This is a beginning-level externship in the highly acclaimed Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for therapists in the Inland Northwest community. This 4-day training event is designed to help therapists have an immersive, didactic and experiential conceptualization of the EFT model. There will be lecture, role plays, handouts, group interactions and demonstrations with a live couple to help the participant understand and be able to apply the principles of EFT in their own practice of couple therapy.
