Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) has demystified the complex web that couples therapists commonly get
entangled in and offers a map to navigate the therapeutic process. The impact of trauma on a relationship, however, often intensely complicates the process and can leave even experienced EFT therapists feeling overwhelmed, helpless, lost, and/or burned out.
EFT effectively addresses the core factors at play in both the heart of traumatic distress and in the process of healing. This two-day advanced workshop will teach participants very specific ways to tailor the EFT model to effectively work with traumatized couples.
In addition, because Self of the Therapist impasses frequently occur when working with trauma, participants will have the opportunity to identify, explore, and overcome their own personal blocks and challenges that arise when working with these complex couples within a safe and supportive environment.
Video review of therapy sessions, didactic presentation, small group work and role-play sessions to practice skills will be included.
