The final weekend of Core Skills focuses on the Pursuer Softening process, the culmination of Stage 2 and the lead-in to Stage 3. Once again, we’ll be working on steps 5, 6 & 7  as we address the heightening and expanding of emotion to orchestrate the vivid enactments that culminate in the Pursuer’s ‘softening reach’ and the re-engaged Withdrawer’s accepting and supportive response. We then wrap up with an overview of Stage 3, the consolidation and integration phase, when couples are supported to find new solutions to more pragmatic concerns and begin to create new narratives characterized by experiences of increased trust, security and engagement.

The Externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy is a 4-day intensive training in the theory, interventions and practice of EFT with couples. In addition to learning how attachment theory informs our understanding of couple distress, you will learn the steps to guide couples from conflict and disengagement to strong, secure bonds. Participants also practice key interventions in supportive leader-led role play sessions. This training gives you skills you can immediately implement in your couple work. Our goal is nothing less than to transform the way you work with couples.

28 CEU’s are available for Social Workers, Counselors, Psychologists and Marriage & Family Therapists. The charge for the CEU certificate is $25.
