Emotion-focused Therapy (EFT) is a unique empirically-based approach, based on methods designed to help people accept, express, regulate, make sense of, and transform emotion. Recent years have seen a growth of EFT in individual and couples therapy, both because of its status as an evidence-based treatment and also because the EFT approach focuses on the development of emotional intelligence and on the importance of secure relationships. Because of these emphases, EFT offers an alternative to more technically-oriented evidence-based treatments.
While the physical location of the clinic is closed during the mandated physical distancing directive - therapy services continue to be offered through various virtual portals. The 2021 EFT Continuing Education Training Institutes will all be offered virtually.
