Invaluable resource that walks clinicians through both the top-down knowledge of E.F.T. and the therapist's experience of implementing this model. The author's writing style is clear, concise and engaging. I highly recommend this book for anyone learning Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and those who wanted to hone particular skills who already utilize E.F.T.
