The EFT 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 segments. Enjoy a safe, collegial atmosphere to practice, share and risk with other like-minded therapists. If you are getting lost in this exciting EFT change process you will love Core Skills! Each training session will contain instruction, role playing, group exercises, and participants sharing video excerpts of their work with each other – multiple ways of applying EFT work according to the guidelines of the International Centre for Excellence in EFT. Each session provides twelve hours of training.
