Externships

Our externships are unique because we intentionally limit the number of attendees. We strive to create an intimate experience with personal videos of our in-session work, leader role-plays, and small group role-plays in which trained EFT therapists get involved with each group.

Our externships follow this format:

Seeing
(video/leader role plays)
Hearing
(didactic)
Doing
(small group exercises)

EFIT Training

Thirty years ago Prof Susan Johnson developed a therapeutic model known as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). Today, EFT is the gold standard for potent, proven couples intervention. But EFT has always had potential to help individual clients too.

Online Supervision Groups

The objective of this monthly group event is to provide a forum for all EFT practitioners who have completed at least the four-day externship to discuss their cases, learn more about topical issues, refine EFT skills, ask questions or raise issues, and get to know other EFT practitioners.

Individual Supervision

The Key Principles of EFT Clinical Supervision are:
A positive working alliance between the supervisor and supervisee is fostered because safety enhances learning.
Modelling is available: the supervisor actively demonstrates EFT interventions (e.g., demonstrates attachment language and non-verbal behaviours of EFT).
Observation of therapy sessions occurs or transcripts are examined. Role plays with feedback give an opportunity for rehearsal.
Feedback to the supervisee is clear, focused, supportive, and congruent with the supervisee’s stage of learning.
Specific elements are pointed out for the supervisee to improve or work on.
Written theory and techniques of the EFT model are referred to and taught in relation to practice (e.g., steps, stages, interventions, experiential and non-pathologizing approach).
