Using emotion to transform problematic internal processes in psychotherapy

This training will introduce powerful and efficient emotion-focused interventions (including but not limited to chair-work interventions) for:

  1. The transformation of self-criticism and emotional self-interruptions in therapy
  2. The cultivation of assertive anger and forgiveness

Informed by theory and techniques from EFT and EFFT, participants will be provided with scripts and opportunities to engage with theory experientially and observe the interventions in action via video demonstration. No prior training required. Participation can be active or passive.

Learning objectives:

  • Apply emotion-focused interventions in individual therapy
  • Describe theories for the development of self-critical and self-interruption processes
  • Explain emotion-focused change mechanisms
