What you'll learn

Course Goals

  • Outline the 10 principles of attachment theory and how they help the therapists stay relevant and on target in every session
  • Identify ways to shape a safe haven alliance with clients that fosters collaboration and full engagement in sessions
  • Use the map provided by EFT to assess client difficulties and to formulate a coherent picture of the negative cycles of emotion regulation and interpersonal engagement that block growth and set up the emotional disorders - anxiety and depression
  • Describe the 3 stages of EFT including how to create a stabilizing secure base in clients before moving on to shape corrective emotional experiences in Stage 2 of EFT
  • Outline the 5 moves of the EFT Tango and how this macro-intervention is used across the stages of EFT and with individuals, couples and families
  • Describe the key change process of how to systematically assemble core emotions and deepen them to expand the sense of self and the ability to engage fully with others
  • Pinpoint the micro interventions that both create safety and set up challenge and exploration for clients
  • Describe the attachment concept of healthy functioning and how to craft potent change events in EFT sessions (events that revise models of self and other)
  • Describe how to move past common blocks in the change process with numbed or agitated clients and resolve injuries to attachment figures – partners or family members
  • Outline how to work with difficult concerns, complex PTSD, chronic depression, escalated couples or chaotic families
