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, discover how to:
- Use EFFT to understand a family’s emotional dynamics and attachment issues
- Create new patterns of emotional healing that unblock a family’s natural ability to repair
- Identify protective patterns that keep individuals from opening to vulnerability
- Implement a three-stage process for achieving deeper family connections through creating new alliances, accessing vulnerabilities, and engaging new patterns of positive interaction
