EFFT Intensive Workshop: Therapeutic Apologies in Psychotherapy (ONLINE LIVE STREAM EVENT)

About this Event

November 12, 2020, 9 am - 4:30 pm ET (Convert to your Time Zone)

Therapeutic Apologies (TA) are one of the most powerful interventions used in Emotion-Focused Family Therapy, given their potential to transform emotional pain in the self and other.

The TA intervention can be in the context of individual, couple and other family-oriented therapies. It involves coaching clients to deliver a specifically constructed apology, rooted within a no-blame framework, to facilitate healing for both parties. Clients are also taught what not to do and how to handle difficult responses from the other. The use of TAs is not limited to situations in which there was an emotional injury; they can also be used to help lift the burden felt by those struggling with mental illness who are blaming themselves - or caregivers who are blaming themselves.

Benefits of TAs include:

  • Reduced shame and self-blame
  • Reduced parental self-blame
  • Increased feelings of worthiness and self esteem
  • Increased resilience; better health outcomes
  • Increased openness to receiving support/treatment
  • Decreased resistance to caregiver involvement
  • Healing of old wounds; improved relationships.

This workshop will provide a “deep dive” into the Therapeutic Apologies intervention. Participants will receive step-by-step instruction, scripts, and ample practice opportunities to equip them with the tools and confidence to effectively implement the intervention with clients immediately following the workshop.

You will receive:

  • Login details and instructions emailed in advance of the workshop
  • Downloadable handouts
  • Certificate of attendance upon successful completion of a brief online quiz (if desired)
  • Access to a recording of the workshop for a limited period of time after the workshop - so if you can’t join live, need to take a break or simply want to re-watch your favourite parts, we’ve got you covered!
