EFT is an effective, empirically validated model of couple therapy grounded in attachment theory. By conceptualizing relationships as emotional bonds, and harnessing the power of each partner’s emotions, the therapist helps couples attend to the basic attachment needs that underlie distressing and distancing cycles of interaction. Participants will be able to describe the EFT perspective and the basic components of an EFT therapy. They will also observe how to guide partners to access their primary emotion, and then use these more vulnerable emotions to create new interactions between couples. Using lecture, case material, and film of actual session and role plays, this course will demonstrate the EFT approach to fostering intimate relationships characterized by accessibility, responsiveness and emotional engagement.
