Walking Into the Fire: Working with Highly Escalated Couples

November 23 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

$40 – $100

Walking 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 conceptualise EFT and to help couples recognise and de-escalate 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, have been understood.

George Faller, faculty at the Ackerman Institute for Families and Founder and President of the NYC Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy, is a Certified EFT Therapist, Supervisor and Trainer, and co-author of the books *Sacred Stress* and *True Connections*. A former FDNY Captain turned Marriage and Family Therapist, George brings a unique voice and presence to working with couples and families while demonstrating the power of the EFT model. George relates his journey with EFT in this short video

We are pleased to welcome George to Melbourne again, though only ‘virtually’ for now. You may remember George presented via videolink for our MCEFT launch in 2017. You can find his presentation here.
