AEDP Institute

Essential Skills (ES1) NYC 2016 – 2017

AEDP Essential Skills (ES1), aimed at practitioners, is practical. Our aim is to teach, in both left-brained and right-brained ways, skill sets, concrete and specific. Different skill sets will be introduced, explained, illustrated and practiced each weekend, so that participants will emerge with both an understanding and a felt sense of how to practice AEDP. The basic skill sets necessary to practice AEDP will be introduced each weekend, with theoretical foundations and with videotapes and group experiential exercises in the afternoon.

Participants will learn the AEDP clinical roadmap, decision tree, protocol, and the right-brain language of experiential treatment. The training will include didactic material, clinical videotapes of actual sessions, experiential exercises, and small and large group processing.

AEDP Institute Senior Faculty Natasha Prenn, LCSW will helm the course. As course leader, she will teach Module 1 and Module 5,  and co-teach Modules 2, 3, and 4 with other AEDP Institute Faculty members.  Experienced AEDP practitioners will assist with the experiential practices.

Natasha Prenn, LCSW

natashaprenn

Natasha Prenn, LCSW, is a psychotherapist, speaker, educator, author and life coach. As a senior faculty member of the AEDP Institute (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy), she pioneered the AEDP Essential and Advanced Skills Courses, and is well known as a therapists’ therapist across the U.S. and abroad.

Natasha, an engaging presenter, is noted for her ability to translate AEDP theory into user-friendly steps, and for her enthusiastic belief that the mechanisms of the magic of experiential-dynamic work are teachable and therefore learnable skills. Her obsession with languaging interventions and skills training has led to her co-authoring a monograph for APA: Supervision Essentials for Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy. This book, which Natasha wrote with Diana Fosha, is filled with practical skills to wield the power of AEDP’s theory and practice into psychotherapy supervision.

Natasha offers coaching and psychotherapy to individuals and couples, and consults with psychotherapists individually and in small groups by invitation. She is a founding editor of Transformance: The AEDP Journal, a blogger for CSAR, and the author of the forthcoming AEDP Skills Manual. Some of her articles and book chapters are available on the AEDP website.

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.
