Level 1

This two-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, core models of health and dysfunction from an attachment perspective including how within and between cycles interact and block growth and adaptation, a systematic sequence of interventions, the EFT Tango, as well as more micro-interventions, and how to stay with present processes in 2 session to shape key change events. Didactic presentations will be accompanied by the viewing of EFIT sessions and experiential exercises.

Emotion-focused therapy, whose effectiveness has been validated by extensive research, is based on attachment theory and neuroscience. This therapy was developed and developed by Sue Johnson, professor emeritus of psychology and psychiatry at the University of Ottawa and her colleagues in Canada for the past 30 years. First developed for couples and then families, this innovative model has been extended to individual therapy.

According to Johnson, psychotherapy is effective when it focuses on the therapeutic power of emotional connection within an attachment relationship. With EFIT / TICE, the therapeutic alliance allows the establishment of a secure link promoting better emotional regulation. Central attachment emotions are explored to create corrective emotional experiences, which enhance the relationship with oneself and others.

The therapist first helps the patient to discover and validate their internal emotional patterns which often undermine their well-being.

Secondly, the therapist, with the collaboration of the patient, shapes corrective emotional experiences aimed at transforming these patterns into new positive internal dynamics, promoting positive connection with oneself and with others.

Thirdly, by getting to know himself in this way, the patient has more confidence in his own strengths which become a sort of “guide for better living”. He develops the ability to create secure and satisfying relationships with others and increase self-confidence, in a new and positive dynamic between his inner and relational worlds.

EFT has ​​been proven to work with various types of patients in private practice as well as in university training centers and hospitals. It is performed in North America, as well as in many other countries in Central America, Europe, Africa and Asia.
