The Porter Cason Institute for the Family at the Tulane University School of Social Work is pleased to provide an Externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy with EFT Trainer George Faller. The four-day event will be held Monday, March 5 through Thursday, March 8 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day at the Tulane School of Social Work, located at 127 Elk Place.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • See marital distress from an attachment perspective
  • Help couples recognize and deescalate problematic patterns of interaction
  • Help couples understand the underlying attachment needs that drive these negative patterns

This training is heavily subsidized by the Porter Cason Institute and is suitable for clinicians in non-profit agencies and private practice that do individual, couples and family work.

TSSW would like to thank the local EFT community for the role it plays in Tulane trainings to help make our trainings an extension of the community's work and development. The Louisiana EFT Community, was founded in 2015 to promote EFT learning and support.
