I am a couples therapist, and I am interested in learning more about EFT and how to integrate it into my practice. Where would you suggest that I start?
The Fundamentals course is a good place to start if you’d like an overview of EFT.
If you’re ready to jump in, the Externship is the starting point for couples – or the EFIT or EFFT Essentials courses for individual or family EFT. You can find all these courses under the “EFT FOR THERAPISTS” menu and the appropriate submenu.
Is it ok to sign up for an online training that is being offered in a state other than the one in which I reside?
You will need to check with the organizers. Some may have restrictions based on location. If the course is offered directly through ICEEFT Courses, then it is ok
Upon completion of an online class related to EFT, can I say I’m trained in EFT & advertise to the public? Or do I need to complete an Externship or EFIT or EFFT Essentials to advertise as an EFT therapist?
You may state that you have taken an EFT course, but you may not say that you are certified in EFT.
The program is designed to be facilitated with minimal training and preparation by private mental health practitioners who have had some training in EFT.
