Emotion Focused Skills Training (EFST) for Parents Presented by Dr. Joanne Dolhanty

November 20, 2023 - November 22, 2023

This training will teach and train clinicians in the principles and techniques of delivering EFST for parents as a workshop or in the counselling or therapy office. The training places strong emphasis on experiential learning and will be highly focused on practice change at all levels of experience. It is therefore suitable for practitioners with advanced levels of training and experience in the emotion focused therapies.

This is an emotion-processing, skills-based approach that gives parents simple, practical tools that they can implement immediately in their family. These skills include how to navigate the confusing world of their child’s feelings, how to work with challenges in their child’s motivation, and how to restore their ability to set appropriate boundaries while also restoring positive, productive relationships with their children of any age.

Note that a background in working with families, parents or children is not required. Clinicians who have not worked with families report finding in EFST a new perspective, framework and skill set that also enhances their work with individual clients of any age as well as with couples. The structure of EFST that will be taught has applications to a variety of settings and populations including parents and caregivers, schools, eating disorders, addictions and more.

Access for one year to the EFST-P online course will be included in the registration fee.
