Workshop Description

          Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) is an attachment-based approach that extends Dr. Sue Johnson’s model of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFCT) to work with individuals. EFIT 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 both inner experience and motivation and in shaping key patterns in relationships. Emotion links and organizes core experience and interaction. EFIT helps you to create corrective emotional experiences in individual therapy to shape safety and security with others and within self.

 

          EFIT Level 2 is designed to: (1) build on and elaborate upon EFIT Level 1 training; (2) extend your abilities to practice Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy; (3) promote emotional fitness that is robust, resourceful & prepared to face existential dilemmas; and (4) provide the final requirement for ICEEFT recognition of special training in EFIT.

Prerequisite:  EFIT Level 1 completed

Helpful Preparation for Training:

1. A Primer for EFIT (Johnson & Campbell, 2022)

2. The EFIT chapters in Becoming an Emotionally Focused Therapist:  The workbook (end edition 2022, Furrow et al)
