We are delighted to welcome Ladislav Timulak to the Emotion-Focused Therapy Institute at Salomons in May 2020 to deliver an intensive 4-day workshop in Level 2 Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT). 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 and the opportunity to explore issues that have arisen in clinical practice.
This workshop provides participants with more in-depth skill training beyond the introductory Level 1 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.
