When the overwhelming vulnerability of trauma has warped your client’s sense of self and safety...

...returning to their past experiences – even in a therapeutic environment – can feel unbearable.

The result? Clients who avoid, shut down, or drop out of therapy completely.

But with Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT), you can provide the compassionate engagement and security your client needs to get to the heart of their trauma and move from stuck and suffering to healing and growth.

Discover how EFIT uses attachment science and a simple 5-step process to tune in to your client's deepest emotions and help them access lasting healing.

Whether you already have a go-to approach for trauma therapy, or you've been seeking a treatment that fits you as a therapist...

You’ll finish this training with the skills to confidently address your client’s most intense and frightening emotions and finally guide them towards greater emotional balance.

And now you can learn exactly how to apply this innovative modality in your own practice, directly from its developer, Dr Sue Johnson, EdD, and top practitioner Dr Leanne Campbell, PhD.

They’ll share a proven, easy-to-understand roadmap to create change and the knowledge and skills to build a powerful, healing connection through which your clients can reliably recover from trauma.



This online program is worth 6 hours CPD.
