Core Skills Training

About Core Skills

Core Skills Advanced Training consists of four two-day workshops. These workshops 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. When you sign up for the course you are committing your intention to complete all four weekends.

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.* (see explanation below)

Attendance meets the ICEEFT course requirement (CEUs provided by Alliant International University)* when applying for Certified EFT Therapist designation.

The only outstanding requirement for Certification after attending Core Skills Training is eight hours of individual supervision. The application process is described on www.eft.ca. Final decision regarding readiness for certification is determined by the EFT Centre in Ottawa.

Participants are required to have completed an EFT Externship and be willing to present their own work through videotape presentation*.

Case Presentations

Case presentation with video review is an important part of the process of learning EFT. We all can feel a little scared presenting our work! In this course, we seek to make this a safe, supportive, and hopefully even fun experience. You will use at least two videos of your work during the course. One will be for a learning exercise in dyads early in the course, and one will be a formal case presentation.
For the formal case presentation, we ask that you show 20 minutes of video and provide 10 minutes of case review, for a total presentation time of 30 minutes. We also ask that you complete a case presentation form, which you will either email to participants or copy for them on the day of your presentation. More details will follow as we come closer to the dates of the course.
If you aren’t yet videoing your sessions we can help you with how to approach taping and provide you sample consent forms. We will help you all along this process. If you can’t tape or are worried about this process please talk to us, video does not need to be a block to not attending.
