Emotion-Focused Family Therapy
May 5-6-7, 2020

London, UK

Facilitated by

Jennifer Danby, Msc

with special video link sessions by Dr. Adèle Lafrance C.Psych

*This training is recognized by the International Institute for EFFT*

The essence of EFFT is to increase the positive role of caregivers in their child’s 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 specific ways - including recovery coaching, emotion coaching and relationship repair. The model also involves a module for clinicians to support caregivers to identify, understand, and transform “emotion blocks” that lead to therapy-interfering attitudes or behaviours.


This final component is critical since throughout the course of treatment, some well-intentioned caregivers can struggle to support their loved one’s treatment. They may even engage in behaviours that enable their loved one’s symptoms, creating challenges for the most experienced clinicians. For this reason, the EFFT model includes a module for clinician and team challenges as well. For more information on EFFT, click here.


Background/experience in family therapy is not necessary.


This is an excellent learning opportunity for medical professionals, psychologists, social workers, nurses, educators and others who interact with individuals, parents and/or families.


This training includes experiential components and participants will learn techniques that can be integrated into existing approaches for those those who do not respond to standard care.
