The role of Intergenerationally Transmitted Inner Voices: focusing on attachment and emotion in family therapy

Invited by Psiris, official home of Emotionally Focused Therapy in Romania, Kyriaki Polychroni, certified EFT trainer, supervisor and therapist arrives in Bucharest to deliver a workshop for family therapists. More about her, you can read here.

In this workshop Kyriaki offers mental health practitioners an experience with an emotionally focused, attachment oriented approach to family therapy that works with intergenerationally transmitted inner voices. She will introduce participants to the concept of “Cultural Chronos” – a concept that views patterns of couple and family relating within the context of rapid sociocultural change and explores the difficulties that subsequently evolve and contribute to relational distress.

By way of active participation in specifically devised experiential tasks/processes and, through the simulation of a specific family case example and its couple’s relationship, workshop members will embark on a group journey illustrating the crucial importance of the EFT therapist opening up safe space where partners’ multiple and diverse inner voices can emerge and their underlying emotions can be accessed and expressed in therapy.

This approach has been shown to be extremely helpful to therapists especially when working with more traditional couples, mixed marriages, other cultures, etc. Implications for applying this technique in EFT training with the aim of facilitating the development of the self of the therapist will be discussed. 

The workshop is experiential throughout with Kyriaki working very closely also on the group dynamics that emerge in the process. Prior EFT training is an advantage, but not a condition in order to attend this workshop.
