EFT Core Skills Training in Toronto, ON Fall 2019 to Spring of 2020

Stacks Image 3957

The EFT Core Skills Training consists of 4 2-day modules and is designed to follow the EFT Externship.  In the Core Skills training, participants spend more time learning the EFT stages and interventions. Each module is 2 days - 12 hours and consists of instruction by a certified ICEEFT trainer.  In the first two modules, participants deepen their understanding of Stage #1 of EFT - Deescalation. In the second two modules, participants will learn how to restructure interactions and create bonding moments for their couples creating second order change.  

The Core Skills material is taught with a variety of teaching methods including lecture, interactive discussions, role plays, video demonstrations and live session consultations and follows the learning guidelines set out by the Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT).  This is a 48-hour training course and is a further step to becoming a Certified EFT Therapist.  Participants are required to commit to all four modules in order to create a cohesive group that is a safe and secure place to learn and explore, take risks and have fun! 

Each participant is required to bring a small section of video of their work to view for trainer/group supervision.  This requirement is to help clinicians begin to video their sessions and watch their own work, which is a key way of learning EFT.  It is not about showing perfect EFT!  Please contact Debbie Wang if you have questions or concerns about this.

It is our main goal to create a safe and secure place to explore, take risks, be vulnerable and learn!


In her new book, 'Attachment Theory in Practice', Sue Johnson states the EFT tango is the basic intervention that the therapist employs again and again in all stages and forms of EFT (Johnson - 2019).

Participants of the Core skills will spend time learning the 5 moves of the tango, watching it being executed in EFT videos and a live session and practice the intervention in role-plays.
