Core Skills Advanced Training is an opportunity to deepen your understanding of EFT theory and translate it into more effective and deliberate interventions with your couples.

The four-part series will focus on specific steps of the therapy process model.


Module 1 focuses on assessment, creating a collaborative working alliance, and mapping the negative interactional pattern.

Module 2 focuses on identifying and accessing the underlying attachment-based emotions and models of self that prime and drive the negative interactive cycle–and how to de-escalate the cycle.

Module 3 begins work in Stage 2 with a focus on withdrawer re-engagement.

Module 4 completes Stage 2 with a focus on pursuer softening.

Module 5, when it is offered, is an opportunity for case presentation and deepening experiential practice.


We use didactic instruction, demonstrations from training tapes, live demonstrations with couples, and provide opportunities for formal and informal case supervision.

EFT training is safe and supportive, with the deeply held belief that by supporting each other, we can all grow to become accomplished couple therapists. Core Skills participants often “bond” with each other and their trainers, forming long-term supportive relationships.

Participants are expected to be actively engaged in some couples work and to regularly videotape and review their own work.

Core Skills Advanced Training consists of four two-day workshops. These workshops provide an in depth study of each of the EFT steps. Each day will contain instruction and group supervision of EFT work according to the guidelines set out by the Centre for Excellence in EFT (in Ottawa). Each weekend provides twelve hours of training. When you sign up for the course you are committing your intention to complete all four weekends.

There will be opportunity for participants to get feedback on videos of their own work with clients. Bringing your own video to view is necessary to meet the Advanced Externship requirement of certification.

Attendance qualifies participants for Advanced designation with 48 hours of group supervision (CEUs provided by Alliant International University)* which can be applied to EFT Registration.

The only outstanding requirement for Certification after attending Core Skills Training is eight hours of individual supervision. The application process is described on Final decision regarding readiness for certification is determined by the EFT Centre in Ottawa.


All participants are required to present a video clip of their work to complete the course, scheduled over the period of the Core Skills series.
