EFT in Action: Moving from Training to Practice

Workshop 2 – Now that we’ve arrived at an emotion, what do I do?

The AIEFT is excited to be hosting the workshop series ‘Emotion focused therapy in action’, run by Barry Strmelj. These workshops are suitable for practitioners with a background in EFT training (at least EFT Level 1) and who utilise, or are looking to incorporate EFT into their work with clients.

The second topic of this series Now that we’ve arrived at an emotion, what do I do? will explore ways that therapists help clients expand on and explore emotion. Balancing following and leading, the empathic exploration task in EFT helps to elaborate the client’s internal experience. Offering invitations to explore and how exploration is done with rather than to the client will be considered. The characteristic ways that clients might block or get in the way of exploring emotion and therapists responses that further the therapeutic process will be considered.

Each workshop in this series will offer a deep dive into an area of EFT practice to offer a deeper understanding of the practice area under consideration, to inspire confidence when working with clients in this way, and to provide a practice map for practitioners’ ongoing self-reflections and development.
