Therapist Trainings

Introduction to Experiential Therapy

Owing to the pandemic, this course is being reworked as online offering. Starting in January, 2021 this training group will meet via Zoom, once a week for 2.5 hours each meeting. Meetings will continue throughout the Winter and Spring. Details to follow.

Emotion-Focused Therapy Trainings

The following trainings are on Emotion-Focused Therapy, an empirically supported integration of Person-Centered Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Focusing, and Emotion Theory. (Intro to Experiential Therapy is, in a sense, the perfect background for getting the most out of EFT workshops.)

Emotion-Focused Therapy Level 1

The basics: Empathy, Emotion Theory, Task Markers, the most important tasks, and experiential practice on each of the four days. This four-day training will be taught by master clinician Rhonda Goldman, who is a major contributor to this theory. (Four full days.)

Emotion-Focused Therapy Level 2

Level 2 goes deeper into theory and practice, and introduces EFT case formulation. This allows for clearer understanding of our clients, and more targeted and effective selection of interventions. Rhonda Goldman will teach. (Four full days.)

EFT Tasks
Practice Group

You’ve taken an EFT training, and you’ve seen firsthand the incredible power of the tasks. But how do you remember all the technical details without getting lost and losing your empathic center? Supported practice is very helpful here. Join other therapists working on exactly this problem. (Four 4.5 hour meetings.)

Intro to Experiential Couples Therapy

Couples work can quickly get chaotic and you must have a model to organize the proceedings. This group will walk you through the basic theory and practice of Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples. EFT-C uses all the theory of EFT for individuals, but adds the system lens. (Four 4.5 hour meetings.)
