Description

Do you dread your couples therapy sessions?
Do you struggle with how to stem your distressed clients' anger and hostility?
Do you get tired of their emotional reactivity and lack of empathy?

Primary developer of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and best-selling author of, Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love, Dr. Sue Johnson, shows you how the EFT method illustrates the new science of love and bonding. Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) harnesses the new science of love and relationships into a structured, on-target, effective roadmap we can follow to take couples from disaster to safety and emotional connection. Not only will Dr. Johnson show you how EFT can heal relationships, but also how EFT can create relationships that heal.

Finally, we know why relationships matter so much, what goes wrong with them, and what's necessary for people to create secure, lasting bonds.

But you might be saying, "Sure, you can show me the studies proving that EFT works, BUT can you show me how to do it?"
The answer is...YES!

You will leave with your own blueprint for EFT that allows you, the therapist to be on target - to go to the heart of the matter and shape new interactions that redefine the security of the bond between partners and create an environment of healing and growth.

Adam K - MIDDLETOWN, Delaware

"Love EFT!! Thanks for the class."

Joanne K - Bath, Pennsylvania

"Well done."

TERRY M - SEDONA, Arizona

"This was an excellent presentation and presenter who knows her theories and how to put them into practice. She put together the three studies of Rogerian, Bowlby and Minuchen along with a bit of Gottman into a well-thought out theory of attachment into the system dynamics using Rogerian, Gestalt, Systems and Gottman strategies. I learned a lot. This was a great workshop not like my last with Cathy Bisset which was really awful. I was hoping for another quality one from PESI. Thank you!!!"
