EFFT Clinician Training – Shanghai, China

March 27, 2017 - March 30, 2017

Part of the Emotion-Focused “family” and rooted in a deep belief in the healing power of parents, the essence of EFFT is to afford caregivers a role 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 through: 1) Recovery coaching, 2) Emotion coaching: supporting loved ones to approach, process and manage stress, emotions and emotional pain, 3) Relationship repair, and 4) Identifying, understanding, and transforming “emotion blocks” that lead to therapy-interfering attitudes or behaviors in caregivers.

This final component is critical since throughout the course of treatment, some well-intentioned parents and caregivers can struggle to support their child with treatment goals. 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.

This is an excellent professional development opportunity for medical professionals, psychologists, social workers, nurses, educators and others who interact with individuals, parents and/or families in our community.
