Workshop – EFIT with Isabel Bristowe – Saturday 17 September 2022
EMOTIONALLY FOCUSED INDIVIDUAL THERAPY (EFIT) is an attachment-based model with interventions to Treat Trauma, Anxiety and Depression. The most obvious way that EFIT differs from modalities where attachment figures are present in therapy is that corrective dialogues focus on a client’s interaction with the therapist, or with representations of attachment figures, or aspects of self. It is important to note that, from an attachment perspective and a humanistic experiential perspective, the self is a process of constant construction which takes place in and is shaped by interactions with others. In all modalities EFT addresses self and system – it is inherently RELATIONAL.
The goals of EFIT are:
- to offer corrective experiences that positively impact models of self and other and shape stable, lasting change.
- to offer transformative moments where vulnerability is encountered with balance.
- to enable clients to move into the accessibility/openness, responsiveness and full engagement that characterises secure attachment with others.
- to enable clients to shape a coherent sense of a competent self that can deal with existential life issues and become a fully alive human being.
