The Core Skills Training Program is an excellent opportunity to develop strong clinical skills in EFT within the safety of a small group. The training is held over four two- day weekends. Enjoy a safe, collegial atmosphere to practice, share and risk with other like-minded therapists. If, as Dr. Rebecca Jorgensen writes, “…you are getting lost being an agent of change in this exciting [EFT] process you will love Core Skills!”
