Transforming Trauma with Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT)

Don’t miss this new training from Dr. Leanne Campbell, long term collaborator with Dr. Sue Johnson on applying EFIT, a new evidence-based approach, to the treatment of trauma.

Informed by more than 30 years of attachment science research and clinical experience, EFIT quickly gets to the heart of clients’ problems to guide them through their overwhelming vulnerability to healing and growth. And is now being used for trauma clients with excellent treatment outcomes.

There is no other individual trauma therapy available that is fully compatible and based in the attachment theory of human emotion... and you can be one of the first clinicians trained in this model.

Join master EFIT clinician Dr. Leanne Campbell as she demonstrates step by step the proven interventions of Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy – and watch extensive and heartwarming clinical videos, to show you the stages and steps of EFIT intervention to demonstrate the following:

  • Learn the therapeutic course of an individual client from the first stages of forming a secure attachment to the final resolution of an emotionally transformed individual.
  • Learn how to assess client readiness for each EFIT stage and the therapeutic steps to move them toward transformational emotional healing.
