Learn about Emotionally Focused Therapy, an evidence based approach with a clear road map and solid research base
Introduction to Emotionally Focused Therapy

Day 1 EFT for Individuals
and/or
Day 2 EFT for Couples

November 3 & 4, 2014
Calgary, Alberta


Discover Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) a short-term approach that applies attachment theory to understanding and helping individuals improve their emotional wellbeing and couples rebuild their relationship bond. Individual clients typically present with problematic mood states and feeling stuck in achieving personal goals in work, love and family life. Most typically there is an interpersonal focus inherent in their therapeutic work or personal blocks that have their origins in attachment experiences. When couples present for therapy, they are typically caught in patterns of conflict and disconnection that undermine the security of their relationship bond.

This presentation provides an introduction to using EFT, devoting one day to working with individuals and one day to couples. Throughout both days participants can expect illustrative case examples, video excerpts, and experiential exercises. Participants can choose to attend one or both days.

Presented by EFT Certified Trainer

Veronica Kallos-Lilly, Ph.D.,R.Psych, who is a highly regarded trainer for mental health professionals and graduate students. She has practiced EFT for over 20 years and has presented her work at conferences & in professional journals. Known for her clinical clarity and warm interpersonal style, Veronica has been praised by Dr. Sue Johnson as “an exceptionally skilled couple’s therapist, a Master Clinician, with an excellent knowledge of theory and practice of EFT.”

INTENSIVE TRAINING IN PROLONGED EXPOSURE THERAPY FOR PTSD
November 13-16, 2014, Calgary, AB
Facilitator: Dr. David Yusko, The Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety, Philadelphia, PA

This is an intensive, 4-day workshop focusing on the application of Prolonged Exposure for the treatment of PTSD with survivors of trauma. The workshop begins with a review of evidence supporting the use of Prolonged Exposure with trauma survivors. The basic components of Prolonged Exposure are then reviewed, including those that are completed in-session as well as those completed between therapy sessions. Upon completion of a review of the components of Prolonged Exposure, focus will shift to the practical application of interventions, as well as a consideration of how to flexibly apply therapeutic procedures based on the client’s response to exposure.

Detailed case vignettes demonstrating the application of Prolonged Exposure with trauma survivors will be presented. This will include viewing of videotaped demonstrations of experts in Prolonged Exposure working with real-life trauma survivors. Workshop participants will also be provided supervised opportunity to practice application of treatment during the workshop and will be provided feedback regarding progress. Treatment manuals and supporting documentation to be used in therapy will also be provided.

This is an advanced workshop for clinicians interested in advancing their skill working with survivors of trauma. As such, this workshop will apply best to clinicians who may have worked with trauma survivors in the past, and who have some understanding of the impact of trauma and its clinical presentation.

The workshop is delivered at a cost of $1200 per person. The fee includes:
• The cost of the workshop,
• A therapist guide to PE: “Prolonged Exposure Therapy for PTSD: Emotional Processing of Traumatic Experiences” (Foa, Hembree, & Rothbaum, 2007),
• A patient workbook for PE: “Reclaiming Your Life from a Traumatic Experience: Workbook” (Rothbaum, Foa, & Hembree, 2007), published by Oxford University Press
• A workshop binder that includes all handouts and supporting materials

Please contact Dr. Megan McElheran, at megan.mcelheran@wgmpsych.com or 403-700-5419 with questions.
