NYCEFT Quarterly Seminar

"Working with an Escalated Trauma Couple" 

When: Friday, December 5, 3:30-5:30 PM 

Where: Birch Family Services
104 West 29th Street (at Sixth Ave.)
2nd Floor Training Room

EFT work with a Muslim couple who are both dealing with trauma, illustrating how reactive trauma unfolds in session. They each desire to connect but can’t because it is unsafe. She is protecting herself and rejects any moves he makes, and feels totally alone. He struggles to access any feeling, protects his inner self from his wife, and feels like he can’t do anything to help. Both want things to be better and realize they are struggling.

Video excerpts from a live consult session in which the EFT work is focused on creating movement to shift them out of their stuckness.
