19th Annual Julie Claire Gutterman Memorial Lecture

featuring George Faller, LMFT

“Emotionally Focused Therapy: Cracking the Code of Love in Couples and Families”

Friday May 4 2018

Crowne Plaza Hotel, Warwick, RI

Emotionally Focused Therapy, developed by Dr. Susan Johnson over the past 25 years, is one of the most empirically validated models of couples therapy in the world.  Focusing on identifying repetitive negative patterns of interaction and replacing them with positive cycles of responsiveness, EFT provides a simple and powerful mechanism for change.

This day-long course will expand the concepts of EFT to families and introduce exciting new ideas from George’s book Sacred Stress. Participants will learn to apply the language of attachment to effect change with their most challenging relationships and stressful events. Making use of videotapes, role plays, and experiential exercises, participants will both see and practice the skills of EFT, a model that is getting worldwide attention for its ability to create the safe haven and secure base that are emblematic of loving and durable relationships.  Whether you work with individuals, couples, or families, you’ll discover how to use EFT to understand emotional dynamics and access attachment issues, create new patterns of emotional healing, and implement a process for achieving deeper connections.

This course includes both didactic instruction and experiential approaches, mirroring the model itself, which help clients both understand their stuck places and have a new, corrective experience in the therapy room.

Approval has been given for 6 CEUs (including 3 in Cross-Cultural Practice) for Social Workers, Psychologists, Marriage & Family Therapists, and licensed mental health counsellors.

Registration is limited. Early registration is strongly encouraged.
