Sharon Ramsay, MDiv, RMFT, asked us to share the following information about a project called Just Relating. 

Since my presentation at the CAMFT 2019 National Conference, I have been involved in a project that has been life-giving for my practice of Emotionally Focused Therapy.  I have had the privilege of meeting weekly with EFT therapists from the US, Iran, and Zimbabwe to understand how to integrate the sociocultural context of people’s lives into attachment-oriented therapy.

Together, we have produced a project called www.justrelating.org

 Our conversations have shaped this training to be inclusive of the diversity that people bring to their relationships and to the ways in which they navigate life.  We also hope this work encourages therapists to grow in awareness of our own presence in the room and the willingness to be vulnerable.  

 Attachment gives us a frame and EFT gives us the map. My Canadian heart hopes that sociocultural attunement will give us flexibility to absorb the shocks in the road.

Treating Couples -  November 5 - November 6, 2021 

Couples therapy is complicated and challenging; the complexity of our socio-political-cultural contexts during this worldwide health crisis has made it more so. The persistent stress of the pandemic has been a strain on couples and therapists alike. Effective couples therapy requires the ability to understand and address many types of intersectional identities, family forms, ethnicities, and relational challenges within the larger cultural context. Increased challenges are pushing therapists to address emerging issues. To learn more and to register please click here
