Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT)
Emotionally Focused Therapy is a structured approach to couples therapy formulated in the early 1980's by Drs. Sue Johnson and Les Greenberg. A main objective of EFT is for couples to complete treatment with strong feelings of connection and safety in their relationship. A major goal is to "re-organize" emotional responses to create secure bonds between partners. With EFT, couples will learn to interact and connect in constructive and fulfilling ways. Research has found that about 70-75% of couples involved with EFT move from distress to recovery and 90% show significant improvement which is backed by over 20 years of practical research (www.iceeft.com). It is effectively applied to various types of relationship problems.
