Raduca Kaplan received her B.A. in Comparative religion and premed studies from Columbia University and a Masters in Psychology from Antioch Universtiy. She works currently in private practice in Encino, Ca.
As a practitioner of Transcendental Meditation for 40 years, Raduca is particularly focused in her practice on the mind-body integration as well as how one functions from that level of wholeness in their relationship with the other. She uses her certification in trauma to explore the developmental aspect of early injury and how it impacts an individual's ability to relate to self and their environment. Her work with children and families, directed Raduca's interest to prevention, education and parental support with focus on strengthening the parental dyad and to recalibrate family's systemic dynamics.
Based on her 11 years business and entrepreneurial expertise from heading her family's animation studio in Europe that she started with her husband of 25 years, Raduca reoriented her passion towards founding an non-profit organization, Afterschool Village, which is a family-centered space whose scope is to help parents parent emotionally, mentally and physically integrated human beings. Raduca feels her greatest accomplishment though is her parenting of her two children and she feels grateful of the lessons she received in return that have a lasting effect on the work she does with her clients.
