Via Video Conferencing – Zoom
Tuesday June 2 & Thursday June 4
9:00 – 12:00 (both days)
The essence of Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) is to afford Professionals a significant role in supporting a person’s recovery from an eating disorder and associated mental health issues. This 2-part workshop will focus on the Professionals role of supporting in four main domains:
1) Behaviour Coach, that is assisting someone with an Eating Disorder – regardless of age – in the interruption of ED symptoms and maladaptive behaviours.
2) Becoming an Emotion Coach, that is supporting someone to approach, process and manage stress, emotions and emotional pain, making ED symptoms unnecessary to cope.
3) Facilitating relationship repair and healing possible wounds from the persons past to help them let go of the weight of old injuries, and
4) Identifying and discussing blocks in caregivers (and professionals) that may interfere with their use of EFFT skills.
Educators and clinicians can support parents and caregivers to learn these skills and take on these roles regardless of their loved one’s level of motivation or involvement in formal treatment.
