An Introduction to Emotionally Focused Therapy with Families
George Faller & James Furrow
Parts 1 & 2
By zeroing in on underlying attachment needs, Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) offers a powerful process for transformational change. This workshop will show you how to help family members work through distress and past injuries to create new relational patterns, bond with each other, and experience a fuller sense of security. Whether you work with individuals, couples, or families, you’ll discover how to:
- Use EEFT to understand a family’s emotional dynamics and access attachment issues
- Create new patterns of emotional healing that unblock a family’s natural ability to repair
- Identify protection patterns that keep individuals from opening to vulnerability
- Implement a three-stage process for achieving deeper family connections by creating alliances with different family members, managing change that accesses vulnerabilities, and modeling positive new interaction patterns
