Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT) is one of the best-validated couples interventions, and offers a comprehensive theory of adult love and attachment as well as a process for healing distressed relationships. It recognizes that relationship distress results from a perceived threat to basic security and closeness in intimate relationships. This experiential/systematic therapy focuses on helping partners restructure the emotional responses that maintain their negative interaction patterns. Through a series of nine steps, the therapist leads the couple away from conflict-deadlock into new bonding interactions.

You will learn:
– To understand the phenomenon of marital distress in an attachment context
– Creative powerful change events in therapy that foster a more secure bond between partners
– To deal with common impasses and difficult issues in marital therapy
– The steps of EFT that help couples to leave destructive, hostile, or defensive interactions, and share positive attachment that fosters secure bonding
