Fundamentals of Emotionally Focused Therapy May 2024

30 May 9:00 am - 4:30 pm AEST

Grounded in attachment science and drawing on cutting-edge research, this course is a 1-day introduction to Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Attachment Theory for all modalities: individual, couple, and family therapy. More than just an introduction, Fundamentals provides the overall context of EFT and explains how Dr Sue Johnson’s original “couple” model can be applied effectively in work with families (typically engaging with dyads) and individuals (e.g., working with the individual and a younger / child self, or the individual and the inner experience of another person in their life).

If you are interested in evidence-based, systemic and experiential approaches to common psychological presentations (depression, anxiety, interpersonal issues), this course is for you.
