Emotion-Focused Therapy (Level 2)

The Institute of Emotion-Focused Therapy Ireland hosts an intensive four-day level 2 training workshop in Emotion-Focused Therapy (for individuals). The training is open to participants who have already completed a Level 1 training and wish to advance their practice of EFT. It is also suitable for participants with more experience who are interested in further training & the opportunity to explore issues that have arisen in clinical practice.

  • Thursday 5th – Sunday 8th December, 2019

  • Centre for Professional Therapy, Baggot St., D2, Dublin

  • Facilitated by Ladislav Timulak, PhD

  • €725 (€650 early bird bookings fully paid by 30/06/2019)

Training Outline: This workshop provides participants with more in-depth skill training beyond the introductory Level One workshop and enables discussion of challenges that have emerged in using EFT in participants' own clinical practice. Participants receive in depth skill training through a combination of brief lectures, video demonstrations, live modelling, case discussion and extensive supervised experiential practice (in which participants learn by working as both client and therapist in small groups). Topics covered over the course of the four days include advanced emotion assessment; productive and unproductive arousal; advanced work with experiential tasks such as two chair and empty dialogues; work with worry and interruptive processes; imaginal restructuring; application of EFT to specific populations & problems (with a particular focus on generalised anxiety); and case formulation for specific disorders.
