Emotion-Focused Family Therapy Core Clinician Training
June 12 & 13, 2023 • 9 - 4 MT - CE credit hours
The essence of EFFT is to afford caregivers a role in supporting their loved one’s well-being, treatment and/or 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: 1. behavior coaching, 2. emotion coaching and in the use of 3. 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. A similar module will be introduced to identify and transform to clinician blocks.
Dr. Lafrance will introduce EFFT theory and skills, engaging 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. Videos will also be shared for demonstration purposes.
No prior training required. Participation can be active or passive. Participants with various training backgrounds are welcome. This training meets criteria towards certification through the International Institute for EFFT. Videos may be included and therefore this training will not be recorded.
