The Emotion Training Institute (ETI) offers training, guided practice, and consultation in the emotion focused approach.
Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), founded by Dr. Leslie Greenberg, is a richly elaborate, textured, and nuanced psychotherapy model. EFT promotes and supports the development of emotion self-efficacy, or mastery, in living productively with the array of human emotional experience. Based on a half-century of study, clinical practice, and research, EFT gives us the science of emotion to help individuals move from a fear and avoidance of painful emotion to a competence in utilizing the inherent guidance system that our emotional experience provides us.
