EFiT
Emotionally Focused
individual Therapy

A revolutionary attachment-based approach to individual therapy

“Over the lifespan, the need for connection with others shapes our neural architecture, our responses to stress, our everyday emotional lives, and the interpersonal dramas and dilemmas that are at the heart of those lives.”
— Attachment Theory in Practice, p. 5, 2019

EFiT is an attachment science-based approach to individual therapy that, like the other EFT interventions, offers an integration of humanistic experiential interventions focused on reshaping intrapsychic experience and systemic interventions focused on reshaping patterns of engagement with significant others. Emotion is given precedence because of its powerful role in structuring inner experience, motivation, and key interactional patterns in relationships. Emotion links and organizes core experience and interaction.

Emotion moves people. Understanding the intuition of emotion and how to use it to create potent and sustainable change moves both the client and therapist. Sessions become more focused and effective. Corrective emotional experiences transform, shift perspectives, shift thoughts about self, about trust, confidence and competence. It is an organic process: when emotions are tapped into and used effectively, a shift in thoughts naturally follows.

Emotion is a reliable guide post, and the destination is clear: secure attachment. The lens of attachment helps us to see and understand individuals in context. EFT provides us with the tools, a roadmap, to help each individual achieve a secure connection with themselves and their most important relationships.

Modality

Individual Therapy

Features

This workshop is presented live-online and includes:

  • Didactic presentations accompanied by recorded EFiT client sessions and experiential exercises.
  • An outline of the theory and practice of EFiT, focusing on the primacy of emotion and the creation of a safe haven and secure base alliance.
  • An exploration of core models of health and dysfunction from an attachment perspective including how within and between cycles interact and block growth and adaptation.
  • A systematic sequence of interventions (called The EFT Tango) as well as numerous micro-interventions.
  • Techniques to stay with present processes in session and shape key change events.

EFiT Course Objectives

  • To offer corrective emotional experiences that positively impact models of self and other and shape stable, lasting change.
  • To offer transformative moments where vulnerability, that is “frightening, alien and unacceptable emotion,” is encountered with balance.
  • To validate the client’s sense of competence and worth in every session.
  • To enable clients to move into the accessibility/openness, responsiveness and full engagement that characterizes secure attachment with others.
  • To enable clients to shape a coherent sense of a competent self that can deal with existential life issues and become a fully alive human being.

EFiT Lv1

Participation in EFiT Level 1 will enable you to:

• Describe the key elements of the attachment perspective on personality and its significance for clinical intervention

• Set out clients within and between cycles and how they create each other and link to presenting problems that manifest as emotional disorders

• Describe the core components of emotional disorders – depression and anxiety

• Outline the process of change and the elements of the EFT Tango such as affect assembly and deepening

• Describe the micro-interventions used by the EFT therapist

• Outline the applicability of EFiT for different clients with different symptomatology.

EFiT Lv2

Participation in EFiT Level 2 will enable you to:

• Adopt an attachment humanistic perspective on clients, problems and interventions

• Discover and distil core emotional experiences and promote emotional balance

• Outline protective, self-defining and interactional iatrogenic patterns

• Implement the 5 moves of the EFT Tango to shape corrective emotional experience and EFT micro-interventions.

• Choreograph dramas that expand the self and open engagement with others

• Integrate corrective emotional experiences into models of self and other

• Validate the client’s sense of competence and worth in every session.

The Level 2 objectives will be addressed in more depth and with more practice and discussion than in the Level 1 training and with more reference to specific kinds of clients and situations that participants find challenging.

EFiT Level 2 will build on and elaborate on Level 1 and is the final requirement for ICEEFT recognition of special training in EFiT. Participants are encouraged when they enrol to be prepared to pinpoint brief examples of places they become confused or stuck in the practice of EFiT and/or specifically in the Tango to bring into the training.

It is recommended that participants obtain and use the Becoming an EFT therapist – The Workbook, 2nd Edition, 2022 and complete the exercises in the EFiT chapter before or during the training.

Summary

Our EFiT program 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 they construct their inner emotional worlds 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.

Transform your practice and clients – immediately – with EFiT.
