EFIT Series – Video 6

Session 6 (hours 10 and 11): This final session provides an example of Stage 2 reprocessing of emotional experience – leading to reshaping attachment security and shifting internal working models of self and other. With an imaginal encounter with the abusive ex-boyfriend, we work through the complex emotion of emotional hurt - first the anger and the fear - and eventually the sadness and the grief of this traumatic relationship injury. The final part of this session is a summary, integration, and consolidation of the shifts she is making internally and interpersonally across relationships, processed in the 11 hours of therapy. We summarize how she wants to take this forward into her life and into her work with her regular therapist. A year later she confirms these shifts in sense of self and other have endured.
