The Counselling Unit at the University of Strathclyde is offering further training in Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) for counsellors and psychotherapists (Diploma level or above) who have completed Level One training in EFT.  This series follows a schedule of three two-day Friday-Saturday sessions spread over the 2015-16 academic year, beginning in November, to allow participants to begin to implement EFT in their client work in the course of the training.  The format will be a mixture of brief lectures, videos or demonstrations, experiential practice exercises in small groups, supervision of cases seen by course members, and discussion.

The specific topics to be covered will feature material not covered in the Level 1 course, including
·      Therapist experiential response modes
·      EFT client case formulation and modes of engagement
·      The EFT adaption of Focusing for unclear feelings
·      Relational Dialogue for Alliance difficulties
·      Creation of Meaning for meaning protests
·      Narrative retelling of difficult or traumatic experiences

In addition, different forms of Chairwork will be particularly emphasized:
·   Two chair conflict split work for: self-criticism, self-interruption, and self-damaging activities
·      Empty chair work for unfinished business
·      Compassionate Self-soothing for painful self states

·      Enrolment is set for a minimum of 15, with variable staffing to accommodate up to 30. 
  • The course could be taken for continuing professional education credit, or at part of the restructured MSc Counselling course at Strathclyde (if you already have a PGDip in Person-Centred or humanistic counselling).
