Gail Palmer EFT Talk

Emotionally Focused Family Therapy Talk – By Gail Palmer (RMFT, MSW)

When: Saturday, October 27, 2018 – 2pm – 3:30 pm EST

Where: Virtually or Saint Paul University Ottawa Ontario

Presented by CAMFT

EFFT is an attachment based intervention which conceptualizes family difficulties as attachment dilemmas. For example, children’s misbehaviour can be understood as bids for connection that become scrambled and misread by parents who are caught in their own reactive behaviours and emotions.  The EFFT therapist implements systemic and experiential interventions to help de-escalate the family’s negative dance that reinforces this attachment insecurity and works to activate the inherent parental desire to caretake their children. By structuring enactments that help children receive comfort and support from their parent, the EFFT therapist works to restore family bonds that foster resilience for children.

Objectives for Workshop

  1. Participants will demonstrate an ability to conceptualize the family system and the problems families encounter from an attachment perspective.
  2. Participants will demonstrate an increased knowledge of the Emotionally Focused Therapy Model as it applies to the family context.
