After the first 5 EFCT sessions - Part 1, 3 hours
“EFT Stage 1: After the First 5 Sessions (Part 1)” is the second instalment of the Online EFT specialty workshops series that will help you hone in your EFT skills. This is for participants who have some working knowledge of EFT. In this workshop, you will learn practical strategies in counselling couples in Stage 1. Stage 1 includes: Building an alliance with the couple, tracking and deepen the cycle, accessing emotions that drive the cycle, and de-escalating the conflict by reframing the problem to the dance.
In this second instalment, we will focus on session 6 and subsequent sessions in Stage 1. The goal of Stage 1 is to help couples own their dance, de-escalate the intensity of their conflict, and preparing them for Stage 2 work.
Because there is so much going on in Stage 1, this segment is broken into Part 1 and Part 2. Part 2 will be offered at a later date. In this workshop (i.e. Part 1), we will work through all steps in Stage 1 but especially focus on specific EFT techniques like RISSSC, catching the bullets, etc. Teaching methods will include short concise teachings, video clips, demonstrations, and role-plays. EFT is a systemic model created by Dr. Sue Johnson. Research finds that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% shows significant improvement.
The workshop will:
- Discuss the key ingredients in the first 4 steps in EFT (Stage 1)
- Help you accurately track and deepen the cycle
- Teach you how to access emotions with RISSSC
- Show you how to “catch the bullets” (when a partner attacks during the session)
- Teach you how to do enactments that are relevant to Stage 1
- Build your confidence in stage 1 work
