Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) is an attachment-based approach combining systemic and experiential interventions, which is foundational in helping parents and children who are struggling with remaining securely attached.
This 2-day workshop will focus on the emotional experience within a family and the problem patterns that block family members from accessing the resources they would otherwise share.
A primary goal of EFFT is to reduce problematic behaviour by creating new patterns of emotional accessibility and responsiveness, which promotes healing and fosters a family’s resilience to the everyday and unexpected challenges of life.
The workshop will combine didactic instruction, experiential exercises, and case examples to demonstrate the practice of EFFT to process parental blocks to emotional accessibility and responsiveness while keeping children safe.
Participants are encouraged to bring examples from their casework to explore the application of EFFT to their own work. When possible, live demonstration sessions are included.
