Description

By zeroing in on underlying attachment needs, Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) offers a powerful process for transformational change. This recording will show you how to confidently lead family members through distress and past injuries to create new relational patterns, bond with each other, and experience a fuller sense of security. Whether you work with individuals, couples, or families, discover how to: 

  • Use EFFT as a guide through a family’s emotional dynamics and key attachment issues 
  • Create new patterns of emotional healing that engage a family’s natural ability to repair  
  • Identify protective patterns that block individuals from opening to vulnerability and growth 
  • Implement a three-stage process for achieving deeper family connections through creating new alliances, accessing vulnerabilities, and engaging new patterns of positive interaction
