What therapists are saying…

"I never knew learning can be so much fun. Like a riveting movie, these master therapists engage us, and take therapists on an inspiring journey that will greatly increase their effectiveness and confidence in doing couples therapy. This is a must-see for every therapist working with couples."

-- George Faller, LMFT, founder of New York Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy
"The majority of therapy in the United states is individual therapy in part because therapists find the challenges of couple therapy overwhelming. This video course featuring Dr. Rebecca Jorgensen is the best, most comprehensive program ever developed to teach therapists a systemic way to understand, assess, and treat couples. Following 6 real-life, complex couples serves to make therapeutic strategies and techniques personal and concrete. This program will benefit both experienced clinicians and those in training. I give this program my highest rating."

-- Barry McCarthy, PhD, author of numerous books on relationships and sexuality, and professor, American University

In Depth
Consider this 4-volume series your own personal master class in EFT. Many therapists agree that couples work is perhaps the most difficult aspect of psychotherapy—and without proper training, any therapist can quickly become derailed. To help keep you on track, we’re proud to present this invaluable educational resource on Emotionally Focused Therapy, hosted by expert trainer Rebecca Jorgensen. Here, you’ll find reassuring advice and a strong framework for transforming relationships using the evidence-based method’s proven techniques.

Each volume offers a focus on EFT’s attachment-based paradigm, along with an in-depth look at the key clinical tasks of each stage of the method. Interviewed by Victor Yalom, Jorgensen begins with an overview of Bowlby’s attachment theory, particularly as it pertains to relationships between partners. EFT is reknown for its emphasis on affect-based interventions, and here you’ll learn how to view couples’ needs through an attachment lens. As the series progresses, she further explains key interventions and rationales for alliance building and assessment, identifying the couple’s negative cycle, accessing primary emotions, and ultimately reaching a mutual narrative and roadmap for navigating conflict.

Jorgensen and her expert colleagues also present a series of vignettes from actual couple sessions with six sets of partners, in which they deftly demonstrate EFT’s phases step by step. Building on the concepts of previous stages of the approach, Jorgensen offers a thorough educational resource that will keep you engaged with each couple’s journey. Between creating and maintaining the therapeutic alliance, accessing and reformulating emotions, and restructuring interactions, the series gives you all you need to feel grounded and intentional with couples work.

Over the course of Volume 1, Jorgensen gives a comprehensive overview of the steps, stages, and key interventions of EFT, honing in on the method’s emphasis on cycles and primary emotions. Volume 2 focuses on the steps, stages, and key interventions that lead to complete de-escalation. In Volume 3, Jorgensen outlines the skills, protocols, and interventions that lead clients to greater acceptance of their own experience as well as their partner’s. Finally, Volume 4 brings it all together with a discussion on handling common EFT challenges and impasses.

By watching this series, you will:
• Understand the theoretical foundations, phased stages, and key tasks of EFT.
• Learn core EFT interventions for accessing clients’ primary emotions.
• Discover ways to reframe couples’ experiences in order to improve their communication and connection.
