Emotionally Focused Therapy Training
EFT is a challenging, integrated model of therapy to learn and master, and supervision is an essential experience in becoming a better EFT therapist. Jennifer offers individual and group supervision to therapists who want to hone their skills and clinical effectiveness in EFT as well as ICEEFT approved supervision for certification. No matter your level of experience with EFT support in the learning process is of utmost importance to Jennifer.
If you are interested in expert consultation in Emotionally Focused Therapy or are working towards ICEEFT Certification, Jennifer would be honored to support you.
Using Hierarchical Linear Modeling with a sample of 32 couples, researchers examined session-by-session changes in couples’ relationship-specific attachment behaviors.
Shaping new interactions between distressed partners can feel like playing a violin in the middle of a war zone. If you’re going to help your couples heal, you have to know what to do when these new interactions start to go wrong.
Fortunately, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) provides us with a clear map to help partners have conversations that redefine a distressed relationship and ensure we’re shaping a more secure bond — the kind of bond we all long for and need. In this video, Dr. Sue Johnson demonstrates two simple EFT techniques that you can immediately use with your couples to make sure that shaping these new, loving conversations goes smoothly.

SV is your premier, online education experience that leads with innovative instruction to advance your therapeutic effectiveness through exclusive Modules and full-length Clinical Examples.

What to Expect From EFT Supervision
What can you expect in supervision?
A Warm & Safe Alliance and Attunement: I am always concerned first and foremost with how I work relationally with EFT supervisees, ensuring their emotional safety within the supervision process. My hope is the supervision process will model how EFT Practitioners build, maintain, and repair attuned therapeutic alliances with clients so that supervisees can provide the same safety with their clients.
Conceptualization from an EFT frame: I help supervisees with the acquisition and understanding of EFT theory and knowledge about the problems our clients experience and the antidotes that the EFT process offers. This includes review and integration of materials from EFT trainings.
Experiential Learning and Application: Learning EFT is about “building muscle memory” through in-vivo practical application. At times this will happen in a spontaneous conversation, and at other times through explicit role play of client-therapist.
Self-of-Therapist Support: I want to support supervisees in understanding how their own emotional experiences operate in their clinical work, in ways that both help and hinder effectiveness, and how to work authentically and with integrity. This can mean identifying therapist emotional blocks to fully utilizing skills and concepts, working together to resolve those blocks, and/or identifying resources for the therapist's ongoing support and growth.
Core Skills for Professionals
Take it to the next level! This accelerated series of advanced, small-group trainings for mental health professionals are in person in Missoula, Montana. To register, participants must have completed an EFT Externship.
Successful completion of Core Skills training is a major step on the path to EFT Certification. Core Skills training takes a closer, more in-depth look at the steps and stages of EFT, moving therapists to a deeper level of understanding and higher levels of proficiency and confidence in EFT. Core Skills training is highly experiential, including live demonstrations of EFT by the trainers, watching expert sessions on videotape, and numerous small and large group experiential exercises.
Core Skills 1 & 2 training is intimate, safe and supportive, with the deeply held belief that by supporting each other, we can all grow to become accomplished EFT couple therapists. Core Skills participants often “bond” with each other and their trainers, forming long-term supportive relationships. Participants are expected to be actively engaged in some couples work and to regularly videotape and review their own work. As a requirement of Core Skills training, each participant will bring a 10–15-minute segment of their work on videotape to one of the workshop weekends for feedback and case consultation.
