SO excited to offer this training in St. Louis! This training is endorsed by award-winning model originator, Dr. Susan Johnson and will be presented by ICEEFT Certified Trainer, Debi Scimeca-Diaz. Couples' Therapy Creator Sue JohnsonClick Here for details about the training directly from Sue.

We expect this training to sell out again. To guarantee your spot please register early, space is limited. This 4-day training is an official Emotionally Focused Therapy Externship.


Here’s what to Expect.

This is an official Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) training; what we also call an EFT Externship. Dr. Sue Johnson, model originator, and best selling author, endorses this Externship. Attending this Externship is the first step to being listed on the ICEEFT website, where clients go to find trained EFT therapists. It is also a step towards becoming a Certified EFT Therapist. 

In this Externship, you will learn how to:

  • See marital distress from an attachment perspective
  • Help partners reprocess the emotional responses that maintain relationship distress
  • Shape key new interactions and bonding events
  • Overcome therapeutic impasses

This four-day training provides an in-depth overview of the EFT model. Didactic presentations, case examples, demonstration videos, small group exercises and discussions will provide participants with an engaging learning experience. Training occurs in a unique co-created learning community.  Role-play work facilitated by trainers and experienced EFT clinicians including Certified EFT Therapists and Supervisor(s).

Here’s what NOT to Expect.

What this Training isn’t:  Four days of dry powerpoint presentations! This is not your ordinary training. This training weaves together didactic presentations, demonstration of the model through videos of the EFT masters, live session(s) of couples at the training itself, small group activities, role-plays and a vibrant community learning.

Professionals who attended last time said:

“I really liked seeing the LIVE couple demonstration, it’s a tremendous application of theory through EFT – it really works, because I saw it work.”

“Debi was great fun and brought a sense of life and excitement to the entire experience. The relationships and encouragement were the highlights of the training for me.”

“The facilitators were wonderful, energetic and very knowledgeable. It was also very helpful to see the actual sessions with real couples.”

“LOVED it! Can’t wait to practice it! Debi was amazing — felt she was understanding.”

“Content is really well balanced between learning and experimenting. A well run workshop, thank you.”

“The training was very beneficial because I’ve never experienced EFT and want any information that will help me be more effective.”

“Debi is the best teacher EVER – clear, concise, supportive (and I’ve been to Gottman 2x, Hendrix 2x and even Sue herself)

“Loved this! Thank you! Big take away is tying myself to the the mast of attachment.”

“When the topic and training is top caliber and value is extensive then I will find a way to attend, thank you.”

“This was absolutely amazing! Very grateful.”

Transform the Way You Work with Couples, Families & Individuals.

Attachment Science provides the platform for this EBP intervention. And as an EBP, EFT has substantial empirical validation. Arguably, EFT is the most extent, effective, empirically validated couples counseling out there.  EFT gives us a map of what goes wrong in intimate relationships and how to make them right. This Video offers a demonstration of some of the Attachment Science that defines EFT. 

We expect this training to sell out again. Please consider registering early.
