“Romantic love is not the least bit illogical or random. It is the continuation of an ordered and wise recipe for survival. We now have a map that can guide us in creating, healing and sustaining love. This is a consummate breakthrough.”
– Dr. Sue Johnson
EFT, as developed by Dr Sue Johnson, is a collaborative, structured, usually short-term therapy approach to working with couples, families and individuals that fosters the creation of secure relationship bonds.
EFT is a change process that facilitates movement from distress to recovery by transforming negative cycles of interaction into safe emotional connection between intimate partners and family members.
Based on the science of emotions and attachment theory as well as humanistic and systemic theories, EFT has a high success rate in achieving secure, resilient relationships in couples and within families, and in helping individuals to flexibly manage their emotional experience.
Sue Johnson and many others have written a weath of valuable information on Emotionally Focused Therapy, and newer works are always in development. For a list of excellent EFT books available now, follow this link.
