ATIP
Attachment Theory
in Practice

EFT for individuals, couples and families

Emotionally Focused Therapy aligns perfectly with attachment theory as it provides proven techniques for treating anxiety, depression, and relationship problems.

Psychotherapy is most effective when it focuses on the healing power of emotional connection. Attachment Theory in Practice (ATIP) draws on cutting-edge research on adult attachment and provides an innovative roadmap for clinical practice.

ATIP is a 1-day introduction to Emotionally Focused Therapy and Attachment Theory for all modalities: individual, couple, and family therapy. This training will provide an outline of EFT from the ATIP perspective: emphasizing attachment / relationships and how the EFT Tango applies to all 3 modalities: individuals, couples and families.

More than just an introduction, ATIP provides the overall context of EFT and explains how the original “couple” model applies effectively as psychotherapy to families (typically engaging with dyads) and individuals (e.g., working with the individual and a younger / child self, or the individual and the inner experience of another person in their life).
