Transforming Shattered Bonds: Addressing Affairs and Attachment Injuries with EFT’s Attachment Injury Resolution Model

Instructor: Lorrie Brubacher, M.Ed., LMFT, RMFT

When: March 29-30, 2019, Friday 9-5 and Saturday 9-5
Where: Smith College Conference Center, 51 College Lane, Northampton, MA

This two-day workshop is an advanced master class in Emotionally Focused Therapy designed to address the “never again” moments that can interfere in a couple’s healing process.


These deep attachment injuries often surface as the content that never goes away, the apologies that never makes the mark, the incidents that resurface again and again no matter how much time has gone by. Lorrie Brubacher, M.Ed, EFT Trainer, has developed, together with Dr. Lillian Buchanan, an elegant and comprehensive treatment approach to effectively help couples resolve and repair these attachment injuries once and for all.

The Attachment Injury Repair Model (AIRM) is a necessary part of every EFT therapist’s toolbox, and Lorrie Brubacher will lead us through each step and intervention with a mix of didactic, visual, and experiential learning. Come join us in learning the roadmap for repairing relationships devastated by betrayal and bonds shattered by broken trust. A live consultation specific to an attachment injury is planned with a case presentation for role play as an alternative.

Working with the Echoes of Trauma in EFT
How Sharing Emotions Soothes the Traumatized Brain and Heart

With EFT Trainers Dr. Leanne Campbell and Dr. Kathryn Rheem

November 8-9, 2019 • Wellesley MA


Through teaching, video presentation, and experiential learning, you’ll see how to use voice, reflection, and deepening interventions to help partners make contact, stay in contact in order to assemble and distill, and then share vulnerabilities with each other in order to break the familiar yet dreaded feeling of emotional isolation, a common result of enduring trauma.
