Open to all psychotherapists, psychologists and counsellors working with couples, families and individuals, or wishing to be introduced to couples work, EFT-trained and non-trained.
- EFT-newcomers stream – 28th-29th June, with Gulya Diyarova, MSc Tavistock, UKCP, COSRT Accred., MBACP, ICEEFT Cert. EFT therapist and supervisor, Director of EFT International School.
Presentation: "EFT in action - road map to emotional healing: an outline of the theory and practice of Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples".
Do your clients question if their partners are there for them? Do they wonder about their partners’ accessibility?
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) sees emotional closeness, safety and intimacy at the core of a loving and meaningful relationship. When a relationship is in distress, we tend to start a habitual 'dance' where one person criticises and gets angry and the other defends and shuts down. The couple get caught up in this negative dance, and very soon we see the other person as the enemy. EFT helps the partners identify the patterns of blame and distancing, and helps couples to safely connect and become close again. In this excellent introduction to the theory and practice of EFT, participants will get a clear sense of what the EFT model is and its well-researched effectiveness as a therapeutic approach.
Participants of newcomers stream may proceed to the EFT trained stream at preferential rates (see the programme below), and participate either in four day training or in two day, block one or block two (on understanding that some material may be at intermediate to advanced level).
- EFT-Trained Stream – 3rd-6th July
Day one - 3rd July, Leanne Campbell, PhD and David Fairweather, PhD, Certified EFT Trainers, Canada,
Presentation: "Becoming stronger in our broken places. Healing affairs and repairing attachment injuries (AIRM)".
Infidelity, either sexual and/or emotional, or 'digital' (specially in our plugged-in internet world), often dissolves marriages. When and how to work with couples in resolving attachment injuries in both stages one and two of EFT? How to work with shame and grief with respect to AIRM specifically? How to work with partners, both intra-psychically and relationally...? And much more!
Day two - 4th July, Kathryn Rheem, EdD, Certified EFT Trainer, and Jennifer Olden, MFT, USA
Presentation: "The odyssey from reactivity to vulnerability: working with challenging emotions in EFT".
What does it mean “to befriend” reactivity/anger? HOW can we explore reactivity and use it as a gateway to softer places? HOW can we use the Experiencing Scale (Klein, 1969) as a guide to the depth and direction of emotional exploration? Join us for this courageous and rewarding adventure of learning not just the WHY, but especially the HOW of helping your clients make the journey from the stuckness of reactive emotion to vulnerability.
Day three and day four - 5-6th July, Leanne Campbell, PhD and Kathryn Rheem, PhD.
Presentation: "Working with the echoes of trauma in EFT: how sharing emotions soothes the traumatised brain and heart".
The echoes of unresolved trauma and emotional dis-regulation are often loudest and most disruptive in intimate relationships. In this two-day training, Drs. Campbell and Rheem, long-time ICEEFT trainers, will apply EFT to trauma survivor couples. The focus will be on how to heal the relationship by helping trauma survivors reach open-heartedly, and their partners respond vulnerably.
Each training day will include Didactic presentations, experiential exercises, role plays, skills and intervention demonstrations by the trainers, video clips of real couple sessions with live commentaries from trainers and interactive group learning.
'Get to know you and me!' - Thursday the 4th or Friday the 5th July, networking evening of conversation, connection and fun!
