Emotion-Focused Therapy [Module 1]

Date: 29 Nov 2018 - 1 Dec 2018

Singapore

Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) proposes that emotions have an adaptive potential that, if activated, can help clients change. This view of emotion is based on the belief that emotion, at its core, is an innate and adaptive system that has evolved to help us survive and thrive.

Clients are helped in therapy to better identify, experience, explore, make sense of, transform and flexibly manage their emotions. As a result, clients become more skilful in accessing the important information and meanings about themselves and their world that emotions contain, as well as become more skillful in using that information to live vitally and adaptively.

Course Content

This is the first of four modules of EFT workshop. It offers a grand tour of this therapeutic approach that integrates person center therapy, gestalt therapy, experiential therapy and existential therapy.

The hallmark of EFT is that in addition to providing an empathic relationship the therapist also guides clients’ emotional processing in different ways at different times.

The following topic will be covered:

• Dialectical Constructivist theory
• Markers identification and EFT tasks - A roadmap for EFT
• Emotion assessment
• Principles of emotional change
• Model of change in EFT
• Introduction to Focusing
• Introduction to Two chair dialogue for splits
• Introduction to Unfinished Business
