The 4-Day Externship is the first step towards EFT certification. Pre-requisite is to read The Practice of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy: Creating Connection, 2nd ed., Brunner-Routledge.
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 didactic presentations of theory, techniques and skills, video recordings of EFT with couples, observation of live sessions, and discussion of specific cases and clinical issues. Training exercises allow participants to explore EFT techniques and interventions in a supportive environment.
