Description

With all the hundreds of models and interventions practitioners use and the vast range of disorders they treat, attachment science offers therapists a coherent framework for understanding clients’ problems and leading them home to balance, agency, and connection with others.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), epitomizes attachment-based intervention and can be used in all modalities—not just in a couples therapy context. This paradigm offers specific and on-target principles of intervention for clients struggling with depression, anxiety, and distressed relationships.

In this workshop recording, using video clips of sessions and short exercises, we’ll explore how these principles can be applied in individual, couple, and family sessions to ultimately transform both self and system.
