Parents and caregivers often feel helpless when their child (no matter the age) is experiencing a mental health issue such as depression, anxiety, psychosis, or an eating disorder. They are also often left out of treatment: sometimes because the child requests this; sometimes because the parent requests individual treatment for the child; and sometimes due to agency protocol. Yet family members, if provided with the opportunity and the right tools, can often have the biggest impact on a child’s healing. This is where Emotion-Focused Family Therapy comes in.
Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) is an innovative treatment model, rooted in a deep and unwavering belief in the healing power of families. The goal of EFFT is to support and empower caregivers to adopt a primary role in their loved one’s recovery, regardless of the loved one’s age, level of motivation or involvement in formal treatment themselves.
This two-day interactive workshop will introduce participants to the fundamental principles and techniques of EFFT. Through discussions, case examples, demonstrations, and small and large group exercises, participants will also have an opportunity for hands-on practice and skill-building.
Background/experience in family therapy is not necessary. ** This is an interactive live-stream event using Zoom, an online meeting platform.**
