Emotionally Focused Therapy: An Evidence-Based Integrative Approach to Relationship Distress
The speaker for this event is James McCracken, MSW, LCSW, PLLC
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), an evidence-based practice that integrates humanistic-experiential and systemic interventions guided by attachment theory, is an approach relevant to all psychotherapists even if they don’t practice couple or family format therapies. It provides a lens and strategies to focus on unclear or unstated attachment-related issues that commonly underlie conflicts in relationships. In this workshop, participants will learn about the basis of EFT and its use to shift attention from the content of conflicts that cause difficulty to the emotions and associated needs that lie beneath these conflicts. Participants will receive an introduction to EFT and its application with couples, families and individuals. Information about further training and consultation will be provided.
