Solving the Key Challenges of Couple Therapy with EFT
Couple therapy can be a challenging modality for even the best of therapists. This workshop will address the key challenges and outline how they are addressed in EFT, a systematic, empirically tested model for on-target intervention. These challenges include, the creation and maintenance of a vibrant and secure alliance with both partners, dealing with partner hostility in highly escalated couples, de-escalating recurring negative cycles of interaction that perpetuate distress, shaping engagement in shut down partners, choreographing risk taking and crafting corrective emotional moments of secure bonding. This workshop will involve didactic presentation, the viewing of taped therapy sessions and an experiential exercise.

For the first time in the United States, Creating Connections 2016 brought together the world's most-renowned and followed neuroscience and psychotherapy experts as they focused on the continuing impact of cutting-edge science. All previous Creating Connections conferences have been held in Efteling, the Netherlands, since their inception in 2011.
The practice of psychotherapy is undergoing a revolution because of the latest research showing the ways people are wired for relationships and how they can employ innate tools for managing those relationships. The researchers and scientists at Creating Connections 2016 helped attendees and viewers develop their own framework and techniques for applying this science in their work with adults, couples, children, and families.
Learn from the best in the world as they elucidated the therapies that have demonstrated effectiveness in peer-reviewed clinical research.
