Intro to EFT: Experiential 2-Day Workshop for Mental Health Professionals


About this Workshop

This workshop will be highly experiential, teaching Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) with couples, largely through demonstration, video clips, and experiential participant exercises. This workshop is designed to give participants a high-level understanding and appreciation for the EFT model, to help participants begin to see their clients through a new, more powerful, and more accurate lens, and practice skills that can be put into place immediately.

Emotionally Focused Therapy is a highly effective, evidence-based approach that is attachment-based, experiential, systemic, and de-pathologizing. It is the gold standard for working with couples, and offers new insights and powerful tools for therapists and behavioral health specialists working with individuals and families. This model utilizes the theory of adult love in a systematic map to heal distressed couple relationships which has a positive effect on the rest of the family and society.

This 2-Day Introduction to Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is designed for all mental health professionals and graduate students.

EFT is a short-term approach developed by Dr. Susan M. Johnson, founder of the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). It reflects the most recent research on the nature of relationship distress, adult love, and emotion. Emotionally Focused Therapy has revolutionized couple therapy. It is one of the most empirically supported models of couple therapy, is being taught all over the world, and is a must-know model whether you are working with couples, individuals or families.

“Don’t miss this opportunity to study Emotionally Focused Therapy with an incredibly insightful teacher. I’ve watched many hours of EFT sessions with internationally known therapists, and I can say whole-heartedly that Lori Marchak’s natural skills as a clinician and a teacher show that she is one of the best of the best. We are beyond lucky to have her in Montana.” – Sunny Mavor, LMFT, Bozeman

“Lori Marchak is an amazing therapist who knows EFT inside and out. She is passionate, warm, caring, clear and organized; a leader in her field.” – Debi Scimeca-Diaz, LMFT, LCADC, Director, New Jersey Center for EFT and ICEEFT Trainer

“Lori has a gift in teaching and inspiring those who work with her to feel supported and encouraged in the learning process. I can’t say enough about how much I have appreciated what she has taught me over these years. She has great insight and wisdom. I just can’t say enough about Lori and her dedication and commitment to EFT as a facilitator, supervisor, trainer and leader here in the state of Montana.” – Michelle Pittack, LCPC, Billings

“Lori is one of those exceptional individualists that seeks to constantly deepen her knowledge of what it is to be a human being. While many professionals can become content with their level of expertise in an area, Lori seems to always be working towards increasing her mastery, understanding, and ability to transform the lives of others. Her unwavering dedication to furthering her mastery of being an agent of change for her clients, allows her to be an inspiring teacher to others that share the journey of learning. She brings her compassion, wisdom, and humor into her therapy and teaching. She inspires those that are fortunate to be around her to greater professional and personal heights.” – John D.
