We are pleased to announce that we will be offering Level 1 Emotion Focused Therapy Training on 28-31 May at the Salomons Institute for Applied Psychology in Tunbridge Wells led by Robert Elliott. This offers an exciting opportunity for delegates to learn directly from one of the developers of this psychotherapeutic approach.
This intensive four-day training provides therapists with the skills they need to work more directly with emotions in psychotherapy. It covers major principles of emotional change in psychotherapy: awareness, expression, regulation, reflection, transformation, and corrective emotional experience. The training is experiential working on personal material, including brief lectures, video demonstrations, live modelling, case discussions and extensive supervised practice using your own experiences.
The cost is £800 for the 4 days (Early Bird rate of £750 for bookings made before 28 February)
