Core Skills Advanced Training In EFT

Get the experience and supervision from different trainers and several supervisors!

Core Skills training consists of four, two-day trainings (12 hours each) that will focus on the core skills of each of the EFT steps/stages. The trainings will offer instruction, live case consultations, group supervision and experiential exercises as set forth by the International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). Participants are required to have completed an EFT externship. Core Skills training can be applied towards certification.

"I have just completed Core Skills with Debi Scimeca-Diaz and George Faller, who, along with their helpers Zoya Simakhodskaya, Benjamin Seaman, Judith Kellner, and Wendy Tomkiel, provided an extremely safe and encouraging environment for all of the participants to  risk using our EFT skills in role plays so that we could benefit from critiques by master trainers.  The expertise, warmth, and support of the team has helped bring my therapeutic approach to a far more effective level."   Carolee Kallmann, MA, LPC, LCADC

"The Core skills training has deepened my understanding of all of the steps in EFT and helped me feel a more solid foundation. The steps are explained clearly and the role plays are very effective in getting us to experience what our clients feel, and practice being there for them. I also liked the way the two day sessions were spaced out by several weeks. That gave us time to integrate the information and try on using it."  Carolyn McIntyre, LCSW
