Getting grounded with the EFT Tango


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 for the clinician to ground ourselves, then we are freed up to use more of ourselves in attunement and resonance.


Traditionally we have taught Emotion Focused Therapy for couples as a model of steps and stages. For some people the steps and the stages are the comforting map of EFT, but for others the steps and the stages can be a real stumbling block that slows down the learning and fills people with insecurity. In Sue Johnson’s most recent book, she is uses the EFT Tango to illustrate how we can move through individual, couple and family sessions moving easily from systemic work into emotional deepening and back into integration. We still use the steps and

stages to guide us in our work, but the EFT Tango can help us orient ourselves throughout the session regardless of step or stage.

This workshop is designed to give the clinician a firm grasp of using the EFT Tango. We will observe, practice, and experience the EFT Tango over and over again. We will watch sessions and break down the moves one at a time. We will develop simple hand holds that you can use in your session to help you feel oriented, confident and in charge of your sessions. We will practice each move of the tango and share the learning in small groups. This workshop will be lively and experiential.

Course Goals and Objectives

  1. Define the EFT Tango and each of its moves.
  2. Conceptualize clinicians interventions in a session through the lens of the EFT Tango.
  3. Apply different moves of the EFT Tango to different struggles in couple therapy.
  4. Use systemic skills to clarify a dynamic (Move 1) before dropping anchor (move 2)
  5. Use a balance of emotional deepening skills in combination with increasing awareness skills to help clients expand emotional capacity while increasing awareness.
  6. Use the EFT Tango to orient at moments of confusion and overwhelm or escalation.
