The Attachment Injury Resolution Model (AIRM), developed and empirically validated by Dr. Sue Johnson together with Dr. Judy Makinen and colleagues, resolves attachment injuries that block the process of relationship repair.  

Extra-marital affairs are only one example of a relationship Attachment Injury. Many other events can have an equally devastating impact on the relationship bond. The construct of an attachment injury was first defined in 2001 by S. Johnson, J. Makinen and J. Millikin as a specific event “where one partner violates the expectation that the other will offer comfort and caring in times of danger and distress.”  

Lorrie Brubacher, M Ed, EFT Trainer, has developed, together with Dr. Lillian Buchanan, an Interactive Video Training Program in the EFT AIRM. In support of the EFT AIRM Training Program Dr. Judy Makinen writes, “You have made the attachment injury concept, which historically has been overlooked and/or minimized by therapists, come alive in a way that research can never do.” 

  • This workshop will bring the AIRM alive for you!
  • Observe and apply the steps and interventions of the EFT AIRM for repairing attachment injuries.
  • Leave with confidence to apply this wonderfully effective model in your work.
  • Heighten your Love Sense with AIRM’s map through the journey of repairing relationships devastated by betrayal and bonds shattered by broken trust.  

    Following the workshop participants will be able to:
    1. Clearly define what an “Attachment Injury” is and recognize markers of a relationship attachment injury blocking a couple from safe connection.
    2. Explicitly track and validate an attachment injury in the negative cycle in Stage One.
    3. Prepare a couple for the Stage Two Attachment Injury Resolution process.
    4. Apply the tasks and interventions of each step in the process for resolving attachment injuries.
