EFT Cycle Tracking, De-Escalation & Repair Self-Study Mini-Series
Over time, all couples develop negative communication patterns that can leave partners feeling disconnected and misunderstood. These workshops draw from the wisdom of the EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) approach and will help you and your partner understand why even small arguments can escalate so quickly.
The 5-part series is currently available as a self-study program with the option to add private coaching sessions.
Part I - Introduction to Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples
Part II - Introduction to the Gottman Method Therapy for couples
Part III - EFT Negative Cycle Tracking (can be upgraded to a private cycle tracking session with Dr. Bordieri): This module will walk you and your partner through tracking your negative cycle. You will gain insight into the needs that drive your negative cycle and learn some initial strategies to escape these rigid patterns that keep you and your partner stuck in conflict and disconnection. This module is based on the EFT approach.
Part IV - Strategies for De-Escalating Conflict: This module draws heavily from EFT to help couples learn strategies to de-escalate their negative cycle as identified in Part I of the series. It also integrate strategies from the Gottman Method to counter destructive behaviors that distinguish relationship "masters” from “disasters.”
Part V - Revisiting & Repairing Conflict: This module draws from both the EFT approach and the Gottman Method to give you insights and tools for revisiting conflict and repairing with you partner.
These pre-recorded modules are part of the Core Relationship Skills for Couples: Workshop Series, which includes a total of 6 modules. Couples can upgrade this package to include these 3 live group workshops.
