Emotionally Focused Therapy for Individuals: Expanding the Self



Emotionally Focused Therapy is a well-known approach to couples treatment. But how can it translate to work with individuals? This recording introduces EFIT (Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy), which focuses on helping individual clients shape a robust and resilient sense of self, ready to move into what Carl Rogers called “existential living.” EFIT privileges emotion and shapes corrective emotional experiences in each session to restructure negative ways of defining the self, organizing inner experience, and engaging with others. As in EFT for couples, attachment science offers a map that simplifies how we frame clients’ problems and shape their journey toward wholeness. You’ll discover: 

  • The key elements of the attachment perspective on personality and its significance for clinical intervention 
  • The process of change and the elements of the EFT Tango 
  • Micro-interventions to gradually move clients into transformative moments where vulnerabilities are encountered with balance and competence 
  • The applicability of EFIT with clients suffering from a range of symptoms and issues
