Participant Feedback

The following quotes are taken verbatim from course evaluation forms from GETME’s experiential trainings:

All the EFT basics seem really impactful. It feels like skills that could be used at anytime in therapy and also easily incorporated with other therapeutic approaches. I really enjoyed the triad method. I also liked learning the skill and then practicing the skill. I found the handouts really helpful.

“I enjoyed the whole program so much. Really deepened my knowledge around EFT, that I found I was able to practically apply with clients. I loved the active demonstrations and the bond that the group built. Such a great experience, I will definitely be back for another training in the future!”

“As a counseling graduate student, this has been perhaps the most valuable skills building and mentorship I’ve received. I felt supported in working on specific aspects of EFT as applied to role plays in class. Likewise, the capacity for the instructor to meet each of us in our specific questions with highly relevant reflections means that we were learning in a way that we were directly integrating and applying in real time.”

“This course has had a profound impact on my life both personally and professionally. I feel fortunate to have learned alongside each of the cohort members who also brought an invaluable richness to the process, as well as the space that was expertly opened and nourished by Tom so that we could each bring our full presence. Thank you!”

“I enjoyed learning in an emotionally-rich environment, building relationships with fellow practitioners/learners as a medium through which theoretical learning took place/deepened.”

“Thanks for facilitating, Tom! I wish much more of the learning of our counseling program at [X University] could be like this :)”

“I loved the trust and camaraderie fostered within the group. I loved how the content that I learned seemed to flow through a conversation, so I didn’t even feel like I was being lectured at all.”

I most enjoyed working with the present emotional experience of participants in break out rooms for real world practice, and the comments of the instructor when observing break out sessions.”

I enjoyed the bite-sized lessons each week, coupled with lots of opportunities to ask questions. The practice sessions were extremely helpful.” 

This training systematically explained the basic vocabulary and concepts of EFT, making it easier to understand the theory from the ground up.”

I was able to learn, observe, and practice empathic exploration, productive emotional processing, and the importance of identifying and working with clients’ primary adaptive emotions. I also appreciate the importance of exploratory reflections, evocative reflections, and empathic explorations. among many others. I enjoyed the triad practice and insightful feedback from Tom Kubasik and the other participants. I was able to immediately use these skills and techniques with my current clients throughout the training and continue to use these as they have been integrated into my practice. I am grateful for Tom, for his support of emotional safety during triads, and for his expertise, insight, and concrete feedback.”

I felt I really connected with the format and the content. I have been able to incorporate much of my learning immediately into sessions with clients and see a stronger connection and level of attunement with them as a result.

I loved the trios. I loved Tom’s patience with us all, repeating and repeating ideas, especially for me, a newbie. I had read a couple books but hearing it from Tom’s mouth and then getting to practice it, building block by building block, was so helpful.

The mix of lecture and practical application real play sessions.”

Breaking down complex theory and subtle interventions into core elements which built gradually and allowing time to experience it from multiple angles (counselor, client, experiential, intellectual, etc.) and with time to digest it. Connecting with other counselors who are interested in focusing on emotion and value emotional experience. Having the chance to watch other people work and receive feedback on work/use of interventions. Tom’s/Your ability to express confidence and knowledge co-existing with a radical level of admitting and expressing not-knowing.

The lecture/conversation was so informative and then having the chance to actually use the interventions and then discuss them in small groups and as a whole.”

I loved getting hands on experience practicing what we learned and really helpful feedback as we went along.”
