EFT will transform your work with couples and families

Core Skills is the next step in your couples training after completing an ICEEFT approved Externship.

You will be participating in small group study with lots of opportunity for experiential learning.  We will study together, do role plays, watch lots of video taped sessions and share the EFT journey. In a core skills series we will schedule 2 live sessions (pending availability) and each participant will have an opportunity to present his/her work to the group.

We will use didactic instruction, case presentations, role plays and video review to help you to become more intentional and focused with the EFT model.   In module one we focus on building relationship in the therapy, assessment and beginning to track the negative interactional pattern.  In module two we focus on working with and deescalating the negative cycle.  In module three, we deepen our work with withdrawers and beginning of stage two.  In module 4, we deepen our work with pursuers and stage two.

This training is appropriate for mental health professionals who have completed an ICEEFT approved Externship in EFT and are working with couples and families.  Each weekend is 12 contact hours of learning.  We will provide you a certificate of completion after completing all four weekends.  Please check with your licensing board for your particular continuing education requirements. CE available for an additional $35.
