Emotion Focused Skills Training (EFST) is a program designed to support parents by empowering them as active, primary agents in guiding their loved ones through emotional, behavioral or relational challenges, as well as with struggles in everyday living such as eating disorders, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, physical or educational challenges. The program is an emotion-processing, skills-based approach that gives parents practical tools that they can implement immediately in their family.
