Who should attend?

The externship is recommended to all professionals who counsel couples, including psychiatrists, psychologists, family physicians, social workers, psychiatric nurses, counsellors, pastors and clergy, and students training in these professions.

Participants learn to:

See marital distress from an attachment perspective, help partners reprocess the emotional responses that maintain marital distress, shape key new interactions and bonding events, and overcome therapeutic impasses. Participants are strongly encouraged to read the 2004 book on EFT - Creating Connection before coming to the externship. Ideally participants will also have viewed the first training tape - Healing Broken Bonds (available at the Institute).
