Why is this event “coming soon”? Why isn’t the start date set? Well, we don’t yet know how long editing these videos will take! Regardless, we know we will be offering this recorded option and we thought it was important to let you know about this option, too, and allow you to register. We will provide updates to registered attendees regarding video access start date once we know more (likely in mid-to-late May).
Registrations close on Sept. 16, 2024. Access to the recordings is limited and ends on Sept. 30, 2024.

Advance your practice and improve your client outcomes by taking your EFFT skills to the next level! In this two-part course, you will learn from expert trainers as they show and talk about their therapy sessions – where they get stuck, how they get unstuck, and how the attachment map and EFT Tango provide a beacon for the family therapist.

Next, you will join with your colleagues as they show their work, and watch as expert trainers help guide the therapy process through feedback, consultation, and role plays specifically aimed at framing clients’ problems through the lens of attachment, mapping the process, maintaining momentum, unblocking barriers to caregiving, and more!

You’ll Discover
  • How to create safety and structure in the EFFT process through conceptualization and organizing ongoing treatment.
  • Ways of creating and maintaining a robust therapeutic alliance.
  • Methods for tracking and identifying key inner and family patterns that block caregiving, connection, and progress in therapy.
  • How the EFFT therapist uses key interventions to first validate and then dissolve relational blocks.
  • How to focus therapist presence to promote parental and child engagement in the EFFT process.
  • A proven set of interventions that you can rely on to shift family behaviours towards greater emotional balance in support of parental responsiveness and child vulnerability.
  • Greater mastery of core EFFT interventions and how to use EFT skills to overcome in session challenges and gain therapists’ confidence in guiding families to greater resilience.
  • A more nuanced understanding of the EFT Tango through stages of change in EFFT.
  • Key methods and interventions that will lead your clients into secure attachment, resourcing families towards ongoing growth and meeting challenges over the life span.
  • Increasing the greater confidence and competence of the therapist to lead the EFFT process of change.
