EFT with ADHD couples

ADHD IN COUPLES, THROUGH THE ATTACHMENT LENS

The ICEEFT-recognized masterclass « ADHD through the attachment filter » focuses on how to navigate ADHD impacted couples through EFT to help them create connection and safety. In this 12 hour training, you’ll learn how to recognize and lead the tango with these couples. We’ll work with video clips of standard EFT interventions. The case where the therapist has ADHD will also be examined.
