2017 Chicago EFT Externship June 21 – 24

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 and techniques to guide couples from conflict and disengagement to lasting connection based on strong, secure bonds. Participants practice key interventions in supportive leader-led role play sessions. This training gives you the skills needed to immediately implement EFT 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 $20.
