Pre-requisite: Essentials of EFIT or EFIT Level 1 & 2

This one-day training builds upon the Essentials of EFIT course (24hrs) and will review the EFIT interventions, such as the EFT Tango, as well as micro-interventions, in the context of working with clients with high levels of shame. We know that so many people who have experienced disappointing, neglectful, or distressing relationships with their attachment figures, especially in their formative years, go on to carry a legacy of shame and even a fragmented sense of self. This workshop addresses how to use the therapeutic alliance and the EFIT interventions to create safety in our therapeutic space and to create powerful moments of change and growth for our most shame-prone clients.

At the end of training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the protective function of shame and track this with their clients
  • Map their shame-prone clients’ cycles “within” and “between” that maintain their negative models of self and others
  • Use the 5-moves of the EFT Tango to create experiential engagement and corrective emotional experiences
  • Help their shame-prone clients to disrupt cycles of emotion regulation and interpersonal relating that perpetuate their negative models of self and other
  • Utilize the power of the therapeutic relationship and the therapist as a temporary attachment figure
  • Work with parts of self to create emotional epiphanies and opportunities for revision of working models
