Supervision Groups for Black & Brown Therapists
Developing The Next Generation Integration of Culture & Deep Love
“I am because we are and, since we are, therefore I am …”
Working Together Towards Excellence:
Collectively with humility, and clarity of goals we offer this in-depth EFT learning experience that will hone learnings from EFT courses, externships, and core skills.
We will help you deepen your understanding of EFT interventions and move through the three major change events. We will provide videotape reviews, and facilitate discussions about the EFT process & therapy, along with integrating matters of race & culture.
There will be lots of experiential exercises and discussions to help you understand the model and advance your training in Emotionally Focused Therapy.
Recognizing that EFT is an international model of therapy & training our brothers and sisters from all parts of the African continent, the Caribbean, and the border African diaspora are welcome.
Our first group starts up Tuesday, October 18th, and meets virtually every other week (bi-monthly).
4:00 pm – 5:30 pm Pacific Time
