 Robin Huppmann  Robin has always been interested in how people have a great capacity for change. When he first saw one of Diana Fosha's videos, he immediately connected to the relational and transformative aspect of AEDP.  For the last five years, Robin has been assisting in promoting workshops and communicating with AEDP members.   In 2013, he started his private practice at Core Counselling, which services the Fraser Valley. Last year, Robin was asked to develop a program for the Abbotsford School District that assists students with anxiety and depression. The program uses AEDP principals to process painful experiences with students, while directing them towards transformative experiences with both adults and peers. He espouses to create a community of support that engages, parents, educators, and outside agencies in an environment of care that can address a variety of issues such as self-harm, panic attacks, body image issues, and attachment wounds. Almost by accident, he discovered how enjoyable it is to work with teenagers. In part, is it the challenge that adolescents provide for him as they are developing their sense of self during an period of intense transformation in our fast paced and digitalized society.   In his spare time he enjoys time on his farm, surrounded by friends and animals. Though, not necessarily all of them together in one room. He is also in the process of writing a book about his experiences in developing a therapeutic program for teenagers

 Deborah Kors  I am a registered psychologist and have been in private practice in Vancouver since 2002. My initial discovery of AEDP was in February 2012, when I attended a two day workshop presented by Diana Fosha and Ben Lipton. After years of training in many different therapeutic orientations, I felt like I had finally found a "therapeutic home," and I was also struck by the tremendous warmth and support within the AEDP community.  In my work as an AEDP therapist, I have been deeply moved in witnessing the huge risks clients will take on behalf of themselves and in observing the powerful self- and relational transformations that can occur when clients are met with a "true other." I also feel huge gratitude for getting to be a "true other" for clients in this deeply healing process.  Currently, I am a level III AEDP therapist, having completed Immersion, Essential Skills 1, two years of core training, and will complete Essential Skills 2 in New York City in March 2018. Over the last number of years, I have also been pursuing ongoing individual supervision and group supervision.  I feel honoured and excited to be part of the AEDP Cascadia steering committee and to experience the growth of our local AEDP community.
