Attachment Issues and Emotionally Focused Therapy
by Lisa A. Ruderman, LMFT
and LuAnn Ahrens, LMFT


Next meeting - Friday, March 31, 2017 from 12:00 to 2:00 PM:  

 The Southwest Riverside County CAMFT Chapter is honored to have as speakers Lisa A. Ruderman, LMFT, and Lu Ann Ahrens, LMFT.   Lisa and Lu Ann are certified EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) trainers and therapists in private practice.   They will be presenting to our chapter on Attachment issues and EFT - a unique, short-term approach to therapy with an attachment-based outlook.  This highly successful method (based upon the research of John Bowlby over 50 years ago,) is credited with the study that discovered higher intelligence animals have an inherent need to feel a sense of support and attachment.  Most of us are familiar with helping our clients come to terms with attachment issues and parenting, but we may not realize the immense value of attachment problems in other loving relationships, such as marriage.  Lisa and Lu Ann will discuss how current research demonstrates that clinicians using EFT training can help in over 75 percent of cases where couples are lacking a healthy connection in their relationship.     

Join us on Friday and learn how utilizing EFT can effectively change these relationships, and how to help your clients in their journey toward recovery and healing, using EFT interventions.

            Earn two CEUs along the way!
