Presenter: Dr Clare Rosoman

This four-day training outlines the theory and practice of EFIT focusing on the primacy of emotion and the creation of a safe haven & secure base alliance. It will explain how EFIT conceptualises health and dysfunction from an attachment perspective and will help therapists to identify cycles of emotion regulation “within” and cycles of interpersonal relating “between” that block growth and adaptation. Therapeutic change in EFIT is experiential and revises working models of self and other. This training will introduce therapists to a systematic sequence of interventions, the EFT Tango, as well as micro-interventions, that help the therapist to stay with present processes in each and every session and to shape key change events. Didactic presentations will be accompanied by the viewing of EFIT sessions and experiential exercises.

At the end of training, participants will be able 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
  • Outline the process of change and the elements of the EFT Tango to shape corrective emotional experience, such as affect assembly and choreographing engaged encounters
  • Describe the micro-interventions used by the EFT therapist
  • Integrate corrective emotional experiences into models of self and other
  • Validate the client’s sense of competence and worth in every session and promote emotional balance.

It is recommended that participants obtain and use the book A Primer for Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFiT), completing the exercises before or during the training.
