The South Florida Community for EFT along with the International Centre for Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (ICEEFT) stands against all forms of racism and discrimination and condemn the abhorrent impact of systemic racism in our world, our societies, and at times in our own organization.

We are committed to listening, learning, and growing, so that we can better embody our values of inclusion, equality, and diversity. Our aim is to share our expertise and knowledge in the service of healing racial trauma, helping people value differences while affirming our common humanity.

By offering training scholarships, we are taking deliberate action to welcome and promote greater openness and compassion in all our endeavors with a particular effort towards inclusion, equity, and diversity. In all facets of our work we strive to embody what we hope to see in the world — just, loving humanity and community in which people are free to be themselves fully — where people can embrace their most basic universal human attachment needs without fear of persecution or marginalization as a result of religion, race, ethnic or national origin, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, class, mental health, physical character or disability.

These values are inherent in the attachment science and humanistic approach to intervention that all our work is based on. Specifically, humanistic approaches such as EFT are collaborative and respectful. We create a safe place for people and treat them as persons, not problems or types. Our approach is non-pathologizing in practice. Our values are inclusive and egalitarian while viewing human connection as sacred — something to be honored and cultivated. Our scientific and theoretical base outlines key universals, emotion, and attachment while respecting individual differences.
