FACING THE DRAGON TOGETHER: WORKING WITH TRAUMATIZED COUPLES  IN EMOTIONALLY FOCUSED THERAPY 

This relationship therapy training webinar presented by Dr Sue Johnson, author of Hold Me Tight,  will demonstrate the use of Emotion Focused Couple Therapy (EFT) with couples facing the echoes of trauma. EFT has been shown in outcome studies to significantly reduce the symptoms of traumatic stress as well as to help these couples, who often suffer from particularly dysregulated chaotic relationships move into a secure base of relationship satisfaction, trust and equilibrium. The refinements to EFT model that allow for effective intervention when partners are dealing with extreme negative cycles or interaction and symptoms such as numbing, rage, debilitating shame or intense vigilance for threat will be outlined. On-target couple interventions can create the ideal healing environment for traumatized partners whether such trauma arises from childhood abuse, violence and battle stress or medical problems.
