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.
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.
Additional Training and workshops
One or Two Day Introductory Workshops
Workshops are available as an introduction to EFT and can be specifically tailored to meet the needs of your organization, educational institution, or practice setting.
They are designed to help participants:
Understand marital/family distress from an attachment perspective
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
Deal with specific populations/problems such as depression, trauma, grief, and/or chronic illness
For Experienced EFT Therapists
Drs. Campbell & Fairweather provide workshops, speak at seminars and provide training in advanced EFT topics around the globe. A full list of what's coming up is located at the top of this page under Current Opportunities.
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.
