Michael is a licensed psychotherapist in Atlanta Georgia with over 30 years of clinical experience. He is an ICEEFT (International Center of Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy) certified supervisor and trainer in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT), and is the founder and director of the Atlanta Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy. He is also a partner at Pine River Psychotherapy Associates, a highly respected and visionary private practice in Atlanta.
Psychotherapy with couples is both multi-layered and complex, often challenging the most skilled of therapists. In this fast-paced, technology-driven era that we live in, where true connection is often at a premium, substance use has escalated to epidemic proportions. It is not uncommon for couple’s therapists to be confronted with the additional challenge of contending with a pernicious “third-party” that lurks within the shadows of distressed relationships: addiction. Although we have a superb modality, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), to help couples find their way to genuine, loving communion with one another, addictions present very significant obstacles to effectively working with couples that seek our services. In this two-day experiential training, we will explore specific, and necessary ways to tailor EFT skills and interventions in order to better address the impact that addiction has on the couple therapy process.
This interactive workshop will provide a safe environment, using role-plays, video clip demonstrations and didactic material for clinical discussion and personal exploration.
