Course Description:    Based on attachment theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a powerful, effective approach to help couples experience new ways of relating to one another instead of being caught in a negative cycle that breaks down communication and makes them feel unsafe and alone, questioning their love. By tuning into their feelings, a therapist using EFT can help couples learn to communicate during conflict in ways that restore a deeper, safer connection with one another rather than spiral into a repetitive “dance” that creates more hurt and insecurity. In this presentation, therapists will learn the basics of EFT and how to work with each person’s attachment style and corresponding reactive “push away” behaviors during fights. Therapists can then help couples learn work together to deescalate their destructive pattern so they can reconnect, heal past injuries, and restore their loving bond.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Attendees will be able to list the basic elements of Emotionally Focused Therapy, including the three stages of de-escalation, restructuring conflicts, and consolidation.
  2. Attendees will be able to describe how to track a couple’s repetitive dance by mapping each person’s attachment style and how predictable, reactive behaviors become triggers for the partner, helping the couple see the cycle as the enemy, not one another.
  3. Attendees will be able to apply at least two ways to explore beneath the surface emotions of a couple’s routine arguments, helping them access and voice the softer hurts, fears, and longings that will create empathy, restore safety, and draw them closer together.
