Susan Johnson – Using the Science of EFT with Individuals: Bringing Your Clients to Life and Restoring Their Ability to Live Well
Emotionally Focused Therapy is a well-known approach to couples treatment. But how can it translate to work with individuals? Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) will transform your clinical work by giving you a structured, targeted, effective roadmap for helping clients. EFT takes you to the heart of the matter in just 5 clear macro-interventions. The goal is not to simply modify symptoms, but to help people experience full, flexible aliveness. Use the power of emotion to make changes that last.
