Events Bulletin

“I have already seen the fruit of last week's training. I took EFT for couples in grad school and it was good, but I hadn't seen any couples at that point. So, my couples work was loosely "EFT" yet after last week it is actually EFT (or at least closer). I had a session on Friday that went incredibly well as I was able to slow things down and help the couple engage in enactments. It went deep quick, in ways in which I haven't experienced previously. So thank you again for a great training.”

MORE INFORMATION ON:

Externship in the Fundamentals

  • Prerequisite:  Graduate degree in counselling-related field, or nearing completion

This four day training provides an in-depth overview of the EFT model. Didactic presentations, case examples and demonstration videos, small group exercises and discussions will provide participants with an engaging learning experience. A further highlight is a live on-site therapy session by one of the trainers (dependent on a referral of a suitable couple by participants).

Participants will learn the theoretical underpinnings of Emotionally Focused Therapy, as well as how to:

  • Assess couples’ suitability for EFT
  • Work through the 9 steps of EFT
  • Elicit and work with emotion as it occurs in the sessions
  • Work through blocks in therapy
  • Develop specific interventions to help couples reprocess negative affect and foster a more secure bond

Fee:  $925.00 
Included in the fee is a $40 manual and collection of journal articles from the International Centre for Excellence in EFT (ICEEFT).

 

Core Skills Training

  • Prerequisite:  EFT Externship attended in person

In this small group experience, participants will have the opportunity to share their work throughout the training, with the focus on developing a deeper clinical understanding of the EFT model and the related skills.  Through observing and discussing the work of the facilitators and group members, and with the use of role plays, the three stages and nine steps are covered in detail.  The tone of the group is one of safety and supportiveness, to optimize learning.

Participants will learn to:

  • Use an attachment framework
  • Track and deepen emotion in the here and now
  • Create bonding events
  • Practice the interventions that create change in EFT

Therapists must have an active caseload of couples and be prepared to share their work at least once, in the preferred video format but audio format would be acceptable in certain situations.

Group size is limited to 12.

Fee:  $1700.00

EFT Externships and Advanced Core Skills trainings are designed for mental health professionals and trainees. Participants are required to note their professional affiliation on registration.
