About the Event
Innovative and inspiring, this 4-day Externship provides you with an in-depth and practical introduction to the practice of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). EFT remains a leading empirically supported treatment of couple distress.
The Created for Connection Externship is designed to prepare therapists to reach couples who value a faith sensitive approach to couple therapy. The spiritual integration taught in this training is based on the key insights found in Dr. Sue Johnson and Kenny Sanderfer’s recent book Created for Connection, and provides a cultural competency to integrate the client(s)’ faith in the EFT process while upholding ethical standards.
This unique training experience brings together four days of practical demonstrations, experiential exercises and dynamic presentations walking you step by step through the EFT process of change. The Externship is approved by the International Centre for Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT) and provides the first level of training required for certification as an Emotionally Focused Therapist. In addition, this training explores the integration of EFT principles and practices with theological insights and experiences.
The Externship is led by ICEEFT-Certified trainers Dr. Teri Murphy & Dr. Greg Cheney. These trainers have each developed spiritually-oriented resources for applying EFT to couples seeking to strengthen their relationship through their faith.
• Learn primary EFT concepts based on attachment and emotion theory.
• Identify EFT stages and steps and related interventions.
• Practice EFT interventions used to promote de-escalation and restructuring relationships.
• Explore the process of creating emotional bond through corrective emotional experiences.
• Examine EFT concepts and practices and their value to faith-based couples.
*We aim to have TWO live sessions during this training. These sessions will be worked in at the couples' convenience, thus the event schedule is simply an outline of topics that will be covered each day.
28 CEs will be awarded after the successful completion of all requirements.
