Thank you to UNC Greensboro’s Department of Counseling and Educational Development for its ongoing support to the Carolina Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy, beginning in 2010! In particular I want to thank Dr. J Scott Young, department chair who generously supports us with use of classroom space, and Dr. Keith Mobeley who allows us to use the clinic space for “Iive” EFT consultation sessions. Special recognition goes to Dr. Craig Cashwell, who has offered huge support and encouragement, many times in-person, for us to offer many many EFT training sessions! Dr. Cashwell was the first and strongest supporter in getting the Carolina Center for EFT established in 2010 and has been an avid supporter ever since.
I am also especially honoured that the provost of UNCG has recently granted me an adjunct faculty appointment in the Counselling and Educational Development Department. This occurred at the kind instigation of Dr. Young, in response to the above mentioned ways I have been working with the department to offer EFT trainings. In making the request to the provost, the dean wrote, “The appointment will be beneficial to not only the Counseling and Education Department, but also to the entire University, as we look to increase collaborations and research pursuits as well.”
It is a tremendous privilege to have UNCG participants at each training event. They have been clearly talented and enthused about how the training has enriched their sense of professional competence, and many are helping to broaden the exposure of EFT in the Carolinas. As a representative of the International Centre for Excellence in EFT, and the director of the Carolina Center for EFT, it is considered a great honour and opportunity to collaborate with the Department of Counseling and Educational Development.
Join us in celebrating the increased recognition of EFT and our local EFT training!
