Please join us for the Quarterly EFT Seminar

Senior NYCEFT supervisors, Angela DeCandia and George Faller, will present a unique collaborative approach to a family therapy case providing EFT for the couple and EFFT to the parents and their adopted children, all of whom experienced various degrees of attachment traumas, abuse and neglect. 

Pre- and post-intervention measurements were administered in order to examine the impact of the couple's de-escalation, stress reduction and subsequent attachment healing upon family functioning, conflict, and healing attachment needs of the children.  This data will be presented in addition to video segments of couple, siblings and family EFT sessions. Gail Palmer, a senior ICEEFT trainer with expertise in EFFT will be the discussant.
