Core EFFT Clinician Training (3 day)
The essence of Emotion Focused Family Therapy is to increase the positive role of caregivers 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 specific ways – including recovery coaching, emotion coaching and relationship repair. The model also involves a module for clinicians to support caregivers to identify, understand, and transform “emotion blocks” that lead to therapy-interfering attitudes or behaviors. We aim to increase parental self-empowerment and self-efficacy when it comes to supporting their loved one.
This final component is critical since throughout the course of treatment, some well-intentioned caregivers can struggle to support their loved one’s treatment. They may even engage in behaviors that enable their loved one’s symptoms, creating challenges for the most experienced clinicians.
For this reason, the EFFT model includes a module for clinician and team challenges as well. For more information on EFFT, http://www.mentalhealthfoundations.ca/
This training is suited for newcomers to EFFT as well as those with prior training and experience. The training model will introduce beginners to the approach and give them a working experiential knowledge of the model. Those with previous experience will have the opportunity to deepen their experiential practice, and further expand their skill set.
This is an excellent learning opportunity for medical professionals, psychologists, social workers, nurses, educators and others who interact with individuals, parents and/or families in our community. This training includes experiential components and participants will learn techniques that can be integrated into existing treatment models for those clients & families who do not respond to standard care.
Background/experience in family therapy is not necessary.
