Workshop description

Do you sometimes struggle to keep the therapeutic process of Stage 2 focused and on track?
Do you ever find yourself wondering, “Have I gone ‘deep enough’ in Stage Two?”
Are you ever curious how your own attachment wounds might “show up” in your Stage 2 work with clients?

Stage 2 is a powerfully transformative part of the EFT model in which couples shift their insecure dance into a secure attachment bond. It is vulnerable and tender, touching the hearts of couples and therapists alike.

We see beautiful bonding moments on the training tapes. But somehow in practice it seems more difficult than it looks, to navigate the two change events of withdrawer engagement and pursuer softening. You are not alone if you feel lost and discouraged at times.

Throughout this workshop, we will be watching video clips, engaging in skills building exercises, and exploring how to remain emotionally present and curious when encountering road blocks along the way.

Together we will create a safe and mutually supportive atmosphere in which you can engage, take risks, and grow professionally. We invite you to join us on this profound and enriching journey.

We will include time for some participants to present and receive feedback on their stage 2 cases.

Learning Goals and Objectives

Following this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Delineate the key steps of the withdrawer engagement and pursuer softening process so that you become familiar with the terrain and increase your confidence in guiding your clients
  • Discover how to delve deeply into the emotional world of pursuers and withdrawers and tailor your interventions differently to their unique fears and vulnerabilities
  • Explore some of your own blocks that can emerge in this intensely emotional work
