EFT Foundations Workshop: Building Bonds and Deepening Emotional Connection

Deepening Emotional Engagement of the Couple a la EFT

December 4, 2020

This is December’s online workshop on Emotionally Focused Therapy Foundations!

How do we create permanent change for a couple?  What does that look like?  How is vulnerability and existential fear  the key to deep bonding and connection?  How do we create a new perception of self, partner, and the relationship for a couple to sustain connection for the long haul?

EFT Foundations Workshop

There is so much to learn and master in the process of becoming proficient in the EFT model! These 2-hour workshops will methodically explain the core concepts of Emotionally Focused Therapy, in concept and in practice.

These workshops are open to:

  • those already trained in EFT looking to refine their understanding of the model
  • the greater mental health professional community, those curious about the model
  • Students! If you are a student, simply type N/A in the registration for license type and number.

December’s Foundation Workshop will focus on helping the couple to deepen their emotional engagement with each other as a way to heal wounds and build bonds.
