Join world-renowned expert Dr. Susan Johnson to learn about attachment bonds and the positive impact of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). Learn about the corrective emotional experience of control when escalating negative interactions occur and why secure responsiveness and connection creates lasting shifts in relationship satisfaction.
Complete this program to learn how you can help clients shape new emotions and new interactions that change both partners and how they connect. We can, at last, shape the bonds of love. This workshop will focus on how the EFT therapist creates:
Safe haven sessions that foster exploration of emotion and interaction Shifts that de-escalate negative patterns and regulate attachment emotions The coherent integration of new, more primary emotions Interactions characterized by new ways of reaching for the partner
A.R.E. conversations, characterized by accessibility, responsiveness and flexible engagement are necessary and sufficient to reach EFT treatment goals. Case examples will be used throughout and simple exercises will be included.
