About Core Skills

Course Content

Two three-day workshops will provide an in depth study of each of the EFT steps. Each day will contain instruction and group supervision of EFT work according to the guidelines set out by the Centre for Excellence in EFT (ICEEFT in Ottawa). The first three days cover Stage One of EFT (steps one, two, three, and four) and the second three days cover Stage Two of EFT (steps five, six, and seven for the withdrawer and the pursuer).

There will be opportunity for participants to get feedback on videos of their own work with clients. Bringing your own video to view is necessary to meet the Advanced Externship requirement of certification.

Attendance qualifies participants for Advanced Externship designation with 48 hours of group supervision (CE Credits provided by Aikin Associates Seminars*) which can be applied toward EFT Certification.

The only outstanding requirement for Certification after attending Core Skills Training is eight hours of individual supervision. The application process is described on www.eft.ca. Final decision regarding readiness for certification is determined by the EFT Centre in Ottawa.
