Registration form for EFT L3 - Fall Institute 2023

This 4 day institute will provide more in-depth training in areas first introduced in the basic EFTT course and, additionally, will introduce yoga-based principles and practices that can augment standard EFTT interventions. Change in EFT is contingent on clients’ awareness of emotion, ability to regulate and reflect on emotional experience, and to access healthy self-protective resources to modify maladaptive emotion schemes - to change the “same old story”. This is the essence of emotional transformation regardless of the procedure. Yet anyone learning and practicing EFT with traumatized clients will come across individuals who struggle in these areas, who are “stuck”, and have difficulties engaging in standard EFT interventions. The most recent iteration of EFTT integrates principles and practices derived from yoga therapy that address client emotional processing difficulties that interfere with their ability to engage in EFTT interventions and benefit from therapy.

Prerequisite: EFT Institutes level one and two and EFT Trauma

Fee: $1445.00
