Join us in taking the first step towards training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples
Are you skilled in relationship therapy but seek a fresh approach enabling you to be more successful with couples? If yes, then Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an effective solution.
Pioneered by Dr. Sue Johnson, EFT for couples is a therapy that is rigorously researched, based upon a science of adult love and attachment. EFT gives the therapist a clear guide through the confusing drama of couple conflict and distress. It recognises that relationship discord arises from the threat to adult needs for safety, security, and closeness in intimate relationships. The EFT change process is mapped into a systematic sequence and framework that restructures interactional patterns that bring about relationship conflict. This structure reliably provides couples with a safe and effective path for long term relational healing. EFT is widely used and popular in Canada, the USA, Europe, the UK, Ireland, Israel, Australia & New Zealand.
Ireland’s EFT Community is building beautifully. It has a network of therapists who recognise the value of like-minded support from one another, in the challenging task of couples’ therapy. So why not tap into this network and avail of the EFT Externship Training® which takes place from the 11th—14th July 2019 at the Maldron Hotel, Newlands Cross in Clondalkin, Dublin 22.
This is an invaluable opportunity to avail of this dynamic and effective training.
The EFT Externship training is suitable for professional therapists and counsellors new to couples’ therapy and for those who are experienced in this field.
In this four day externship, starting at 9:30 am and ending at 5:30 pm each day, participants will learn using a combination of lectures, videotapes, live case consultations, and role-play exercises. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify the basic stages and steps of Emotionally Focused Therapy
- See marital distress from an attachment perspective
- Help couples recognise and de-escalate problematic patterns of interaction
- Help couples understand the underlying attachment needs that drive these negative patterns
- Help couples create and restore the emotional bond between them
- Help couples repair attachment injuries, fostering healing within and between the couple
