Certificate in Emotion-Focused Therapy (Individual) (Class 2)

Date: 18 Feb 2019 - 25 Feb 2019

Hong Kong

Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) is a form of process-experiential psychotherapy integrating person-centered therapy, Gestalt therapy, experiential therapy, existential therapy with contemporary emotion theory. It is an empirically supported therapy based on over 30 years of clinical research on the process of change. The change process is facilitated through enhancing emotion awareness, emotion expression, emotion regulation, reflection on emotional experience and emotion transformation. This therapy proposes that the best way to achieve enduring changes in cognition, behavior and interaction with others is through changing emotion with emotion.

This training aims at laying a solid foundation to build on different therapeutic tasks in emotion-focused therapy. This is an intensive practice-oriented and experience-based workshop. Participants will have regular hands on practice on both perceptual and procedural skills in working with emotions based on a comprehensive and in-depth understanding of emotions.
