Training in EFT
EFT integrates the cutting edge science of adult attachment and bonding with a humanistic and systemic approach to therapy. A growing body of research documents its effectiveness - 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements. You can learn more about the effectiveness of and research supporting EFT on the International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT) website.
The first step to becoming an Emotionally Focused Therapist is to attend a 4-day Externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy. This initial training event is a pre-requisite for most other EFT trainings and the first step toward certification in EFT. The Externship provides an overview of Emotionally Focused Therapy including the stages and steps of the model, adult attachment theory, and EFT interventions. Sue Johnson, the founder of EFT, offers more info below.
