Making Sense of Relationship Distress: An Introduction to Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy

Important relationships in our lives evoke strong emotions, both positive and negative. It is not uncommon for a therapist who hears about negative emotions dominating a love relationship, whether in the context of couple or individual therapy, to conclude that this is an indicator that the couple no longer loves one another or that the relationship isn’t viable. This is rarely the case. Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), with its grounding in an understanding of adult attachment, offers a radically different perspective. An evidence-based approach with a proven effectiveness rate, EFT provides the therapist with a way of understanding relationship distress and a way to work with it that is of tremendous value, whether you are a couples therapist or working with individuals around relationship issues.

This one-day workshop will introduce the basic theory of EFT and describe the EFT road map for how to move a couple from relationship distress to a secure bond.
