One-Day EFFT Caregiver Workshop


Does your child—young or adult—suffer from anxiety, depression, substance use problems, an eating disorder, or other mental health concerns? Do you struggle with their behaviour, setting limits or how to respond to their emotions?


Inspired by Emotion-Focused Family Therapy – and with a healthy dose of humor - this evidence-based workshop will introduce practical skills to strengthen relationships, increase cooperation and respond to strong emotional reactions, including expressions of worry, anger, hopelessness, even silence. Caregivers will also be supported to identify and work through co-parenting challenges most often encountered along the way.
