Why Emotionally Focused Therapy?
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.
We are able to not only heal relationships, but to create relationships that heal.
For the first time in human history, 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 a resounding YES!
I can show you how you AND your clients can leave each session exhilarated and energized.
In EFT we have shown that we can help 70-75% of couples move into more satisfying and secure bonds. And in this course, I will show you how you can get these kinds of results in your office.
Hope to see you in the course,
Dr. Sue Johnson
"There's nothing more fascinating than relationships, and as you go into them, they just get more and more and more fascinating. Every couple I see teaches me something. I'm still as fascinated now as I was all those years ago."

Stage I In-session Demonstration — De-escalation
Explore Stage 1 of EFT with Dr. Sue Johnson and colleague Dr. Marlene Best during this in-session demonstration. Watch as they outline the negative cycle/dance that keeps their clients off balance and disconnected. You'll then see how they help their clients access and reprocess underlying emotions, especially attachment fears, which prime each partner's steps in their negative dance. Finally, you'll watch as the couple de-escalates their negative cycles and begin to create a secure base, preparing them for Stage II of EFT – Restructuring of Bonding Interactions.
Following the client in-session demonstration, Drs. Johnson and Best will discuss and analyze the session helping you understand how to apply EFT to your practice.
