In remembrance of Dr. Sue Johnson

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Sue Johnson. Sue lived with cancer for three years and this journey ended on April 23, 2024. Sue was passionate about her work, her family and friends – and her dogs. She loved teaching and treasured her students. See her full obituary here.

Sue was one of the keynote speakers for the 2024 EFT World Summit. We will honor her work and her life, and her great work will be carried on by the many trainers and therapists she inspired. 


In a world of uncertainties, we all are struggling to keep our emotional balance.  People are migrating all over the world, trying to find shelter and safety. In numerous countries political, economic and social turmoil is going on. And we, as therapists, are also affected. Our practices are filled with people in need. A solid model has become an essential requirement for therapists to deal with life’s challenges. EFT is a model that gives us a roadmap and is our backbone.

In the upcoming World Summit 2024 we will explore the new developments in the EFT-model, EFIT, EFFT and HMT with attention for different groups and cultures. We aim to inspire and learn together to make this world a safer place!

Artist in Residence
Laura van Dolron

Laura van Dolron created her own genre of stand-up philosophy. Together with the audience she looks for what is beautiful and what could be improved. She uses the theater as a place to be sincere because she believes that there is already enough pretending in ‘real’ life. Laura van Dolron comforts and confronts. She wants to make her audience laugh and think. She shows that vulnerability is a strength that is needed in this world.

Laurs van Dolron will be with us during the whole Summit as ‘Artist in Residence’.
