cover image for A Primer for Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT)

This chapter from A Primer for Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) by the leading authority on Emotionally Focused Therapy, Susan M. Johnson, and her colleague T. Leanne Campbell outlines the ten principles of attachment theory and their implications for practice. The goals and specific strengths of EFIT are described together with the basic tenets of experiential models of intervention.

In EFIT, clients move from chaos to order, reactivity to balance, from self-abnegation to self-acceptance, from helplessness to agency. With the map offered by research on attachment and on change in psychotherapy, the therapist can move into on-target, focused interventions that lead the client home.
