Instructor: Nancy Knudsen, LMFT
This workshop taught the basic concepts of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), an evidence-based approach that has been shown to be highly effective in helping distressed couples repair and create a secure bond. Based on an integration of structural systems theory and the theory of attachment and emotional bonding, EFT offers a roadmap to help couples stuck in a perpetual cycle of conflict to find their way back to loving connection. Weaving together the intra-psychic elements of emotional experience with the interactional component between two people, EFT offers clinicians a bridge between the individual and couple therapy paradigms.
