mean It (Central Recovery Press, 2019). Since 1994, Dr. Frederick has been training in, practicing, and teaching AEDP, and has received extensive training and supervision from Dr. Fosha. Past experience includes fourteen years as a Clinical Supervisor at Abbott Northwestern Hospital’s Park House Day Treatment Program, a post-doctoral fellowship in Medical Psychology and HIV in the AIDS Center Program at Roosevelt Hospital, NYC, where he later worked as a staff psychologist, and a year-long training rotation in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy at Beth Israel Medical Center, NYC.  Dr. Frederick supervises trainees in AEDP, and has co-facilitated, with Dr. Fosha, AEDP Immersion Courses in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Big Sur, and San Diego. Noted for his warmth, humor, and engaging presentation style, Dr. Frederick is a popular speaker and trainer for both general and professional audiences worldwide. He regularly leads workshops at the Esalen Institute, the Kripalu Center, and the Cape Cod Institute, has provided professional trainings for the Lifespan Learning Institute, Professional Psych Seminars (PPS), and Premier Education Solutions (PESI), and frequently speaks to national, state, and local organizations.  Dr. Frederick now teaches and has a private practice in Los Angeles, California.
