Coming up in March
 Introduction to Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) with Dr. Adèle Lafrance
on March 19, 2019
Adèle Lafrance, Ph.D., C.Psych.,
is Co-developer of EFFT, a clinical psychologist, an associate professor at Laurentian University and a supervising/consulting psychologist for a number of mental health agencies
in Canada and abroad.
On March 19, 2019, we are pleased to welcome Dr. Adèle Lafrance,
to present her introductory workshop on Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT)The essence of EFFT is to increase the positive role of caregivers in their child's emotional health and wellness. The clinician's role is to support parents and caregivers to increase their involvement in specific ways included in the four main domains of behavior coaching, emotion coaching, relationship repair and fears and obstacles.

Using the EFFT model this workshop will cover the specific modules designed for clinicians in applying skills for supporting caregivers to identify, understand, and transform "emotion blocks" that lead to therapy-interfering attitudes, or behaviors that can come into play throughout the course of treatment. These “interferences” can create challenges in treatment for the most experienced clinicians. Dr. Lafrance will also cover the EFFT module for clinician and team challenges as well, including how to identify markers of emotional processes underlying problematic patterns of caregiving and the skills needed to work through potential clinician blocks to implementation.
