Highly escalated clients present unique challenges for the couples therapist. Clinicians often feel frustrated and overwhelmed when they are unable to help clients reduce their reactivity, regain self-control, and treat their partners constructively.

Join internationally renowned EFT trainer, Ting Liu, Ph.D., for a one-day workshops on applying Emotionally Focused Therapy to this challenging population. Suitable for clinicians with a basic understanding of attachment and family systems, these workshops will teach hands-on techniques with demonstrated success in treating trauma survivors and other highly aroused couples.

Dr. Liu will teach specific techniques for deescalating intense conflict in couples therapy. Attendees will learn interventions and treatment strategies to interrupt destructive arguments, reduce emotional arousal, create safety, and develop constructive interactional cycles that promote secure bonding.

The workshops will utilize case presentations and small group exercises so participants can immediately apply the skills being taught.
