This workshop will outline the pre-requisites and the necessary and sufficient conditions to create the potent change events that predict success at termination and follow-up in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). These change events where partners re-engage and soften emotionally, also have been shown to change the level of attachment security in partners; a change that has significant mental health implications. In these moments of change partners heal their relationships and shape relationships that heal. The workshop will con- sist of conceptual content, the viewing of videos of sessions, experiential exercises and discussion.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Outline the experiential theory of change in EFT and link it to attachment science.
  2. Describe the terrain of change events and how they impact client’s reality - self and system Demonstrate the key interventions that shape change in EFT.
