Transforming Trauma with Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy

6.00 CE Hours Available

Emotionally Focused Therapy is a proven effective approach to couples treatment that prioritizes the repair of attachment bonds. This webinar introduces EFIT, Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy, which centers on helping individual clients shape a robust and resilient sense of self, able to resolve life-defining traumas.

EFIT shapes corrective emotional experiences in each session to restructure negative ways of defining the self, regulating and organizing inner experiences, and engaging with others. As in EFT for couples, attachment science offers a map that simplifies how we frame clients’ problems and shape their journey toward wholeness.
