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

November 7, 2023 - November 10, 2023

Emotion-Focused Skills Training (EFST) for Parents is an evidence-based, innovative, ultra-simple, and quickly effective parent and family support program that facilitates a transformational partnership between families and professionals. EFST supports parents by empowering them as active, primary agents in guiding loved ones of any age through the behavioral, emotional, and relational challenges of everyday living and relating, as well as through the challenges their loved ones face when struggling with a mental health issue, a physical health issue, or any other special circumstances including social and educational challenges.

This training will teach and train clinicians in the principles and techniques of delivering EFST for Parents as a workshop, webinar, or on an individual family basis.

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 new to emotion focused training as well as for those with basic or advanced levels of training and experience in the emotion focused therapies.

Note that a background in working with families, parents, or children is not required. The structure of EFST that will be taught also has applications to a variety of settings and populations including parents and caregivers, schools, and addictions.  Click here for the registration form.
