The Institute of Emotion-Focused Therapy Ireland offers training in EFT and related therapies.
Trainings run by the institute are intended for practitioners who are already qualified, practising psychotherapy, and accredited with their governing body.

The institute is pleased to offer the upcoming training events:
Following on from 2017's couples training workshop with Les Greenberg, the Institute of Emotion-Focused Therapy Ireland is proud to present a 4 day workshop on Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy with Rhonda Goldman, PhD.
Rhonda Goldman is one of the principal developers of EFT, and with Les Greenberg is co-author of Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy: The Dynamics of Emotion, Love, and Power (2008).
The workshop will explore the foundations of EFT for Couples but will also focus on more recent developments as elaborated on in The Dynamics of Emotion, Love, and Power. As such the workshop is suitable both for practitioners new to EFT (and EFT for Couples) and for EFT therapists seeking to deepen their practice.
The workshop also constitutes one of the steps towards certification as an EFT Couples therapist with the International Society for Emotion-Focused Therapy.
