    Going Into the Fire

    Working with Highly Escalated Couples

    Do escalated couples make you want to quit being a therapist? Join us as we explore those moments of greatest difficulty for couples, from still-face to high reactivity to despair and rage. Learn how to keep your focus and go deeper in the face of reactivity. We’ll explore, demonstrate, practice and integrate in an interactive, experiential way. Through a combination of lecture, videotaped session samples, and exercises, participants will learn to better conceptualize EFT and to help couples recognize and deescalate problematic cycles of interaction. Participants will also learn to help couples create or restore the emotional bond between them once the negative cycle, and the attachment needs that drive it, has been understood thus deescalate problematic cycles of interaction.

    "The Core skills training has deepened my understanding of all of the steps in EFT and helped me feel a more solid foundation. The steps are explained clearly and the role plays are very effective in getting us to experience what our clients feel, and practice being there for them. I also liked the way the two day sessions were spaced out by several weeks. That gave us time to integrate the information and try on using it."  Carolyn McIntyre, LCSW

    Intimate partner violence: Fighting for a safer connection

    Lieven Migerode and Jeff Slootmaeckers


    Research shows that intimate partner violence is rather frequent; even more so in couples seeking couple therapy. However, the subject of violence often remains hidden from the therapist. Or due to contraindication, couples seeking therapy are often refused.

    The vision of this workshop is that, in many couples, the underlying strong, heavy negative interaction patterns are paramount in the violence. These patterns form a challenge for many therapists in working with these couples, and often the violence between the partners is central to the therapeutic process. In this case, it is remarkable that these couples mostly want us, the therapist, to work toward a safer relationship where they can stay together and the violence stops. How can this be approached when violence is often seen as a contraindication for couple therapy and EFT? Based on new scientific knowledge about intimate partner violence and their experience, Lieven and Jef have worked together to come to a deeper understanding of this difficult relational drama. 

    In this workshop we outline a theoretical roadmap how we can understand intimate partner violence from an attachment focused point of view, and how we can use EFT in helping these couples to fight for a healthier, safer connection. We outline specific interventions to use and discuss several important topics such as assessment, de-escalation, the attachment meanings of violence, and common self-of-therapist challenges.  

    This two-day workshop will include lecture, q&a, video material, personal exercises and will make space for participant dialogue. The workshop offers a mini roadmap that can be inserted in the larger EFT map for therapy. Ideally participants should have a basic training in EFT or read basic works so that we can build on this. Participants will receive articles before the workshop to familiarize themselves with the basic concepts of the workshop. 

    WHEN: FEBRUARY 28-29, 2020 9AM-5PM

    WHERE: NOMAD Tower, 1250 Broadway (Downstairs)
