Being a resource to mental health professionals who want to learn about EFT or further develop their skills as an EFT therapist is important to us.  

The EFT Resource Center offers professional workshops, courses, training and supervision opportunities in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples.  We are happy to collaborate with Illuminated Education to offer Continuing Education courses throughout the year.

Do you have a professional group that you would like to have learn more about EFT?  Drs. Irwin and Blum have been invited to speak with many professional groups including the San Gabriel Psychological Association, The LA Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy, the Lesbian and Gay Psychotherapy Association, and the California Society for Clinical Social Work to name a few. Please email Dr. Lisa Blum if you are interested in organizing a professional event to learn more about EFT.
