The AZEFT Community is excited to present this workshop on working with addictions in the context of EFT.

This workshop is appropriate for mental health professionals and mental health students who practice couple therapy. The instructional level of this workshop is geared toward an intermediate level audience. The focus of the workshop is on the treatment of addiction using an attachment frame, and will be of interest to EFT therapists or therapists who use other models.
