A practical, down-to-earth guide to using the world's most successful approach to couple therapy

One of the most successful therapeutic approaches to healing dysfunctional relationships, emotionally focused couple therapy provides clients with powerful insights into how and why they may be suppressing their emotions and teaches them practical ways to deal with those feelings more constructively for improved relationships. Unlike cognitive-behavioural therapy, which provides effective short-term coping skills, emotionally focused therapy often is prescribed as a second-stage treatment for couples with lingering emotional difficulties. Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy For Dummies introduces readers to this ground-breaking therapy, offering simple, proven strategies and tools for dealing with problems with bonding, attachment and emotions, the universal cornerstones of healthy relationships.
An indispensable resource for readers who would like to manage their relationship problems independently through home study
Delivers powerful techniques for dealing with unpleasant emotions, rather than repressing them and for responding constructively to complex relationship issues
The perfect introduction to EFT basics for therapists considering expanding their practices to include emotionally focused therapy methods
Packed with fascinating and instructive case studies and examples of EFT in action, from the authors' case files
Provides valuable guidance on finding, selecting and working with the right EFT certified therapist
