Seven RMHC Students Receive Workshop Scholarships

Congratulations to students Nineska Del Rosario, Casey Fox, Shanda Holmes, Morgan Lang, Marah McAleer, Esha Shrestha, and Trine Garlett in the Rehabilitation & Mental Health Counseling (RMHC) program who were awarded scholarships to attend the upcoming 2 day workshop Facing The Dragon Together: EFT with Traumatized Couple with Dr. Sue Johnson. RMHC is co-sponsoring the May 13 & 14th workshop in Tampa with National Marriage Seminars. It will offer a mixture of didactic presentations, case discussion, viewing and discussion of clinical training tapes and experiential exercises.

Dr. Johnson, a leading innovator in the field of couple therapy, is the primary developer of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), which has demonstrated its effectiveness in over 25 years of peer-reviewed clinical research. Students attending the workshop will gain a greater understanding of the use of EFT, known to significantly reduce the symptoms of traumatic stress as well as to help these couples, who often suffer from particularly dysregulated chaotic relationships, move into a secure base of relationship satisfaction, trust and equilibrium. Read more...
