Join us in taking the first step towards training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples
Are you seeking to enhance your therapy skills in the field of relationship therapy using an empirically validated method that offers effective support to couples?
Are you skilled in relationship therapy but seek a fresh approach that is the new science of love enabling you to be more successful with couples? If yes, then Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an effective solution.
Pioneered by Dr. Susan Johnson, EFT for couples is a therapy that is rigorously researched based upon a science of adult love and attachment. EFT gives the therapist a clear guide through the confusing drama of couple conflict and distress. It recognises that marital discord arises from the threat of adult needs for safety, security and closeness in intimate relationships. The EFT change process is mapped into a systematic sequence and framework that restructures interactional patterns that bring about marital conflict. This structure reliably provides couples with a safe and effective path for long term relational healing. EFT is widely used and popular in Canada, the USA, Europe, the UK and now Ireland.
Ireland’s EFT Community is building beautifully. It has a network of therapists who recognise the value of like minded support from one another in the challenging task of couples’ therapy so why not tap into this network and avail of the EFT Externship training® which takes place from Friday 28th April to Monday 1st May 2017.
This is an invaluable opportunity to avail of this dynamic and effective training. The EFT Externship
training is suitable for professional therapists and counsellors new to couples’ therapy and for those who are experienced in this field.
