Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy: Applying Attachment Theory in Clinical Settings

6.00 CE Hours Available

EFT lead developer Sue Johnson introduces the transformative power of working with attachment patterns into the counseling of individuals. Based on her newest book, Attachment Theory in Practice, this workshop explores the idea that clients need to connect with others and that this need shapes their neural architecture and consequently their everyday emotional lives and vulnerabilities, and significant interpersonal dramas. Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) provides an integration of experiential and systemic interventions that create corrective emotional experiences.

This workshop outlines the theory and practice of EFIT. Participants will learn about core models of health and dysfunction from an attachment perspective, including how growth and adaptation can be blocked. By focusing on the primacy of emotion and how to create a safe haven and secure base alliance, participants will learn how to stay with present processes in session to shape key change events. Dr Johnson will accompany her lecture and discussion with recorded EFIT sessions and experiential exercises.

All orders include the entire presentation with handouts and a CE test.
