The focus of this two-day training in the application of EFT with trauma survivor couples, if to work to help the trauma survivor reach open-heartedly and the partner respond vulnerably. This training emphasizes three key features in working with emotional echoes: clinical assessment and identification of various personal and relationship factors that impact clinical decision-making, key EFT interventions central to working with emotion both intrapsychically and interpersonally, and the how of pacing intrapsychic and interpersonal work.

In this training, the importance of the clinician’s ability to monitor and respond to client’s moment-to- moment experiences, especially extreme states of numbing, will be highlighted. Participants will come away with the knowledge of how to work intrapsychically piece-by-piece with partners in order to work interpersonally to create healing between them. Participants will learn how to support the trauma survivor in cultivating courage to reach for comfort and protection (tension between fears and longings) and how to prepare partners to be responsive (an amazing privilege but also an extraordinary pressure for the partner of a trauma survivor). Participants learn how to stay in the process when clients become activated emotionally, a common outcome of trauma, and when, we, the clinicians, get triggered.

Through teaching, video presentation, and experiential learning, you’ll see how to use voice, reflection, and deepening interventions to help partners make contact, stay in contact in order to distill, and then share vulnerabilities with each other in order to break the familiar yet dreaded feeling of emotional isolation, a common result of enduring trauma.

Dr. Kathryn Rheem, Director of the Washington Baltimore Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy (WBCEFT) for the last seven years, has trained hundreds of mental health clinicians in EFT nationally and internationally. She has been a student of EFT since 2002, has been using this empirically-validated approach exclusively in private practice since 2005, and continues to study and learn the model daily. Along with her mentor Dr. Sue Johnson, originator of EFT, Kathryn’s best teachers of this humanistic, attachment-based model are the couples she works with weekly in private practice. Together, Sue & Kathryn created Strong Bonds, Strong Couples, LLC, which provided EFT-based weekend retreats for Soldiers & Marines coming home from the wars Iraq and Afghanistan and their partners at military installations in the U.S. and abroad. Kathryn has trained U.S. Army Chaplains & European Regional Medical Command in EFT and consults monthly with the U.S. Veterans Administration. She works extensively with couples where one or both partners have endured trauma and has written and presented on the application of EFT with trauma numerous times. Kathryn was voted a Top Couples Therapist in Washington, D.C. by the Washingtonian magazine in December 2012. A clinical fellow and approved Supervisor of AAMFT, she has written nine articles/chapters on the application of EFT.
