22 CEUs available!

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.  

In BCS: Stage Two, we will cover: 

  • Moving from Stage One to Stage Two;
  • Withdrawer Re-Engagement (WRE);
  • Assessing the Completion of WRE;
  • Pursuer Softening;
  • 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.
