Creating Secure Connection in Couples Therapy: An Emotionally Focused Approach



Volatile, emotionally escalated clients can be among the most challenging cases couples therapists regularly work with. Such clients can often be set off by seemingly negligible events, making sessions difficult for both partners and their therapist. Typically, core issues of attachment distress are at the heart of these outbursts. Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) offers a clear road map for working with such hard-to-treat couples by helping them access and share primary emotions. In this workshop, you’ll discover how to:

  • Differentiate each partner’s emotions in order to contain reactive emotion and evoke vulnerabilities
  • Recognize and assess each partner’s role in destructive patterns of interaction
  • Restructure couples’ negative patterns and stay in process when they become emotionally activated

Use voice, reflection, and validation to help partners share their deepest vulnerabilities.
