Outline for Presentations

In order to receive credit for an Core Skills Training, participants need to present their own work on one occasion. The presentation can be in video or audio form. Audiotapes must be accompanied by a transcript of 15 minutes of the session. Each presentation will be a maximum of one hour long. During this presentation, the therapist will briefly present the case (outline to follow), show 15-20 minutes of the session and allow 20 minutes for discussion and questions. It is not required that the case is specific to the Steps being discussed but the case must be a session that is EFT in orientation.

For the case presentation, the following can be covered:

Background data (ages, work, marital status, children, previous marriages)
Presenting problem, the history behind the presenting problem, and previous therapy experience
Relationship history (when they met, early history, previous attachment injuries)
Attachment history (family of origin, sense of secure attachment, previous trauma or significant life events)
Where is this session in the EFT process? (# of sessions to date, what Stage and Steps are the couple working on, cycle definition, change events)
What are your questions for this session? For example: Where are the stuck places? What needs to happen next? What interventions do you find difficult?
