Explore the enriching journey of Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) through our EFIT Essentials training. This consolidated program is an amalgamation of our previous Level 1 and Level 2 trainings, now offered as a seamless, intensive learning experience. The training is structured to provide a solid foundation and an advanced understanding of the EFIT model, embedded within an attachment science framework. Through a blend of theoretical instruction and experiential exercises, participants will be guided to apply the model with individuals in their practice, fostering their growth as adept, attuned, and responsive EFIT therapists.

This 4-day (24hr) training event is a didactic and experiential program where participants will be invited to apply the principles and interventions of Emotionally Focused Therapy with individuals. The training will delve into the heart of the empirically-validated EFIT model, presenting a coherent framework for understanding individual emotional processing and change.

Essentials is our Level 1 + Level 2 courses combined

Level 1

EFIT teaches you how to tune into, order, and use the power of potent emotion to literally ‘move’ clients into a new sense of self. As client’s construct their inner emotional world in new ways, the results are an increased sense of competence and worth, a sense of secure connection with self and others, and diminished symptoms of emotional disorders.

Level 2

Deepen your understanding of EFIT while discovering effective ways to overcome barriers and obstacles to change. Delve deeper into objectives, with more extensive discussion and practice, and gain support for challenging clients and situations. Participants are encouraged to identify examples where difficulty in implementing EFIT and/or the Tango may occur.

Transform your practice – and your clients – with EFIT through this prerecorded course.

  • Sue Johnson
    Sue Johnson
    ICEEFT Certified Trainer and Founder

    Dr. Sue Johnson was an author, clinical psychologist, researcher, professor, popular presenter and speaker and a leading innovator in the field of couple therapy and adult attachment. Sue was the primary developer of Emotionally Focused Couples and Family Therapy (EFT), which has demonstrated its effectiveness in over 30 years of peer-reviewed clinical research.

    Sue Johnson was founding Director of the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT) and Distinguished Research Professor at Alliant University in San Diego, California, as well as Professor Emeritus, Clinical Psychology, at the University of Ottawa, Canada.

    Sue’s book, “Attachment Theory in Practice: EFT with Individuals, Couples and Families”, shows the promise of attachment science in terms of making sense of and repairing our most precious relationships and thriving as strong resilient individuals. Attachment science offers us the most potent model for therapeutic change, especially when dealing with anxiety and depression, and that, of all models of intervention, EFT most closely captures the essence of the attachment perspective. It targets the defining feature of survival-oriented human connection, namely strong emotion, and systematically shapes core bonding interactions with others.

    Sue trained counselors in EFT worldwide and consulted to the 65 international institutes and affiliated centers who practice EFT.
