In this episode of Vital Psychedelic Conversations, Kyle Buller interviews clinical psychologist, author, researcher, and developer of Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT): Dr. Adele Lafrance. EFFT involves teaching family and significant others emotion-processing and behavioral support skills, how to make therapeutic apologies, how to not react in a knee-jerk way, and how to find problematic caregiving problems where families accommodate for mental health issues (and therefore perpetuate them). She also discusses the idea of healthy anger; the Hoffman Process; emotion coaching; the power of validation; similarities between EFFT and Internal Family Systems; rolling with resistance; tips to incorporate family into therapy more; the concept of a shame hangover and checking in on “tomorrow you”; and that even with all the preparation in the world, there’s no way to adequately prepare someone for the vast array of possibilities within (and after) a psychedelic experience.
