About Core Skills

Course Content

Four or five 2-day workshops will provide an in depth study of each of the EFT steps. Each day will contain instruction and group supervision of EFT work according to the guidelines set out by the Centre for Excellence in EFT (in Ottawa). Each weekend provides twelve hours of training.

There will be opportunity for participants to get feedback on videos of their own work with clients. Bringing your own video to view is necessary to meet the Advanced Externship requirement of certification.


All leaders are endorsed and ICEEFT certified EFT Trainers

It’s ideal for participants to have prior experience working with couples and have at least one couple on their current caseload willing to be videotaped for case consultation and feedback of their clinical work.

Completing the registration enrolls the applicant in the full course, or all sessions, of the training and is a declaration of intent to complete the course.
