Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy: Applying Attachment Theory in Clinical Settings - webinar

Led by Sue Johnson EdD
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Monday, June 15, 2020, Live Broadcast Time: 9:00 am to 4:40 pm

**This webinar will be recorded. Registrants will receive the recording at the end of each day**

Over the last two decades, Emotionally Focused Therapy has revolutionized couples therapy by offering practical protocols for assessment, intervention and treatment based on attachment theory. Now, EFT lead developer Sue Johnson introduces the transformative power of working with attachment patterns into the counselling of individuals.

Based on Sue Johnson’s newest book, Attachment Theory in Practice, this workshop explores the idea that your 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 that expand your clients’ sense of self and interpersonal repertoire. Sequences such as the “EFT Tango” will help transform models of self, affect regulation and ways of engaging with the world.

In EFIT, clients gradually move into the willingness to be vulnerable, responsive and fully engaged with life—in other words, the characteristics of secure attachment.

Through a series of emotionally transformative dialogues, EFIT restructures your client’s interaction with you (the therapist), with representations of attachment figures or with aspects of self. It is a science-based approached found helpful for clients dealing with disorders such as depression, anxiety and PTSD.

This workshop will outline the theory and practice of EFIT. You 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, you will learn how to stay with present processes in session to shape key change events. Lecture and discussion will be accompanied by the viewing of EFIT sessions and experiential exercises.

You will learn to—

• Grasp the laws of attachment that structure the development of personality and their significance for clinical intervention
• Tune into and shape internal cycles of affect regulation and habitual ways of dancing with others that relate to presenting problems and emotional disorders.
• Identify the core components of emotional disorders such as depression and anxiety
• Implement the basics of the EFT Tango and other interventions
• Adapt EFIT for different presenting symptoms
