NYCEFT Quarterly Seminar

Relentless Focus in EFT

It is no accident that the word "focused" is in the name of this model.  Most of us have heard Sue Johnson, EFT trainers and supervisors say again and again: slice it thinner, stay with it, focus on the process, focus on emotion, focus on attachment significance, etc.  Yet, it is very challenging to stay focused when couples are escalated or intellectualizing, when seemingly important content is brought up and things move really fast.

In this seminar, Zoya Simakhodskaya, Ph.D. will
focus our attention on ways to stay focused in sessions and avoid getting overwhelmed or lost.  Video segments will be used to illustrate the teaching.  Debi Scimeca-Diaz, LMFT will be the discussant.
