This book introduces emotion focused family therapy (EFFT) as an evidence-based intervention for children through the integration of parent trauma treatment and emotion-focused techniques. A team of expert authors, including the founders of EFT and EFFT, contribute to the chapters, in which recent findings from longitudinal clinical trials are woven into a rich and deeply presented overview of using EFFT practically with clients. This immensely practical book also provides illustrative case studies, intervention strategies, and do’s and don’ts at the end of each chapter.
