Course Description:

Finally, there is a map offered to us by attachment science to work in an organic, on-target way to help clients with trauma, anxiety and depression.

To that map, add the wisdom of 30 years of clinical experience and outcome studies on Emotionally Focused Therapy and you have the right way to tune into clients’ emotions and help them shift from numbing or agitation into emotional balance and the ability to trust the self and engage fully with others.

Known for her ground-breaking intervention – Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy – Dr. Sue Johnson will show you the set of proven interventions to shape transformational emotional moments for your individual clients in every session.

Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) will transform your clinical work by giving you:
  • A structured, on-target, effective roadmap for helping clients
  • Resolution for clients’ depression, anxiety and posttraumatic stress
  • A more integrated coherent sense of self
EFT takes you to the heart of the matter in just 5 clear macro-interventions. The goal is not to simply modify symptoms, but to grow people into full, flexible aliveness.

You will leave with your own blueprint for EFT that you can use across modalities – with a single client, with a distressed couple or with a family in crisis.

Sign up today, and leave feeling re-energized knowing your new skills will set your clients on a sure path to healing.
Objectives:
  1. Build core emotional experiences to promote emotional balance in your traumatized, anxious and depressed clients.
  2. Evaluate the EFT model as a secure base for effective therapy with individual clients.
  3. Analyze the three stages of the EFT model as an approach that offers clients a way out of destructive patterns.
  4. Implement evidence-based stages to increase closeness, safe attachment and connection.
  5. Investigate how EFT explores and deepens emotions with clients in a way that maintains safety.
  6. Construct corrective emotional experiences for the individual client that create real forward movement in a single session.
  7. Develop client interactions that expand the client’s sense of self and open engagement with others.
  8. Support the client’s sense of competence and worth in every session.
