GETME offers trainings in Client-Centered Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Couples Therapy, and Emotion-Focused Therapy. Here are some brief descriptions with links to more information.

Emotion-Focused Therapy Track

Foundations of Emotion-Focused Therapy

Emotion-Focused Therapy is an empirically supported integration of Person-Centered Therapy and Gestalt Therapy grounded in an immensely useful contemporary theory of emotion. This course introduces clinicians to the basics of EFT emotion-theory, and to a suite of interventions designed to help access and process emotions. The course will help participants to deepen their therapeutic presence, better understand client processes, and organize their interventions. Even if you never become an EFT therapist, the material presented here is excellent for any clinician to learn.

Following, Unfolding & Focusing

The follow-up to Foundations, this is a course in staying with accessed experience, and exploring it for feelings, meanings, needs, and adaptive action tendencies. This course introduces to participants to EFT’s “marker-guided” principle of markers and tasks, and the first tasks are presented.

Prerequisite: Foundations of Emotion-Focused Therapy 

EFT Chair Work

This course introduces clinicians to the use of psychotherapeutic “chair work.” Chair Work includes 1) Two-Chair Dialogues for the resolution of intrapsychic conflicts and maladaptive self-treatment (i.e., self-criticism, self-interrupting, self-worrying), as well as 2) Empty Chair work for the resolution of interpersonal “unfinished business” related to (typically unavailable) significant others from the client’s life.

Prerequisite: Foundations of Emotion-Focused Therapy & Following, Unfolding & Focusing

This course combines experiential theory and practice with systemic understandings of couples conflicts. It introduces clinicians to an experiential approach to de-escalating couples conflicts, and re-engaging partners in a deeper and more authentic bond.

Prerequisite: Foundations of Emotion-Focused Therapy
