This seminar is open to all - whether you're a parent, clergy leader, teacher, therapist or work with families, the information learned will be greatly beneficial.
By zeroing in on the underlying attachment needs, Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) offers a powerful step-by-step process for transformational change. Learn how to help family members work through relational distress and past injuries to create new relational patterns for achieving deeper bonds and greater felt security. Whether you work with individuals, couples, or families, this training will show you how to create enactments in the consulting room that will deepen the impact of your work. In this workshop, we will:
  • Identify  negative interaction patterns which lead to maladaptive behaviors within the family system
  • Demonstrate how to use the techniques and theoretical underpinning of EFFT to understand a family's emotional dynamics, access attachment issues, and create new patterns of emotional healing
  • Describe how protection patterns keep individuals from opening themselves to their vulnerability which blocks the families' natural ability to repair
  • Name the three-stage EFFT treatment process for achieving deeper connection, including how to create alliances with different family members, manage change events that access underlying vulnerabilities, and model positive new interaction patterns
  • Organize strategies to help clients optimize their abilities to regulate emotions, problem solve, and communicate effectively with each other
This training has been approved for 6.5 CEU credits through R. Cassidy Seminars.
