Emotion-focused Family Therapy (EFFT) (November 14 -17, 2017)

The Emotion-focused Therapy Clinic at York University is pleased to announce a 4-day intensive training Institute in Emotion-focused Family Therapy for mental health issues across the lifespan.  Part of the Emotion-Focused Therapy "family" and rooted in a deep and unwavering belief in the healing power of families, the essence of EFFT is to afford caregivers a significant role in their loved one’s mental health and well-being. 

This training is suited for newcomers to EFFT as well as those with prior training and experience.  The foundation and basics will be covered.  The training model is then designed to introduce beginners to the approach and give them a working experiential knowledge of the model.  And for those with previous experience, they will have the opportunity to grow their expertise, increase and deepen their experiential practice, and further expand their skills set.  The training will thus be highly focused on practice change at various levels of experience and will include new as well as expanded and deepened experiential exercises.

Enrollment will be limited to 30 registrants.

This four-day training is geared toward practicing professionals with a basic knowledge of Emotion-Focused Therapy (e.g., EFT Level One). It includes material on the nature of complex trauma and the central role of narrative and emotional processes in the development of disturbance, the EFTT treatment model and how EFTT addresses central features of disturbance. Training also includes numerous videotaped examples illustrating EFTT treatment principles, and supervised peer-skills practice. Practice will focus on the general principles of EFT specifically tailored to the needs of this client group over the phases of EFTT. This includes training in interventions for cultivating and maintaining a safe and empathic therapeutic relationship; for evoking and processing trauma feelings and memories; for reducing fear, avoidance, and shame; for resolving attachment injuries with specific perpetrators through expressions of anger and sadness; and alternatives to chair-work for clients who are unable or unwilling to engage in these evocative procedures.
