Online EFT Workshop:
Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT):
Stage 1 Parental Responsiveness
Sep 10, 2022
Dr. Herman Chow, RP, RMFT, CCFT
“Emotionally Focused Family Therapy Stage 1: Parental Responsiveness” is the tenth instalment of the Online EFT workshops series that will hone your EFT skills. This workshop is for participants who have some working knowledge of EFT and want to expand their EFT skills into family therapy. Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), an evidence-based model developed by Dr. Sue Johnson, can be used effectively in working with families.
If working with couples is tough, family work is even more challenging. There are more people that the therapist needs to attend to. Often, the therapist can get lost and overwhelmed by the pulling of the different family members. EFFT can be an effective model that moves family members from attachment distress to attachment security. This course is approved for 3 CAMFT CEU credits. Learn more about this course here or go directly here to register.
Online EFT Workshop:
Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT): Stage 2 Child Vulnerability
Dr. Herman Chow, RP, RMFT, CCFT
“Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) Stage 2: Child Vulnerability” is the eleventh online EFT workshops series instalment that will hone your EFT skills. This is the heart of EFFT as the therapist helps the child (young child, teen, and adult child) express their vulnerabilities and attachment needs to their caregivers. This workshop is based on the assumption that the participants have a working knowledge of EFFT Stage 1. If you don’t have a good idea about EFFT Stage 1 or have not attended the previous workshop on “EFFT Stage 1: Parental Responsiveness”, I highly recommend you purchase and watch the training (see https://www.hermanchow.com/store/c3/EFT_Workshops.html).
