Institute for Emotions-Focused Therapy Denmark is pleased to present this EFT Level 2 advanced 4-day-workshop with Ladislav Timulak, Ph.D. The workshop will provide participants with a deepening of the theory and skills involved in working effectively with emotion in psychotherapy that was begun with the EFT Level 1. This workshop is part of Basic EFT Training at International Society ofr Emotion-Focused Therapy (ISEFT)

Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT)

is a humanistic, evidence-based form of psychotherapy that integrates person-centred, gestalt therapies and other experiential therapies, with particular relevance to working with depression, trauma, and anxiety difficulties. It has gained international recognition through the work of Les Greenberg, Laura Rice, Robert Elliott, Jeanne Watson, Rhonda Goldman, Sandra Paivio, Lynn Angus, Ladislav Timulak and others.

About the workshop

This workshop provides participants with more in-depth skill training beyond the introductory Level 1 workshop and enables discussion of challenges that have emerged in using EFT in participants’ own clinical practice. Participants receive in depth skill training through a combination of brief lectures, video demonstrations, live modelling, case discussion and extensive supervised experiential practice (in which participants learn by working as both client and therapist in small groups). Topics covered over the course of the four days include advanced emotion assessment; productive and unproductive arousal; advanced work with experiential tasks such as two chair and empty dialogues; work with worry and interruptive processes; imaginal restructuring; application of EFT to specific populations & problems (with a particular focus on generalised anxiety); and case formulation for specific disorders.

The workshop is aimed for

qualified clinical/counselling psychologists and accredited counsellors/psychotherapists who have completed ISEFT EFT Level 1, and aspire to attain ISEFT accreditation of Basic EFT Training by completing EFT level 1 -3 or who wants to deepen practice learned at EFT Level 1.
