    About This Training: 

    Emotions tell us where to focus our attention and they are also

    our most important tool to bring about change in our clients. In

    EFT, vulnerable emotions are accessed, explored, and

    expanded to facilitate client shifts toward more adaptive

    integrated emotions in relationships. This involves greater

    experiential involvement in therapy as clients focus inward on

    their meaning-making process. 

    Today’s discussion will focus on a group presentation by Sam,

    small group discussions between old and new (split up into

    mixed groups of 0-5 years of EFT training, and veterans of over

    5 years since learning the model of EFT, and then a large

    group discussion as to what was discovered or learned in the

    smaller groups of old and new.

     One of the areas of emphasis will be, what truly differentiates a

    Stage One Tango from a Stage Two Tango. Another focus will

    be holding onto the Steps and Stages and of course RISSSSC

    as a guiding map such that we can review internal working

    models and unmet attachment longings that fuel patterns. And

    finally, most importantly, we will boldly lean into deeper and

    scarier enactments as we know that when deeper and scary

    are well received, we can shift and structure bonds from

    insecure to secure.

    Learning Objectives:

     At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

    1. Identify two key differences between Stage One Tangos and

    Stage Two Tangos.

    2. Discuss and explain three core therapeutic practices in EFT

    to attune to and evoke attachment emotions, longings and fears.

    3. Apply powerful yet basic EFT skills such as reflecting and

    validating in attachment terms to develop entry points to explore,

    distill and enact such that deeper and scarier.
