Emotionally Focused Family Therapy:
Creating Secure Bonds for Parents and Children
Emotionally Focused Family Therapy helps families create a secure base for children to grow and leave from through increasing emotional accessibility and responsiveness between family members. In this workshop, the key concepts of EFFT from an attachment perspective will be highlighted along with a description of the essential differences between EFT and EFFT. The therapeutic map will be elucidated including decisions on how to plan the course of treatment and how, within session, to shape the key moments of change.
