Knowing Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (or, the new “Science of Love”) will help you be successful in couples and relationships.  Developed by Dr. Sue Johnson, Emotionally Focused Therapy is a powerful, empirically validated approach to working with even the most distressed couples.  It will even help you improve your own compassion for others and strengthen relationships in your own life.  Imagine improving your therapy skill, having more success in treating couples, earning CE credits, and getting happier in your own life all at the same time.  We know from recent research (Levenon & Sandberg, 2010), attending an EFT Exerternship can do just that!
