Emotionally focused couple therapy 4-day externship training with Gail Palmer
297 Euston Road
What is EFT for couples?
Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) for couples is a short-term structured approach to couples therapy based on the science of adult love and bonding (attachment theory). Developed in the 1980’s by Sue Johnson and Les Greenberg, this highly researched and evidence-based approach helps couples to understand and respond to each other’s needs effectively. EFT concepts have been validated by over 20 years of empirical research as well as research on the process of change and predictors of relationship success. It is a scientifically proven method of resolving chronic and acute relationship conflict. Studies show that 70-75% of couples working with an EFT therapist move from relationship distress to recovery during the course of therapy and approximately 90% show significant improvements.
