“Over the lifespan, the need for connection with others shapes our neural architecture, our responses to stress, our everyday emotional lives, and the interpersonal dramas and dilemmas that are at the heart of those lives” (S. Johnson, Attachment Theory in Practice, 2019, p. 5). For those who have endured trauma, either in the context of their childhood environments, and/or as they have undertaken to serve their countries and/or protect their communities, the emotional toll is often significant, leading to various difficulties associated with self coherence and functioning, as well as capacity to manage emotion and interpersonal relations.
Trained by Dr. Sue Johnson in the early 1990s, Dr. Campbell has been working in the area of trauma and using EFT in her work with individuals, couples and families since that time. In this one-day training, with a focus on trauma, Dr. Campbell will provide an overview of the attachment perspective on personality (health and dysfunction), as well as a description of EFIT, including the EFT Tango and micro-interventions. Using a combination of didactic presentation, experiential exercises and demonstrations (i.e., viewing of EFIT tapes), the goal will be to provide participants with practitioner relevant information and experience that they can use in their individual psychotherapy work with clients who have endured trauma.
EFiT Learning Objectives:
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
Describe the key elements of the attachment perspective on personality, as well as common sequelae associated with trauma exposure and the potential impact of trauma on personality growth and development.
Outline key considerations in working with trauma utilizing EFIT with respect to case conceptualization, clinical decision-making and therapeutic pacing.
Outline the three stages of intervention in EFIT.
Outline the key elements of the EFT Tango.
Describe the micro-interventions used by the EFT therapist.
Understand the ‘How to’ of working with emotion within session in an individual therapy context as a means of facilitating ‘corrective emotional experiences’ that shape significant and sustainable change and promote further healthy growth and development.
