About Emotion-Focused Therapy

Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) is an empirically-supported humanistic treatment that views emotions as centrally important in human functioning and therapeutic change. This experiential approach integrates person centered therapy, gestalt therapy and existential therapy. Persons receiving EFT treatment become stronger and are more skillful in accessing the important information and meanings about themselves and their world that emotions contain, and become more skillful in using that information to live vitally and adaptively.

Date: 22, 23, 24 April 2024

Time: 9am – 5pm

Venue: To be announced

Pre-requisite: Participants must have completed EFT Module 1

Synopsis

Level 2 further equips participants in the application of EFT tasks. This is done by introducing concepts such as the 6 principles of emotional change, and memory reconsolidation. The two major tasks: two-chair dialogue, and unfinished business, will be covered in greater depth and details. Two other central and core themes, case formulation and therapeutic relationship in EFT will also be covered.

Case formulation in EFT is neither diagnostic nor problem finding. It is a collaborative process with the clients that entails both “leading” and “following”. This is where an EFT therapist “follows and track” clients’ pain and at appropriate junctures “lead” clients, through a collaborative process, to engage in certain tasks. Participants would be introduced to the idea of “forming a focus” in therapy jointly with clients.

Therapeutic Relationship. The relationship between client and therapist forms a supporting structure in “holding” clients in their pain. It is in this “holding” that clients are willing to dive deep into their emotional injuries. Topics such as; how to engage clients in first few sessions of EFT; how to establish therapeutic presence and also what to do in relationship difficulties with clients, would be covered.
