Non-Pathologizing Approach To Counselling

with Michael Towers, MFC, CPC-S, RMFT-S, RCC-ACS, CCC, CCS

Thursday, September 19, 2024 

 9am-4pm PT, 10am-5pm MT, 11am-6pm CT, 12pm-7pm ET 

The profession of psychotherapy / counselling was built on the medical model, which perpetuates a pathologizing of the client. This workshop is designed to equip practitioners who wish to sit with their clients in non-pathologizing ways. You will learn how to take the training you have already acquired, along with each modality’s interventions, and translate them into a non-pathologizing perspective. It is advised that you purchase the textbook and workbook to help you apply the theories and principles to your practice.

Participants will be able to: 

  1. Understand the difference between pathology and non-pathology within the context of psychotherapy / counselling
  2. Understand the key principles / theories behind a non-pathologizing approach to counselling
  3. Demonstrate familiarity with the literature behind the key principles / theories of non-pathology
  4. Demonstrate familiarity with the application of the non-pathologizing principles
  5. Develop a non-pathologizing perspective for your main modality and related interventions

Registration for this even will open soon. This will count as 6 hours CEUs for members.

Dr. Herman Chow, RP, RMFT, CCFT
Certified EFT Therapist and Supervisor (EFIT, EFCT, EFFT)

CACFT Supervisor Mentor, AAMFT Approved Supervisor

Attachment Injury Resolution Model (AIRM) is the ninth 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. AIRM is an evidence-based Stage 2 process of Emotionally Focused Therapy that promotes repair and recovery from attachment injuries in couple relationships. AIRM is built from the backbone of Stage 1 work (de-escalation and ownership of the injury) and early Stage 2 work (sufficient withdrawer engagement work). In this interactive workshop (based on Buchanan and Brubacher’s AIRM program), Dr. Herman Chow will break down each step of the EFT Stage 2 work so that the participants will have a clear understanding of the steps necessary to resolve attachment injuries. If you offer couple therapy and have couples who are stuck in their attachment injuries such as affairs, porn addiction, etc., you need to attend this workshop.  Early Bird Ends July 30, 2024 This will count as 7 hours of CEUs for CACFT members and others.
