Using Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) to treat Individuals with an History of Trauma

Take a listen to Dr. Leanne Campbell's interview with Envision

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) has long been the gold standard for couple and family interventions. This science has deepened our understanding of love relationships and family bonds.

Not to be overlooked is the fact that EFT can also be used to address a wide range of symptoms in individuals who may be suffering from depression, anxiety, trauma and stressor-related disorders. Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) has now been formalized with the publication of Dr. Sue Johnson’s book (2019), Attachment Theory in Practice: Emotionally Focused Therapy with Individuals.

By using Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT), therapists can help their clients learn to become more aware of their emotions and become more adept at using the information that is provided by those emotions.

This proven therapeutic approach will be the center of discussion in an upcoming workshop with Dr. Leanne Campbell, Psychologist and Certified EFT Supervisor & Trainer. Envision has invited Dr. Campbell to deliver a workshop on November 30th that will outline the theory and practice of EFT in working with individuals who are struggling with trauma. During her presentation, Dr. Campbell will show videos of clients' sessions so that attendees can see first hand how EFT with individual clients looks like.

This workshop will focus on understanding the impacts of trauma and core models of health and dysfunction from an attachment perspective. Dr. Campbell will define the three stages of therapy that clients move through as barriers to growth are removed and the seeds of secure attachment are sown. She will also review the systematic sequence of interventions, also known as the EFT Tango and provide therapists with additional micro-interventions.

By the end of this workshop, therapists will be able to start implementing moves of the EFT Tango to shape corrective emotional experiences in clients.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn the theory and practice of EFT in working with your clients who are struggling with the echoes of trauma.
