ICYMI: Emotionally Focused Therapy Workshop

Lorrie Brubacher, M.Ed., LMFT, delivered an engaging training in September on Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT).  This workshop was an introduction that explained the basic theory of EFT and its goal of transforming relationships from distress to secure bonds. Through case study examples and video of sessions, attendees got clear, clinical examples of how to use EFT with couples. In the afternoon, attendees practiced the model through role-plays which provided an opportunity to apply and experience the power of using EFT with couples in distress. Work with couples is often described by clinicians as hard work, overwhelming and even emotionally draining; however, after Lorrie’s training, those who attended left feeling energized and excited to use skills learned with couples. One clinician even stated, “I hope to get more referrals for couples soon!”       

More feedback included:

“Excellent presentation!”

“Excellent presentation! I really enjoyed that videos and discussion about cases.”

“Great to have someone qualified to present on EFT or couples in our area— thanks for that!”

“I really enjoyed the workshop and was glad it was offered. I’ve followed EFT for sometime and this is the first workshop in the area on this topic.”
