The Unique 2021 Carolina EFT Externship
Emotionally Focused Therapy is a short-term, structured and tested approach to reduce stress in adult love relationships, and create more secure attachment bonds. As one of the best-validated and most effective approaches to couples therapy, research shows 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements.
An Externship includes presentations of theory, clinical techniques and skills, training exercises, video recordings, observation of live interviews and discussion of specific cases and clinical issues.
Equity rates available.
Presenting is Lorrie Brubacher, Founding Director of the Carolina Center for EFT. A certified trainer with the International Centre for Excellence in EFT (ICEEFT), she has been an individual, couple and family therapist since 1989. An adjunct at University of North Carolina, Greensboro, Lorrie trains internationally and publishes on the topic of EFT, and EFIT specifically. She co-developed EFT’s first inter-active video training program on the EFT Attachment Injury Resolution Model and has many EFT couple and individual training videos available at at http://steppingintoeft.com.

Summary of Training Events for EFT Certification as Set Out by ICEEFT
Diversity/Inclusion scholarships are being offered as a statement that BLACK LIVES MATTER! We want to address the unconscious, systemic racism that has resulted in a lack of diversity in EFT training. The equity rate is designed to encourage participation from people from underrepresented groups, whose presence will enrich the training experience for everyone. If you can benefit from the equity rate pricing and identify with one of the following categories, please come and participate in the upcoming EFT training course. The categories are: 1) Those who identify with an underrepresented group such as, but not excluded to, Black Therapists and 2) those who work with historically marginalized communities.
The equity pricing is available based on your need, and an application is not required.
If you have any questions, please contact Steve Wampler.
