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 Externship offers a unique

opportunity to incorporate key insights from Dr. Sue Johnson and Kenny Sanderfer’s recent book Created for

Connection, a hands-on resource designed for Christian couples.

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 common to

Christian couples.

The Externship is led by ICEEFT-Certified trainer Kenny Sanderfer, LMFT.  Kenny has developed spiritually-oriented resources for applying EFT to couples seeking to strengthen their relationship through their Christian faith.

Participants will:

• 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 Christian couples.
