    *Q. Are the CE’s included in the price of the workshop? No, you may purchase your CE’s directly at the events.  The reason is that anyone can attend from clinicians, clergy, students and couples.  Not everyone needs nor wants CE’s, so we would unnecessarily be charging people.  Also, we are not a CEU provider.  We use PESI Inc. (which are their fees).  We do not make any money on CEU’s.

Workshop Description

This workshop with Dr. Sue Johnson, leading proponent of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, will focus on the growing science of emotional bonds in adulthood and how it provides a map for on target, efficient and effective intervention in distressed relationships. Dr. Johnson will provide an overview of bonding science, the practice of EFT and the key ingredients that shape meaningful and lasting change in love relationships.

The challenges of couple therapy, such as healing affairs, escalated couples, and co-morbid anxiety and depression will be addressed. The workshop will offer didactic teaching, discussion, viewing clinical sessions and experiential exercises.

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe the key elements of bonding and attachment and their clinical implications
  • Outline the process of change in EFT – reprocessing emotion and shaping new dialogues
  • Explore new ways to see and intervene in relationship problems.
