Basic Externship in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy

Typically taking place in the fall in the St Paul area, this four-day intensive is intended to give you the knowledge and basic skills for using EFT with your clients.  It is also the first step in becoming certified as an EFT therapist. The 28–hour externship focuses on a review of the theory and practice of EFT as well as the application, demonstration, and practical exercises. This externship is officially offered in conjunction with Dr. Susan Johnson and the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). This externship fulfills the initial externship requirement for certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).  

The next Externship will be held in the fall of 2020. 

Advanced Core Skills Training

This is advanced training in the practice of EFT and consists of four 2-day sessions spread out over the course of a year. Cost is $395 per each 2-day session. One must have completed the Basic Externship to participate.  A new group forms in the fall each year to meet at the MN Couple Therapy Center in Roseville, MN.  If you are interested in this training and want to register, or if you have any questions, please email Kurt at
