4-Day Externship First! Followed by the Core Skills Training!

EFT Core Skills Training requires that participants have completed the 4-day Externship. Core Skills Training led by a Certified EFT Trainer comprises four 12 hour events that occur over the space of approximately 6 months to one year and is limited to 12 participants or up to 16 if there is a second Trainer or Certified EFT Supervisor leading the group. In the overall context of the EFT Tango, each 2-day session is dedicated to specific steps of the model and the therapeutic tasks and interventions characteristic of those steps.
Participants are required to present their own work through audio/videotape presentation. Registrants will be required to declare their professional designation

Due to Covid-19, the International Centre for Emotionally Focused Therapy is encouraging trainers across the globe to choose between holding their Core Skills online or in person based on public safety. The Toronto Centre for EFT is excited to announce that our next Core Skills series will go ahead as planned starting in December - online!
