Workshops and trainings below are geared for clinicians, caregivers and the general public as noted. Time zones also vary according to the host.
Two-Day EFFT Core Clinician Training - 12 CE Credits
The essence of EFFT is to afford caregivers a role in their loved one’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. Dr. Lafrance will engage participants using didactic and experiential learning, including skills and techniques that can be integrated into existing treatment models.
