De helende kracht van emoties

Masterclass Transdiagnostic Emotion-Focused Therapy

Het nieuwe boek ‘Transdiagnostic Emotion-Focused Therapy’ van Laco Timulak heeft ons gestimuleerd Laco Timulak uit te nodigen voor een masterclass.
We hebben hem bereid gevonden om in november 2022 naar Nederland te komen voor een intensieve tweedaagse masterclass. We nodigen je hierbij uit om deze masterclass bij te wonen.
We hopen je enthousiast te hebben gemaakt !

This two-day Masterclass will offer a combination of didactic teaching, experiential exercises, videos and discussion.

Recent years have seen the emergence of transdiagnostic psychothera-peutic treatments, typically targeting depression, anxiety and related disorders. The rationale for developing transdiagnostic protocols is based on a number of factors; shared etiology and maintenance mechanisms, high co-morbidity, hypothesising that discrete disorders may be underpinned by common psychological vulnerabilities, and the burden currently placed on clinicians to master multiple disorder-specific interventions.

This Masterclass will present a transdiagnostic model of Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), which combines modular (targeting specific clusters of symptoms) and shared mechanisms (targeting underlying vulnerability) approaches to the treatment of depression, anxiety and related disorders such as obsessive-compulsive and trauma/stressor related disorders.

This Masterclass will illustrate how EFT addresses problematic symptoms but primarily focuses on transforming emotion vulnerability, or Core Pain, by activating adaptive emotional responses, such as compassion and protective anger, to embedded unmet needs.
