Externship in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT)

Four Day Externship in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy with Sue Johnson, EdD

Through a combination of lecture, videotape, observation of live interviews and exercises, participants will learn to identify the basic stages and steps of Emotionally Focused Therapy and to help couples recognize and deescalate problematic cycles of interaction.  Participants will also learn to help couples create or restore the emotional bond between them once the negative cycle, and the attachment needs that drive it, has been understood.
