Geroge Faller is an EFT Global Trainer, Supervisor and Certified Counselor, AAMFT Supervisor and Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist.

“Who knew that four days could be so transformative? Under the masterful direction of George Faller, I was introduced to EFT, a powerful model that gets to “the heart” of the struggles many marriages face. EFT offers a way forward as it seeks to repair damaged ways of relating and unhelpful patterns of interacting. What is most exciting is that EFT offers real help, hope and healing for couples willing to engage in the process. It’s a tool I’m delighted to add to my tool box”.

What is Emotionally Focused Therapy?

Emotionally Focused Therapy, often called EFT – is a form of therapy that strives to help couples identify the underlying emotions that are guiding their relationship. 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 supervision and training to counseling professionals, pastors and chaplains in individual and group settings.

Talk is Not Enough: Using Somatic Interventions to Enhance Treatment

This Training Was Held: Thursday, June 15, 2017

Time: 9:30-4:30PM

Cost: $200

In this workshop, we will explore using somatic interventions-those that incorporate bodily awareness-to create a more embodied and effective therapeutic relationship. Somatic Experiencing heals trauma and other stress disorders by providing clinical tools to resolve where a person is “stuck” in the fight, flight, or freeze responses. These effective skills are appropriate for a variety of healing professions including mental health, medicine, physical and occupational therapies, bodywork, pastoral care, addiction treatment, first response, education, and others.

Registrants must be licensed psychotherapists, medical professionals, body workers, educators or clergy.

Maureen Gallagher, PhD, is a Licensed Psychologist in private practice in Montclair, New Jersey and New York City and is Faculty and Case  Consultant for the Somatic Experiencing Training Institute as well as a Certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist and Supervisor. Dr. Gallagher is dedicated to the integration of Somatic Experiencing with attachment informed and relational psychotherapy.
