This presentation will introduce the Therapeutic Apology, a cornerstone of Emotion Focused Family Therapy (EFFT), as a targeted strategy for moving beyond “I’m sorry” as caregivers provide support to family members and supportive others of loved ones with eating disorders. An overview of the Therapeutic Apology will be provided, along with concrete ways to identify scenarios in which the Therapeutic Apology could be indicated. We will also look at ways to support caregivers to stay away from self-blame in delivering the Therapeutic Apology.
