Healing Broken Bonds
2-Day EFT Training
June 6th-7th, 2019

Trainers: James Furrow, Ph.D. and  Lisa J. Palmer, Psy.D.


Couples dealing with major trust betrayals is often the most frequent presenting concern in couple therapy. Although a common reason given for divorce, many couples seek treatment to heal their relationship following an affair rather than pursue its end. This training reviews practices and resources that help couples work through the injury of a betrayal and its collateral impact using Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy. This advanced Master Class involves a full-day of didactic training, including examples of couples working through these injuries. The training also provides opportunity for focused case reviews addressing specific questions and treatment issues focused on repairing relationship betrayals commonplace in everyday clinical practice.


Demonstration and discussion of EFT practice based upon clinical cases brought by workshop participants. Our format provides opportunity for moment-to-moment discussions of the EFT process in betrayal repair, as well as experiential exercises that integrate EFT theory and practice.
