Four Day Externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples is the fastest growing evidenced-based approach to treating couple distress in the world. Developed by Dr. Sue Johnson, the EFT Model is based on the Science of Emotions, Attachment Theory, Humanistic Psychology and Family Systems Theory. EFT helps couples move from distress in their relationship to a safer, more loving and fulfilling relationship. “In my 40 plus years of doing marital therapy, I have never been able to help highly conflicted couples move from disconnection to a deep, loving bond so effectively as when I learned EFT.” (Murray Armstrong)


General Objectives

Participants will learn to:

  1. Identify the 3 stages and 9 steps of Emotionally Focused Therapy

  2. See marital distress from an attachment perspective

  3. Help couples recognize and de-escalate problematic patterns of interaction

  4. Help couples access the underlying attachment fears and needs that drive these negative patterns

  5. Help couples create new emotional responses to old patterns

  6. Shape key, new interactions and bonding events that result in permanent changes

  7. Help couples repair attachment injuries

  8. Overcome therapeutic impasses.

Jim Thomas, EFT Trainer, is a licensed marriage and family therapist with 28 years of clinical, supervisor and training experience. He has worked in a variety of settings such as residential treatment, day treatment and in-home therapy and with a wide array of presenting problems including trauma, addiction and shame. In these settings, Jim learned important tools and lessons about working with families facing the ravages of addiction. He brings a unique attachment lens to intervention and recovery work. Jim has shared these ideas across the United States, in Europe and Canada. Director of the Colorado Center for EFT, Jim also maintains an activeprivate practice. Jim notes that, “Couples therapy so often is in that overlap of adverse childhood experiences, traumas, isolation, injuries to a couples bond, emotional pain and shame. E.F.T. excels in these areas, offering a chance for people to come back to connection with the mostimportant person in their life.”

Yolanda von Hockauf, M.Ed.   Certified EFT Therapist, Supervisor & Trainer

Yolanda von Hockauf, M.Ed.

Certified EFT Therapist, Supervisor & Trainer

Would you like to extend your EFT work with couples to individual clients?

In this workshop we will look at how individuals can struggle with emotion regulation and get caught in negative interactional patterns. We will explore how the therapeutic relationship becomes a safe haven and secure base from which our clients can access and process their primary emotions, access their core attachment needs and shift into new, security-enhancing patterns.

You will learn how to:

  • use the attachment lens to frame individual client issues

  • track and reflect negative cycles (internal and external)

  • Use the therapeutic relationship and the client’s other relationships to create corrective emotional experiences

Note: This is a two part workshop

January 31 & February 1, 2019
Part I: Fundamentals


May 9 & 10, 2019 
Part II: Deepening Your Skills (Optional)
