Training for Professional Therapists in
Emotionally Focused Therapy
What is Emotionally Focused Therapy?
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), is a form of therapy that strives to help individuals identify the underlying emotions that guide their relationships. The EFT approach was first developed by Susan Johnson and Les Greenberg in the 1980s, and it continues to become one of the most popular and effective ways to improve relationships.
The Center offers EFT supervision and training to therapy professionals in-person and online led by Clinical Director, Supervisor and Trainer, George Faller.
