4-Day Hawai'i Virtual Externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy
Early Bird Registration Now Open
July 22-23 & 29-30, 2021
This official 4-Day Externship is endorsed by the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a short-term, structured and evidence-based approach to reduce couple distress and create more secure attachment bonds.
Through a multifaceted learning experience from lecture, videos, experiential exercises and live demonstration, participants will learn to see relationship distress from an attachment lens, recognize attachment and affect regulation strategies that maintain couple distress, facilitate reprocessing of underlying emotional responses and shape new bonding events.
Take the first step of your journey towards becoming an ICEEFT Certified EFT therapist. For more info on all of the requirements on how to become an ICEEFT Certified EFT therapist, click this link:
