Emotion-Focused Therapy – 2019 workshops
Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) is an evidence-based experiential psychotherapy in the humanistic tradition of Person-Centered and Gestalt therapy, influenced by family & systemic approaches as well as ongoing research in affective neuroscience. EFT is established as a treatment for depression, trauma, and (in its couples’ format), relationship distress. It has also been applied to the treatment of eating disorders, and most recently, to the treatment of anxiety, specifically social anxiety and generalized anxiety.
The Institute of Emotion-Focused Therapy Ireland is proud to host the following EFT trainings in Dublin in 2019.
