The Externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is the basic four-day training in EFT and a pre-requisite for all other trainings. It includes an overview of all aspects of the model including steps and stages, interventions, adult attachment theory, and application of EFT with couples. The Externship material is taught with a variety of teaching methods including lecture, interactive discussions, role plays, video demonstrations.  The course includes observation of live, unscripted therapy sessions with real couples, presentations of attachment theory and clinical techniques, skills training exercises, and discussion of specific clinical material.

What Is EFT?

Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT) is based on a comprehensive theory of adult love and attachment, as well as a process for healing distressed relationships. It recognizes that relationship distress results from a perceived threat to basic adult needs for safety, security, and closeness in intimate relationships. This experiential/systemic therapy focuses on helping partners restructure the emotional responses that maintain their negative interaction patterns. Though a series of nine steps, the therapist leads the couple away from conflict deadlock into new bonding interactions.  A substantial body of research now exists on the effectiveness of EFT, showing large treatment effect sizes and stable results over time with many different kinds of couples.

Who Should Attend?

The Externship is intended for mental health professionals who counsel couples including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, licensed professional counselors, clergy, and students training in these professions.

By attending, participants will:

  • Obtain a clear understanding of the basic experiential and systemic concepts of an “Emotionally Focused” approach to couples therapy.

  • Develop skills in helping partners reprocess the emotional responses that maintain relational distress.

  • Develop skills in helping partners shape new interaction patterns and bonding events.

  • Develop skills to overcome therapeutic impasses with couples.

  • Delineate the steps and stages of the model, interventions most commonly used, and methods to use with couples’ underlying interactional patterns.
