Join me in this exciting, innovative, simple and effective hands-on learning parenting program.
WHAT IS THE EMOTION FOCUSED SKILLS TRAINING
The program is an emotion-processing, skills-based approach that gives parents practical tools that they can implement immediately in their family.
The program is designed to support parents by empowering them as active, primary agents in guiding their loved ones through emotional, behavioral or relational challenges, as well as with struggles in everyday living such as eating disorders, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, physical or educational challenges. The program is an emotion-processing, skills-based approach that gives parents practical tools that they can implement immediately in their family.
This program has been developed by Dr. Joanne Dolhanty who developed the application of Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) to Eating Disorders. She is the co-developer of Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) and is well known in the field for her clinical work and as a trainer/supervisor to many clinicians here and around the world.
