EMOTION FOCUSED FAMILY THERAPY WORKSHOP FOR PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS for addiction, substance use and other mental health concerns
Limited seating - Thursday and Friday April 24 and 25th, 2014.
Click here to register.
Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) is a new and innovative treatment model for the caregivers of individuals struggling with anxiety, depression and substance disorders. Different from many of the mainstream treatment models, EFFT is rooted in the deep belief in the healing power of families across the lifespan.
The goal of EFFT is to support parents and caregivers to take on the roles of recovery coach (to support their loved one to manage their symptoms) and emotion coach (to support their loved one with the strong emotions that come up throughout the process). Parents and caregivers are also taught how to heal emotional injuries in the family's past, including repairing parent-child relationships, if appropriate.
EFFT is a very powerful mode of therapy and parents and caregivers are taught practical skills and techniques that can be used to support their loved one's recovery regardless of his or her age and/or motivation for change. Parents and caregivers are also supported to work through their own fears and emotional reactions that will no doubt arise throughout the challenging road toward recovery and wellness.
