Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) in Action, Road Map to Emotional Healing: An outline of the theory and practice of Emotionally Focused Therapy with Couples and Individuals.

In this excellent introduction to the theory and practice of EFT by Gulya Diyarova, participants will get a clear sense of what the EFT model is and its well researched effectiveness as a therapeutic approach. Gulya will walk participants through the model’s stages and steps, showing how to focus on the attachment significance of a couple’s struggle and distress, to stay gently and steadily with partners’ vulnerable emotions and fears, and lead them into connectedness and a secure bond with each other.
Participants will engage in experiential exercises, skills and interventions practice, and discussion of clinical examples and video demonstrations of couple sessions.

  • Do your clients question if their partners are there for them?
  • Do they wonder about their partner’s accessibility?
  • Do they question the responsiveness of their partner when they need them?

This attachment-based, experiential, humanistic and systemic model offers a comprehensive theory of adult love, as well as a structured therapeutic “road map” to conflict reduction and the healing of damaged attachment bonds with the aim of creating safe emotional connection between partners.
The model recognises that relationship distress results from an actual, or perceived threat to the basic adult need for safety, security and closeness in intimate relationships. Couples in conflict tend to lose themselves in reactive emotions or withdraw into non-responsiveness and shutting down. Both behaviours become part of a negative cycle that leaves the partners hurt, alone and disconnected.
Using the power of emotion as a target and agent of change, EFT focuses on helping partners re-structure the emotional responses that maintain habitual negative interactional patterns. Once vulnerable emotions are owned and shared by each partner, trust  and meaningful connection can be re-established in a safe way through the  corrective emotional experience that occurs during the session.
A substantial body of research outlining the effectiveness of EFT now exists, with research studies finding that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery, and around 90% show significant improvement.
This Introductory training will include an exploration of:

  • The key concepts of Emotionally Focused Therapy
  • The language of emotions – core primary emotions and attachment needs
  • Understanding of Internal Working Models, Attachment Styles
  • Most common Negative Cycles of relationship distress
  • Stages and steps of the EFT model including the key change events in the process of therapy
  • EFT interventions on the basis of clinical material including video clips of live therapy sessions
  • How to work with the couple’s vulnerable emotions by tracking their underlying interactional pattern and helping them to flexibly manage their emotional experience

Participants will engage in experiential exercises, skills and interventions practice, and discussion of clinical examples and video demonstrations of couple sessions.
