Attachment-based Interventions to Treat Trauma, Anxiety and Depression
Finally, there is a map offered to us by attachment science to work in an organic, on-target way to help clients with trauma, anxiety, and depression.
To that map, add the wisdom of 30 years of clinical experience and outcome studies on Emotionally Focused Therapy and you have the right way to tune into clients’ emotions and help them shift from numbing or agitation into emotional balance and the ability to trust the self and engage fully with others.
Building on Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy and the work of Dr. Sue Johnson, we will show you the set of proven interventions to shape transformational emotional moments for your individual clients in every session.
Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT), will transform your clinical work by giving you:
- A structured, on-target, effective roadmap for helping clients
- Resolution for clients’ depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress
- A more integrated coherent sense of self
EFT takes you to the heart of the matter in just 5 clear macro-interventions. The goal is not to simply modify symptoms, but to grow people into full, flexible aliveness.
