Soothing the Untamed Cycle:
EFT with High Conflict Couples
Rebecca Jorgensen, Ph, Certified EFT Trainer and Supervisor
**This event is full with a waitlist.
Feel free to register and select the "waitlist" option.**SUBJECT:
Couples therapy is hard, even with a map to understanding the attachment and emotional dilemmas that drive conflict and prevent effective relationship repair. When couples come in for treatment with increasing escalating interactions even experienced clinicians can have difficulty being effective. This workshop is designed to help you navigate these stormy waters so you don’t get lost or confused in reactivity and misattunement and feel confident in the middle of the storm.
Join us to learn how to harness the power of anger so you can meet couples where they are and help them make meaning of their powerful emotion and pattern so you can create safety in session and help them deescalate. We’ll experiment, demonstrate, practice and integrate in an interactive and experience based way.
Through a combination of lecture, videotape and exercises, participants will learn to:
A) Identify who’s who in the high conflict couple – when both partners look like pursuers.
B) Articulate the relationship pattern starting to happen with difficult couples.
C) Practice how to validate and how to manage the conflict.
D) Identify and work with the barrier/discomfort in working with high conflict couples.
