Focused on learning how to provide high quality couples therapy using EFT
Internship Program

Minnesota Couple Therapy Center (MCTC) offers practicum/internship opportunities to those that are specifically passionate about couples work, attachment theory, and learning Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). 

Interns will get the opportunity to shadow at least one EFT therapist providing EFT to at least a few couples throughout their entire internship, allowing them to see how EFT progresses throughout treatment. After the first weekend of Core Skills, interns start seeing their own couples, while receiving regular, supportive supervision. MCTC has four supervisors that interns work with, with one being assigned as their primary supervisor...

We expect our interns to commit and pay for the 4-day EFT Externship put on each September and Core Skills. Core Skills is an advanced EFT training consisting of 48 hours of training over 4 weekends (Fridays and Saturdays) starting a month or two after the Externship each fall. We offer a $100 discount for the Externship and $100 discount per weekend of Core Skills to assist our interns being able to attend. 


We accept 4 interns per year. We ask for a year long commitment starting in September of each year. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis starting on December 15th each year. We start interviewing in early January.
