AEDP Institute

Moment by Moment Tracking and Clinical Choice Points in AEDP

a two day AEDP Workshop
at Hotel Mundial, Lisbon, Portugal

with Karen Kranz, Ph.D., R. Psych.

Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), developed by Diana Fosha, PhD., is one of the most innovative and fastest growing treatment models in contemporary psychotherapy. It is an emotion-focused, attachment-based, neurobiology-informed therapy model that fosters the emergence of new and healing experiences. A central ethos of AEDP is a deep faith in clients’ innate capacities, hard- wired and always recoverable, to self-right and heal into their authentic True Self.

In this introductory workshop, Karen Kranz, Ph.D., will introduce the foundational concepts of AEDP, and explore the decision-making process behind effective client interventions. Making extensive use of videotaped material we will utilize moment-to-moment tracking to explore therapist choice points, and their effectiveness, for client interventions.

What you will learn:

  • How to co-create a secure attachment and undo aloneness through the safety of the therapeutic relationship
  • How to recognize and bypass anxiety and defenses
  • How to recognize and harness transformance strivings
  • How to work in the here-and-now to facilitate access to core emotions
  • How to facilitate “core state” experiences, such as calm, ease, clarity, and confidence
  • How therapists can stay in their self-at-best

In this workshop Karen will share video sessions with patients to demonstrate AEDP’s hallmark techniques

All presentations will be in English.

Meet the Presenters

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.”
