Course Content

Volume 1: Core Concepts and Interventions

Dr. Rebecca Jorgensen, EFT expert and sought-after trainer, gives a comprehensive overview of the core concepts, steps, stages, and key interventions of EFT.

The theory and techniques come to life with numerous vignettes featuring 6 real-life couples with diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, and issues. Over 100 hours of actual couples therapy have been painstakingly distilled to demonstrate the essential components and subtleties of EFT.

Volume  2: EFT Stage 1

Learn in detail the four steps of EFT Stage 1 that lead to de-escalation.

  • Identify the negative cycle
  • Access primary emotions
  • Recognize the markers of de-escalation

By the end of this volume, you will know how to guide your clients to take control of their negative cycle, giving them more hope and courage to go forward.  

Volume 3: EFT Stage 2-3

In Stage 2, the therapist becomes a choreographer who restructures the clients’ interactions.

Learn how to achieve EFT’s critical change events--withdrawer reengagement and pursuer softening; promote acceptance of new positions of the other partner and support partners being able to ask for their needs to be met. 


Volume 4: Impasses and Challenges

In this final volume, Jorgensen and colleagues demonstrate how to handle an array of tough issues such as  ruptures in alliances, trauma history, attachment injuries, intellectualizing, and more.

Multiple vignettes from actual cases combined with incisive commentary, offer tools and strategies to help you get your couples back on track. 

Practice Exercises

12 interactive self-paced exercises available at the end of the first 3 volumes have been designed to help you integrate the key concepts of techniques of EFT.
