This program will explore ethical and professional aspects of boundaries and borders within the psychotherapeutic context. The program will review standards in the CPA and APA Ethics Codes that are relevant to boundaries and borders in psychotherapy, and then will explore why these concepts are so deeply embedded in our ethical understanding of the psychotherapeutic process. This exploration will address how borders and boundaries take shape in a relational context where multiple dimensions of self-identity are at play, such as age, gender, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, disability and religion.

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
Day 2 EFT for Couples
November 3 & 4, 2014
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.”
