January 22, 23, 29 & 31 2024
12 CE Credits
Adele Lafrance, PhD, C.Psych &
Natasha Files MSW, RSW
The essence of EFFT is to afford caregivers a role in supporting their loved one’s well-being, treatment and/or recovery, regardless of their age, level of motivation or involvement in formal treatment themselves. The clinician’s role is to support parents and caregivers to increase their involvement in three domains including: 1. behavior coaching, 2. emotion coaching and in the use of 3. therapeutic apologies, if relevant. A fourth module involves supporting caregivers to identify, understand, and transform “emotion blocks” that can lead to therapy-interfering attitudes or behaviors in caregivers. A similar module will be introduced to identify and transform clinician blocks.
Dr. Lafrance and Natasha Files will introduce EFFT theory and skills, engaging participants using didactic and experiential learning, including skills and techniques that can be integrated into existing treatment models for those clients & families who do not respond to standard care. Videos will also be shared for demonstration purposes.
