This is an ABFT workshop presented by the Drexel ABFT Training Program. On day one, we will offer an overview of the model including theoretical principles and clinical strategies. Faculty will review how attachment theory, emotion regulation, and trauma resolution inform the delivery of this experiential treatment approach. We also review the goals and structure of the five treatment tasks that provide a road map for delivering this interpersonally focused psychotherapy effectively and rapidly. Enrollment for day one is unlimited (as permitted by space).
Teaching format on day one includes lecture and video examples. For those interested in more intensive training, days two and three provide a more in-depth look at the procedures and process involved in facilitating the therapy. The teaching format includes lecture, video tape review, case discussion, and role play. There is limited enrollment for these two days.
The full three-day workshop is the beginning of a two-year credentialing program for those interested in ongoing supervision. Commitment to continue is not required for participation.
