Four Day Externship in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy- September 26-29, 2018
with EFT trainer Jill Fischer, LICSW

The Externship in EFT is the basic four-day training in Emotionally Focused Therapy and a pre-requisite for all other training as well as for certification. It includes an overview of all aspects of the model including steps and stages, interventions, adult attachment theory, and application of EFT with couples and families. The Externship material is taught using lecture, interactive discussions, role plays, video demonstrations and live session consultations.

The objectives for this training are for participants to learn how to view relationship distress from an attachment perspective, help partners reprocess the emotional experiences that led to their relationship distress, help couples create new bonding events, and work with clinical impasses.
