Neuroplasticity in Action: Rewiring Internal Working Models of Attachment

SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 2018
9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Early lessons about emotion and connection form instructional blueprints that get stored in memory systems outside of our awareness. Left unchallenged, they persist into adulthood and directly affect the ways we respond to our emotions and how we interact in our intimate relationships.  With its focus on the here-and-now relational experience, Accelerated Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) is ideally suited to unlocking and reworking internal working models of attachment.  This workshop will focus on both the theory and technique of AEDP making extensive use of videotaped clinical material.

By attending this workshop, you will be able to: 

  1. Explain the clinical implications of affective neuroscience and attachment studies.
  2. Understand and demonstrate how the emotional engagement of the therapist can be used to promote a corrective relational experience.
  3. Demonstrate interventions to melt defenses, reduce and transform anxiety, and facilitate emotional healing.
  4. Help your clients break free from old patterns and realize a broader range of personal and relational possibilities.

Mastery Class and Supervision Workshop

SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 2018
9:00AM – 5:00 PM

The work of AEDP requires that we, as clinicians, have a deep understanding of how our own early attachment experiences may play a role in our work with clients.  In this AEDP Master Class with Dr. Ron Frederick, we will explore how we can more reliably identify and make use of our own felt experience to affect growth, healing, and change with our clients.  Through lecture, videotape clinical material, and individual supervision in a group context, you will have the opportunity and space to sensitize yourself to and learn how to make optimal use of your feelings while increasing your capacity for emotional presence and relational work.  We will pay special attention to identifying out attachment related experience, increasing our ability to manage emotional reactions and triggers, navigate and make sense of challenging moments in treatment, and maintain an open, grounded presence.  In addition, we will explore ways in which we can bring our authentic selves more fully into the therapeutic encounter that can enliven, deepen, and accelerate the process.  You will leave this master class with an expanded repertoire of tools to transform both your life and clinical work.

This is an advanced training event for those who have attended the AEDP Immersion or Essential Skills courses. The group is limited to 25 and there will be the opportunity for a few participants (3-4) to show tape of their work and receive feedback from Ron Frederick. Participants should bring video of work with clients in which they are struggling, stuck, or feeling challenged in some way.  Equally welcome is a tape that shows work you are very proud of and want to understand more deeply. A strong emphasis will be placed on creating safety and an open-hearted atmosphere as we all share transformance strivings, of both our clients and ourselves.

Healing Attachment Wounds: Introduction to Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)

FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 2018
7:00PM – 9:00PM

Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) engages clients in the process of healing from the first moment of therapy. AEDP focuses on somatic experience, emotion and the therapy relationship to melt defences, process emotion that is frozen and awaken innate healing energy. Karen will present the four-state model of change and the very unique elements that AEDP brings that accelerate healing. Videotape of a therapy session will demonstrate how Karen applies AEDP with a client to help him move from a distant and defended stance to softening and the release of emotion. You will leave this two-hour workshop with some practical and powerful skills for your work as a therapist. For more information on AEDP see www.aedpinstitute.org.

Meet the Presenter

Karen Kranz, Ph.D., 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 first 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."

Dr. Kranz has and continues to assist with Immersion, Essentials Skills (ES1) and Advanced Skills (ES2) nationally and internationally. Her most recent paper is “Making AEDP supervision relational and experiential: Cultivating receptive affective capacity in supervisee and client.”
