What does this Training consist of?

Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) is an empirically-supported humanistic treatment that views emotions as centrally important in human functioning and therapeutic change.

Its increasing popularity and the growing support for its efficacy with a wide variety of problems have made EFT an important approach to psychotherapy treatment. EFT involves a therapeutic style that combines both following and guiding the client’s experiential process, emphasizing the importance of both relationship and intervention skills. It views emotion as the fundamental datum of human experience while recognizing the importance of meaning making, and considers emotion and cognition as inextricably intertwined.

EFT proposes that emotions themselves have an innately adaptive potential that, if activated, can help patients change problematic emotional states or unwanted self-experiences. This perspective on emotion is based on the view, now gaining ample empirical support, that emotion at its core is an innate and adaptive system that has evolved to help us survive and thrive.

Emotions are connected to our most essential needs. They rapidly alert us to situations important to our well-being. They also prepare and guide us to take action towards meeting our needs. Individuals and couples benefit from therapy with the help of an empathically attuned relationship with their therapist, who seeks to help them to better identify, experience, explore, make sense of, transform, and more flexibly manage their emotions. As a result, persons receiving EFT treatment become stronger and are more skillful in accessing the important information and meanings about themselves and their world that emotions contain, and become more skillful in using that information to live vitally and adaptively.

The focus of this 4-day Level 1 Training in Emotion-Focused Therapy will be experiential, allowing clinicians to learn how to produce change in core emotional structures. Many approaches to date have focused on changing cognition or conscious understanding. On the contrary, EFT focuses on changing emotion and using adaptive emotion as a guide to living. This Training Course, exceptionally led by the developer of the EFT model, Leslie Greenberg, assisted by EFT supervisor Cristina Orlandi, will provide hands-on skills development. The concept and practice of process diagnosis will be introduced. Videotaped examples of EFT evidence-based methods, including the following major task interventions, will also be covered:

  1. focusing for an unclear felt sense;
  2. two-chair dialogue for working with self-criticism;
  3. empty chair dialogue for working with emotional injuries with a significant other from the past;
  4. self-interruption of emotions and needs.

Day 1 will be mainly didactic and include a wide range of videotaped clinical examples. The morning of Days 2-4 (available to all participants) will involve discussion on the key principles of EFT through a combination of brief lectures, video demonstrations, live modeling, and case discussions. The afternoon of Days 2-4 (available to option 1 participants) will be comprised of hands-on skill development through extensive supervised practice of live experiential work. The only way to learn how to work with emotion is to work on one’s own emotions; therefore, the experiential component of the training course will invite clinicians, on each day, to work on their own emotion awareness, self-criticism, unfinished business and blocking of emotion as a way to learn about working with these processes as therapists. In this way, this Training Course also offers a personal growth component.

Who would benefit from this Training?

Note: To complete additional levels of the EFT Training and Supervised Practice, participants must have a professional training in some form of Psychotherapy and be accredited Psychotherapists. Consequently, after completion of the L 1 Training hosted by Psychotherapy Courses, Psychologists must become accredited Psychotherapists before being able to attend further levels of the EFT Training Programme, as set forth by the International Society for Emotion-Focused Therapy (ISEFT).
