Trainings through the Los Angeles Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy (LACEFT)

  • Getting Grounded in the EFT Tango with Sharon Chatkupt Lee, PsyD–October 5, 2019

    Getting Grounded in the EFT Tango is a one-day course designed to help participants develop familiarity and skill in using the EFT Tango in their clinical work. With the EFT Tango we can be more oriented and confident in knowing how to balance process and cycle work with emotional access and deepening. By providing simple guideposts that help us ground ourselves, the EFT Tango frees us to use more of ourselves in attunement and resonance.

Some comments from participants in Betsy and Bahar’s workshop:

“This was an amazing experience – incredible approach to strengthening a significant relationship. So glad I was able to attend with my fiancé. Gave us tools to use for a better life.”

“The workshop surpassed all my expectations. I was worried that bringing up feelings and issues might harm my relationship. But with the tools I learned to use, it felt very safe, and the conversations between my partner and me were well received on both sides and brought us closer together.”
