Overview

Since its original publication in 1996, this volume has been a helpful guide to therapists in the practice of emotionally focused therapy. This second edition addresses the many changes in the field of couples therapy, including updated research results linked to clinical intervention and new information on using EFT to address depression and PTSD. A new section covers the growth of couples therapy as a field and its overall relevance to the mental health field, accompanied by coverage of how recent research into the nature of marital distress is consonant with EFT. Other new features are a section on EFT and feminism, as well as a section on cultural competence for the EFT therapist.

Written by a leading authority on emotionally focused couples and marital therapy, this second edition is an up-to-date reference on all aspects of EFT and its uses for mental health professionals.

    The Essential Guide to Couples Therapy - a must read

    Dr. Johnson provides a clear, concise overview of Emotionally Focused Therapy, an empirically validated approach to couples therapy. She breaks down the research behind the model, how it was developed and why it works in the first chapters. The author then outlines the Stages and Steps in EFT, including key change events shown to facilitate healing and deeper connection for each partner. This book, along with further work in EFT, allowed me to provide couples in my therapy practice with a much more effective set of interventions based on attachment theory and the science of emotions. The book provides a way of understanding adult love, distress in couple's relationships, and a road map to help couples break conflictual and distancing cycles in order to connect in a deeper, more fulfilling way.
