Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy: Creating Secure Connections

The overall objective of this presentation is to outline the fundamental principles of EFT, describe the basic interventions of the approach, and demonstrate how the basic therapeutic stance and tone that is used by the therapist is an essential method for working with vulnerable underlying emotions. Participants will have the opportunity to view a videotaped demonstration of this approach. Attachment theory and the methodology of EFT that I will present during this workshop are very useful when working with victims of trauma and their partners. The goal of EFT is to process the couple's experience and reorganize their interactions in order to create a stable bond and secure sense of connection.
