in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy 

This is the first step in becoming a Certified EFT Therapist. 

Through a combination of lecture, videotape, observation of live interviews and exercises, participants will learn the basic concepts and theory of Emotionally Focused Therapy; identify the stages and steps of treatment; begin to formulate problematic cycles of interaction; and help couples end cycles of blame and disengagement so that they can restore and deepen the emotional bond between them. Sue Johnson's second edition of The Practice of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy: Creating Connections is recommended reading for all participants. Experienced EFT supervisors will be available to assist small group learning and practice.

EFT externships and advanced core skills training are designed for mental health professionals and registrants will be required to declare their professional designation. NYCEFT-supported externships are offered in New York City and Connecticut (see below).
