“I felt like it helped me and my partner understand what was happening between us in rough moments and give us a map for how to find out way out."
"The Hold Me Tight workshop gave my husband and me a new way of discussing thorny issues. The course helped us to delve deep and identify the causes behind the actions, enabling empathy and compassion to follow. Dr. Lisa Blum and Dr. Silvina Irwin couldn't be better teachers and listeners. I highly recommend the workshop!"
The EFT Resource Center was launched by Drs. Lisa Blum and Silvina Irwin, both licensed clinical psychologists with 20 years of combined experience working with families and couples, as well as individuals. Several years ago they began training in Emotionally Focused Therapy with Dr. Sue Johnson, the founder and innovator of EFT, and recognized world-wide relationship expert. The power of EFT to fundamentally change the nature of distressed couples’ relationships was so compelling, and had so much research evidence of its effectiveness -- they were inspired to pursue advanced training, supervision, and consultation using EFT.
The EFT Resource Center was conceived as a home for EFT education, events and workshops in their home communities and beyond. Continuing Education credits are available through workshop collaboration with Illuminated Education. Illuminated Education is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists, and by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences to provide continuing education credit for MFTs and LCSWs (BBS approval number PCE 4514)
