EFT Supervisors

Individual and group supervision in EFT/EFFT is offered by Certified EFT Supervisors and approved supervisor candidates. A minimum of 8 individual supervision hours are required to apply towards certification. Group supervision can also be accessed through teleconference, Advanced Externship, or Core Skills training. The key principles of EFT clinical supervision are:

The key principles of EFT clinical supervision are:

  • A positive working alliance between the supervisor and supervisee is fostered — safety enhances learning.
  • Modeling is available: the supervisor actively demonstrates EFT interventions (e.g., demonstrates attachment language and non-verbal behaviors of EFT).
  • Observation of therapy sessions occurs or transcripts are examined. Role plays with feedback give opportunity for rehearsal.
  • Feedback to supervisee is clear, focused, supportive, and congruent with supervisee’s stage of learning.
  • Specific elements are pointed out for the supervisee to improve or work on.
  • Written theory and techniques of the EFT model are referred to and taught in relation to practice (e.g., steps, stages, interventions, experiential and non-pathologizing approach).

These principles were formulated with the help of Lisa Palmer-Olsen and the work of Eugene Mead.
