Shoring up the Emotional Bonds from the Inside Out

Internal Family Systems (IFS) and EFT-Partners in Intimacy

Presented by:

Susan Glick, Ph.D., Certified EFT Therapist and Supervisor

and Marjorie Chaset, LMFT, Certified EFT Therapist 


Participants will:

 Introduce the concept of Self-energy and how it can inform and support our work as EFT therapists and deepen our understanding of Self of the EFT therapist.

B) Learn and practice tracking the EFT cycle from an IFS perspective – identifying protectors (secondary emotions, reactive behaviors) above the line and exiles (primary emotions, attachment longings) below the line.

C) Understand the transpersonal aspect of RISSSC – it’s more than just a set of behaviors, a tone, a prosody; discovering how Self energy creates a more secure base from which the therapist can do EFT.

D) Understand the difference between speaking “from a part” and “for a part” when working the steps of EFT, and how the process of unblending brings more Self-energy on board.

While NCCEFT works to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there will be occasional issues which will require intervention and/or action on the part of NCCEFT. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such complaints.

When a participant, either orally or in written format, files a grievance and expects action on the complaint, the following actions will be taken:

1. If the complaint concerns a speaker, the content presented by the speaker, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the complaint will be asked to put his/her comments in written format. The CE Program Director will then pass on the comments to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the aggrieved individual.

2. If the complaint concerns a workshop offering, its content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the workshop was offered, the CE Program Director will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action during a workshop or conference, the CE Program Director or his/her representative will:

a. attempt to rectify the situation, and/or

b. provide a credit for a subsequent presentation, in the event of a program having an attendance fee or

c. provide a partial or full refund of the registration fee, in the event of a program having an attendance fee.

Actions 2b and 2c will require a written note, documenting the grievance, for record keeping purposes. The note need not be signed by the aggrieved individual.

3. If the grievance concerns the business practices of the NCCEFT CE program in a specific regard, the CE Program Director or Administrator will attempt to arbitrate.


In the event that a program presentation has an attendance fee, CANCELLATIONS are subject to a $50.00 processing fee and must be received 14 days prior to be eligible for a refund.
