Emotional Transformation Therapy: The Blending of Art and Science
Lolita M. Domingue, M.S., LMFT
ETT was developed by Steven R. Vazquez, Ph.D. over the course of over 20 years of research on the visual ecology of the client. ETT intervenes using light and color to reduce the length of time which traditional methods demand. The presenter will show how the interpersonal relationship between client and therapist is integrally intertwined with attachment theory and will discuss accurate attunement with adult attachment presentations to create an effective therapeutic alignment to set the stage for accurate attunement with ETT.
A discussion of the triadic relationship between client, light, and the therapist as co-therapist with the light can significantly reduce or eliminate distress associated with relational problems, poor self-esteem, trauma and its resulting symptoms, addiction issues, anxiety, depression, and more. This work adds a dimension of depth and emotional access for clients that could only have been dreamed of in the past.
