ADVANCED CAREGIVER WORKSHOP FOR GENERAL MENTAL HEALTH with Dawn Esther Allen-Fogarty / Assisted by Jenna Fletcher

Inspired by Emotion-Focused Family Therapy – and with a dose of humour - this 2 day workshop will introduce practical skills to support your child's recovery from general mental issues to an eating disorder.

Iam Yoga Downtown (Toronto)

Saturday Oct 27th 8:30am-4:30pm

Sunday Oct 28th 9:00am-4:30pm

$400 + HST

Parents and caregivers will be taught specific techniques to respond to strong emotional reactions, including expressions of anger, hopelessness, and silence. Not sure how to respond to “I am a loser”, “I’m stupid,” or “I feel fat” in a way that is loving and productive? We will cover that too.

Emotion Focused Family Therapy

Based on the healing power of connection. The skills learned in Emotion Focused Family Therapy can benefit any parent / caregiver –child relationship as it reinforces the connection between key adults in their life and leading the repair of relationship injuries if applicable.

Influenced by the theory and science of interpersonal neurobiology, the essence of Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) is to support caregivers to increase their role in their loved one’s recovery from mental health issues. In fact, the EFFT clinician believes that it is most therapeutically worthwhile to empower parents to help their children, regardless of age, given that they are “wired” together. Thus, their main responsibility is to support parents to become an active agent of healing. They do so by supporting parents and alternate caregivers to increase their involvement in: (1) interrupting symptoms and supporting health-focused behaviors, (2) helping their child to process overt and underlying emotions that may be fueling problematic thoughts and symptoms, and (3) leading the repair of relational injuries if applicable.
