Interventions for In-Person or Online Applications


Trained and dedicated as we are in our helping professions, we all know how to “talk about” emotions. The trouble with emotions, however, is that when clients leave our office (or our Zoom/Skype session) and then feel their intense emotions – when they are caught in a tornado of rage, or sinking into a black hole of despair – the talk may not have prepared them sufficiently for the feelings that they later experience. 


In Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), we work with experienced emotion in the session, in a very specific, definable, learnable way. The EFT therapist balances following and leading the client, to support them in developing self-efficacy with their emotional experiences. We follow the client to their most painful core emotions, and we guide or lead them in how to process and work with their emotions, to be able to live productively with the array of feelings in the human experience.


This 3-hour webinar will offer an introduction to the EFT conceptualization of emotion, and instruction in some basic EFT interventions that participants may incorporate into their current work setting and their current therapeutic framework. Topics will include basics about emotion, the impact of emotion on motivation to change, and productive emotion processing. Teaching of tools will include an introduction to assessing the quality of a client’s emotion processing style, utilizing specific empathic attunement to emotion, and utilizing the steps of EFT emotion processing and the associated tools for increasing client “emotion self-efficacy.” 


Learning Objectives:
