Product Description

This influential volume provides a comprehensive introduction to emotionally focused therapy (EFT): its theoretical foundations, techniques, and clinical practice. EFT is a structured approach to couple therapy that integrates intrapsychic and interpersonal perspectives to help couples create new, more satisfying interactional patterns.

Since the original publication of this book, EFT has been implemented and tested with growing numbers of couples in a wide range of settings. The authors, who codeveloped the approach, illuminate the power of emotional experience in relationships and in the process of therapeutic change. Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples is richly illustrated with case examples and session transcripts.

Endorsements

Greenberg and Johnson's description of the implementation of emotionally focused therapy is lively and abounds with clinical insights. Clinical material and transcripts are used liberally to illustrate points, and the balance achieved between exposition and illustration results in a highly readable text. The course of emotionally focused therapy is brought to life in a detailed case example that provides an almost palpable sense of the therapy.
-Contemporary Psychology

One of the strengths of this work is the clinical examples. The interactions of the couples, heard both in short and long excerpts throughout the text, underscore therapist interventions as well as bring the nine-step process to life. The authors clearly demonstrate how negative interactions and conflict are decreased and trust and intimacy are increased when EFT is integrated into couple therapy....Highly recommended for beginning professionals as well as experienced professionals who wish to review the process or add a new dimension to their practice.
