Using "Love Sense" and Science to Shape Megawatt Couples Interventions

Sue Johnson, EdD
presented by Leading Edge Seminars, Inc

Time: 9:00 am to 4:30 pm
Location: YWCA Elm Centre, 87 Elm Street, Toronto

Leading Edge Seminars is pleased to offer you the chance to once again learn about Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT) from its leading proponent and one of its main creators, Sue Johnson. EFT offers a unique perspective on how to use the power of emotion and the science of adult attachment to create significant, lasting change in couples relationships. EFT demonstrates excellent outcomes with many different kinds of couples, including those facing trauma and depression. This workshop will cover the key elements of EFT practice. You will learn how to work with key change events and specific interventions designed to undo the vicious cycle of toxic dynamics in couples. Interventions will be illustrated with video and transcripts. Exercises will be offered for play and practice.

Within the EFT model, attachment theory will help you tune into the “neural duet”, the life-and-death drama that defines a distressed relationship, and help you restructure pivotal moments so that partners can move from isolation and frustration into a felt sense of security and lasting satisfaction. Issues such as forgiveness after attachment injuries such as affairs will also be addressed.

This presentation will combine cutting-edge theory, research, and clinical data into a 21st-century vision of couples therapy and education.

Critical Acclaim for Sue Johnson’s newest book Love Sense from The New York Times Sunday Book Review:
"Attachment lives deep in primordial pathways in the brain. And Johnson’s impressive work at commandeering this brain system to rehabilitate failing partnerships is an important contribution to those lost in the thicket of unhappy pair-bonding." — Dr. Helen Fisher.

You will learn —

To explore the phenomenon of marital distress in an attachment context
The basics of EFT practice and the steps of change
EFT interventions to help partners break out of gridlocked behavioural patterns caused by insecure attachment
How to adapt EFT for different kinds of partners and relationships
About the process of forgiveness in EFT
