Learn The New Science Of Love

Knowing the new Science of Love will help you be successful in couples and relationships. It will even help you improve your own compassion for others and strengthen relationships in your own life. Imagine improving your therapy skill, having more success in treating couples, earning CEU’s AND getting happier in your own life all at the same time. We know from recent research (Levenson and Sandberg, 2010) attending an EFT Externship can do just that.

It’s All About The Neural Duet

This is an official Externship, endorsed by the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT) and brought to you by TRI EFT Alliant and Alliant International University. Attending this externship is the first step to being listed at the EFT website, where couples are going to find trained couple therapists. Attending this externship is also a step towards becoming a certified EFT therapist. For further details about the certification process please refer to Susan Johnson’s International Centre for Excellence in EFT (ICEEFT).

In this Externship, you will learn to:

  • see marital distress from an attachment perspective
  • help partners reprocess the emotional responses that maintain marital distress
  • shape key new interaction and bonding events and,
  • overcome therapeutic impasses.

You will also see live consultation sessions with a couple, a profound learning experience.
