Workshops and trainings below are geared for clinicians, caregivers and the general public as noted. Time zones also vary according to the host.
Three-Day EFFT Core Clinician Training - 18 CE Credits
The essence of EFFT is to afford caregivers a role in their child’s recovery, regardless of their age, level of motivation or involvement in formal treatment themselves. The clinician’s role is to support parents and caregivers to increase their involvement in three domains including behavior coaching, emotion coaching and in the use of therapeutic apologies, if relevant.
A fourth module involves supporting caregivers to identify, understand, and transform “emotion blocks” that can lead to therapy-interfering attitudes or behaviors in caregivers. The training will introduce clinicians to the theory and skills involved in the approach. Facilitators will engage participants using didactic and experiential learning, including skills and techniques that can be integrated into existing treatment models for those clients & families who do not respond to standard care. The third day of training will allow space for the demonstration and experiential practice of caregiver block chair-work, a powerful psychotherapeutic technique for the transformation of caregiver fear and other emotion blocks.

Caregiver Block Chair-Work - 3-Hour Clinician Training with Dr. Adele Lafrance
This online workshop for clinicians will provide a theoretical and skills-based overview of caregiver block chair-work, likely the most powerful and efficient psychotherapeutic intervention from EFFT to understand, work through and/or transform problematic patterns of parenting / caregiving. Participants will be supported in their learning via lecture, experiential activities and video demonstration (participation is at your comfort level). All participants will also be provided with the latest script for this intervention. No prior training or experience in EFFT is required to attend this training. Videos and live demos may be included and therefore this training will not be recorded.
