NCCEFT Day-long Training

Keeping Our Balance as We Access and Work More Deeply with Emotions in EFT

Presented by:

Rebecca Jorgensen, PhD, Certified EFT Trainer and Supervisor

SUBJECT: Balancing ourselves as therapists is a critical component of the steps and stages of EFT as we work to co-regulate our couples, bring more awareness to their bodily responses and expand their depth of experiencing. This can be a tricky balancing act when our Withdrawers and Pursuers utilize such different coping skills to manage their attachment threats! As we work to help couples learn to feel more deeply and respond across the course of treatment, we are often faced with challenges as we begin to access, heighten, and deepen those newfound emotions. This day-long training is designed to help you become more balanced and confident in utilizing EFT as you learn to access and expand working with deeper and more complex emotions with your couples.

Participants will:
A) Learning goal 1. Identify 3 steps to expanding deeper emotion with Pursuers and Withdrawers.
B) Learning goal 2. Develop skills in overcoming blocks and impasses when working with intellectual and/or defensive withdrawers.
C) Learning goal 3. Learn 2 key questions to ask that can boost your traction.
D) Learning goal 4. Practice through role-plays with other participants how to utilize "appraisal and bodily response" elements of emotion to reliably move out of content and into emotion.

E) Learning goal 5. Identify and discuss ways to help withdrawers access, experience, and express their feelings safely and effectively.

F) Learning goal 6. Describe how, with transparency and vulnerability, therapists can bring their "best self" into they therapeutic process of deepening emotions.

While NCCEFT works to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there will be occasional issues which will require intervention and/or action on the part of NCCEFT. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such complaints.

When a participant, either orally or in written format, files a grievance and expects action on the complaint, the following actions will be taken:

1. If the complaint concerns a speaker, the content presented by the speaker, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the complaint will be asked to put his/her comments in written format. The CE Program Director will then pass on the comments to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the aggrieved individual.

2. If the complaint concerns a workshop offering, its content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the workshop was offered, the CE Program Director will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action during a workshop or conference, the CE Program Director or his/her representative will:

a. attempt to rectify the situation, and/or

b. provide a credit for a subsequent presentation, in the event of a program having an attendance fee or

c. provide a partial or full refund of the registration fee, in the event of a program having an attendance fee.

Actions 2b and 2c will require a written note, documenting the grievance, for record keeping purposes. The note need not be signed by the aggrieved individual.

3. If the grievance concerns the business practices of the NCCEFT CE program in a specific regard, the CE Program Director or Administrator will attempt to arbitrate.


In the event that a program presentation has an attendance fee, CANCELLATIONS should be made 48 hours prior to the event.
