Emotion-Focused Therapy Level 1

This training will be offered again once we can safely hold it in person. 

In October of 2019, GETME partnered with ISEFT to
present Emotion-Focused Therapy, Level 1. It was highly successful — read some participant responses here. We will definitely be presenting this training again. (Dates to be determined.) We will also be presenting EFT Level 2 when there are enough Level 1 completers who demand it (we’re getting there!). If you are interested, please contact GETME to let us know.

Below is a description of the workshop for those who may be thinking of taking it.

What: This workshop will cover the fundamentals of Emotion-Focused Therapy for Individuals. Major topics include facilitating EFT tasks to help transform difficult emotions such as core sadness, shame, fear, and vulnerability that are often the source of many clinical problems including depression, anxiety, and trauma. This innovative and engaging program combines didactics, with videotaped demonstration of EFT in action, as well as hands-on experiential learning.

When: TBA

Where: TBA

Who: This training is for Psychologists, Counselors, Social Workers, Marriage & Family Therapists, or others whose scope of practice includes psychotherapy.

With Tom Kubasik, LCPC, facilitator

Learning Objectives

Participants will learn how EFT therapists:

  • Identify and access core pain/primary emotions associated with the presenting problems that bring people to therapy.
  • Track clients’ clinical presentation in order to identify emotional processing difficulties and access core underlying painful emotions.
  • Assess ways of processing emotion that block or inhibit adaptive use of emotions that are key to producing change.
  • Identify key markers (in-session behaviors) in therapy that indicate when and how to intervene in order to change negative dysfunctional emotions.
  • Identify phases in emotional processing in order to resolve core issues related to shame, vulnerability, and emotional injuries that block self-acceptance and self-worth.
