2016 Chicago Externship June 15-18, 2016 Sign up...

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 $20.

Accommodations    Loyola has set aside some nicely furnished graduate school dorm/apartments directly across from Corboy and a link to reserve a room can be found here.

Chicago Core Skills Series II/Session 4 – July 15 & 16, 2016 Sign up...

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.

Schedule: All sessions meet Friday 1:00 – 6:30 and Saturday 9:00 – 4:30. CEU’s are available at no charge for participants completing the series. Reduced rate parking is available nearby.

EFT Bootcamp Sign up...

The EFT Certification Bootcamp was developed by Elana Katz, LCSW, LMFT, Certified EFT Supervisor & Trainer, to support therapists in the journey towards certification.  The target audience is therapists who have taken at least the Externship, preferably Core Skills. Attendees will need to have had enough exposure to the model to get a sense of what is working for them and where they are getting stuck. It doesn’t substitute for required EFT trainings, but rather is an additional resource.
The first part of the workshop will outline the specifics of the certification process. Focus will be on what goes into the application and identifying the skills that need to be demonstrated.
In the second part, Elena will break down the process of development as an EFT therapist using evocative videos, journaling, mutually supportive discussions and didactic exercises.
EFT Certification Bootcamp aims to reduce therapist anxiety and increase competency as participants gain a deeper sense of themselves and more familiarity with the nuts and bolts of applying for certification.

Elana Katz, LCSW, is a senior faculty member at the Ackerman Institute for the Family. She has presented nationally and internationally, including annual meetings of the American Family Therapy Academy, AAMFT, and the Psychotherapy Networker. One of the first therapists in New York to become certified in EFT, she has published a number of articles and has been quoted by the New York Times, the Associated Press, and other media outlets, including National Public Radio.
