Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Another masterpiece! Sue Johnson and her colleagues provide us a most-welcome and very compelling EFT casebook that convincingly demonstrates how widely relevant EFT is to working with distressed couples." - Alan S. Gurman, University of Wisconsin, USA

"This new, exciting volume extends Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy beyond the treatment of general relationship distress to a broad spectrum of emotional and physical health concerns. This is a "must read" for every couple and family therapist and a treasure of clinical wisdom and practical advice." - Douglas K. Snyder, Texas A&M University, USA, and coauthor of Getting Past the Affair and Treating Difficult Couples

"This brilliantly interweaves theory and clinical examples as well as research and practice. It is filled with fascinating clinical examples that can help the therapist or student get inside the head of expert EFT therapists to conduct treatment and intervene effectively." - Jay Lebow, Northwestern University, Illinois, USA

"A treasure trove of creative and practical information on treating couples with a wide range of problems. Each chapter is valuable on its own, and together they make a remarkable compendium of the best wisdom of EFT." - William J. Doherty, University of Minnesota, USA, and author of Take Back Your Marriage

"This casebook is not simply a complement to current EFT literature; it is a thorough and comprehensive guide to the inner workings of emotionally focues therapy and its practical benefits." - Jacqueline Carleton, Ph.D., Somatic Psychotherapy Today
