Emotionally Focused Therapy
What is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)?
Emotionally Focused Therapy is an evidence-based approach developed by Dr. Sue Johnson. At its core, EFT recognizes that emotions are key to understanding and transforming relationships. This method focuses on creating a secure emotional bond between partners, helping them navigate challenges and build a more fulfilling connection.
Key Principles of Emotionally Focused Therapy:
Attachment and Emotional Bonds: EFT is rooted in attachment theory, acknowledging the human need for emotional bonds. The therapy helps partners understand and address attachment needs, fostering a sense of safety and security within the relationship.
Identifying Negative Patterns: EFT helps couples identify negative interaction patterns that contribute to disconnection. By recognizing these patterns, partners can work together to interrupt and transform them into more positive, supportive interactions.
Promoting Emotional Responsiveness: The therapist guides couples in expressing and responding to each other's emotions in a way that promotes understanding and connection. This process helps partners become more emotionally responsive and attuned to each other's needs.
