We are deeply honored to have been invited to help nurture the growing EFT community in Hawai'i.


We are offering two separate courses in Hawai'i:

Beyond Core Skills: Stage One (Jan. 29 - Feb. 1, 2020)

Beyond Core Skills: Stage Two (TBD 2020)


Registration will be open soon for BCS Stage Two.

22 CEUs available for each course!

PLEASE NOTE: You must have completed an Externship and a Core Skills to take these courses. You may take the Stage Two course even if you haven't taken the Stage One course. 

HI Course

This course aims to deepen understanding and develop skills to better help couples heal their connection. We will emphasize the most up-to-date understanding of how to learn and practice EFT as described in Sue Johnson’s new book, Attachment Theory in Practice.  

Additional topics covered will include:

  • managing the crisis of affair discovery;
  • escalated/rigid couples;
  • moving from Stage One to Stage Two;
  • working with Trauma in EFT.

And you will have the opportunity to bring a couple for a live session with one of the teaching team! 


We want this to be a chance for everyone to gain confidence and skill, and to dive into the nuances of this complex work among a supportive community of fellow learners. Enrollment is limited. CEUs will be provided for those who complete the full course.
