Emotion-Focused Therapy Level 1

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.

Another Level 1 will be scheduled as soon as 16 people indicate they want to take it. If you are interested, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page to let us know!

What: This 4-day workshop will cover the fundamentals of Emotion-Focused Therapy for Individuals.

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.

Level 1 will return to Portland when we can hold a live training safely. If you would like to participate in the next training, please enter your name and email below.
