An Introduction to EFT for Couples Therapists

Moving Couples Beyond Repair: Repatterning Relationships in Emotionally Focused Therapy
A Workshop for experienced mental health professionals


Join us for a one-day professional development workshop with Elana Katz, EFT Trainer & Senior Faculty Member of the Ackerman Institute for the Family in New York.

Mental health professionals are faced with the challenge of helping troubled couples repair painful marriages and intimate relationships.

In this full-day workshop for experienced clinicians, participants will learn key concepts and tools of Emotionally Focused Therapy, a treatment model that addresses the repetitive patterns of couples in distressed relationships and provides a map for creating new cycles, marked by engagement and responsiveness.

Developed by Dr.Susan Johnson, EFT is receiving world-wide attention for its ability to create the safe haven and secure base that are emblematic of loving and durable relationships.

Participants in this unique educational experience will acquire valuable strategies to help couples define the problem as their cycle of interaction, rather than each other. You will gain expertise in helping clients share their deeper fears and needs with each other and learn to reach and respond.

Making extensive use of videotapes and experiential exercises, this workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to both see and practice the skills of EFT, learning to apply the premises and language of attachment to create change, even with  challenging clients.

This event is a collaboration between the Melbourne Community for EFT, The Australian Association for Family Therapy and the Bouverie Centre. Elana will be running other events in Melbourne from 13th to 15th of February. To discover more and to book, please check the events section of our website at
