Live Event – Individual EFT in Action: Shaping a Secure Sense of Self

Live Event – Individual EFT in Action: Shaping a Secure Sense of Self

This workshop introduces EFIT, Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy, the individual therapy version of the famous EFT couple model. This attachment-based, experiential model allows the therapist to confidently restructure the client’s habitual way of constructing moment-to-moment experience and regulating their most difficult emotions. EFIT focuses on helping clients shape a coherent, resilient, secure sense of self, able to explore and resolve the deeper emotional pain underlying depression, anxiety, and the echoes of trauma. As in EFT for couples, attachment science offers the EFIT therapist a map that clarifies the nature of client problems and symptoms, specifying the steps in the journey towards emotional balance and the corrective emotional epiphanies that are the essence of significant and lasting change in psychotherapy. EFIT offers the therapist an empirically-based, on-target, deeply meaningful pathway to growth and the development of aliveness, showing the therapist how to systematically attune to, and move the client into new models of self and other – into a sense of belonging and becoming.

Worry, Panic, & Phobia: Evidence-Based Approaches to Alleviate Anxiety

Worry, Panic, & Phobia: Evidence-Based Approaches to Alleviate Anxiety

This course is part of our Anxiety & OCD Certificate Program. To unlock this course *AND* get certified in Anxiety & OCD Diagnosis & Treatment, navigate here >>

M

Worry is transdiagnostic and is frequently the seed of depressive disorders and more severe anxiety disorders. Therefore understanding the nature of worry and how to treat it is paramount for all mental health care providers. People often worry their way into a panicked state, which is not the same as suffering from a true panic attack; likewise the treatment approaches are different. Anxiolytics, usually benzodiazepines, negatively reinforce anxiety and thereby potentiate the fear of panic attacks, while only treating the symptoms. These are among the reasons that cognitive-behavioral approaches are literally twice as effective as medication in treating panic. Panic attacks are common amongst people who have phobias, therefore it is sometimes necessary to address panic attacks when treating phobias.  

This seminar includes active engagement, demonstrations, film clips, case examples and humor to teach you evidence-based approaches to help all of your clients worry and stress less. You will learn more about the nature of panic attacks, worry, and anxiety as well as the concomitant treatment approaches to alleviate generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder and specific phobia.

d). Name and learn to practice seven types of exposure therapy.
