ICEEFT certified training



Fundamentals of EFT

No knowledge of EFT required (Masters level training in Psychology, Social Work, Counselling or related field an asset). Participants will learn the theoretical underpinnings of EFT, as well as how to:

  • View marital distress from an attachment perspective

  • Assess couples’ suitability for EFT

  • Work through the 9 steps of EFT

  • Elicit and work with emotion as it occurs in sessions

  • Shape key new interaction and bonding events

  • Work through blocks in therapy

The format provides participants with presentations of theory and clinical techniques, opportunities to work through experiential skills building exercises, view and discuss therapy-in-action video recordings, discuss specific cases, and observe live interviews.
* Dependent on couple being referred by a participant and appropriate screening by the trainers.


Core Skills

Advanced Training in EFT

Core Skills training consists of small groups (12-16 people) learning the skills essential to the practice of EFT. Participants are required to have completed an EFT externship.

The training takes place in a small group with a combination of didactic and experiential learning, as well as live demonstration sessions. Participants are encouraged to bring their own case material for discussion and illustration purposes. Participants interested in working toward EFT certification must be willing to present their own work through audio/videotape presentation, as well as transcript. Presentation of your work through video/audio presentation and transcript is one of the requirements for EFT certification.

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS: Participants are expected to have taken the 4-day Externship in EFT prior to taking the Core Skills Training in EFT. It is suggested that participants have read, The Practice of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy: Creating Connection (Johnson, 2004).


One-on-One or Small Groups

Individual, pair, and group supervision are available by request. Drs. Campbell and Fairweather are registered Supervisors and Trainers with the International Centre for Excellence in EFT (ICEEFT). They offer face to face supervision, as well as long-distance supervision.

  • Identify specific interventions to help couples/families reprocess negative emotion and restructure negative interactions

  • Create powerful change events in therapy that foster a more secure bond between partners/family members

  • Address common impasses and difficult issues in marital/family therapy

Advanced Topics in EFT

Looking for a workshop or training opportunity that's not currently offered?

We all love living on Vancouver Island, and part of it's charm is the (relatively) small population as compared to major city centers. The downside is we have a hard time organizing a large enough group to do many types of training locally. If you are interesting in something specific, let us know! AND, if we can work together to get a large enough group, even better!

EFT externships and advanced core skills training are designed for mental health professionals and registrants will be required to declare their professional designation.
