for Couples, Individuals, and Families

Presented by: Bruce Honeyman

This presentation will serve as an introduction to Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). With its theoretical underpinnings based in Attachment Theory, EFT works with emotion to construct corrective experiences that serves as the change agent in therapy. During this presentation, the therapeutic application of EFT will be discussed.

1.  Will be able to identify four types of attachment problems

2.  Will be able to identify how EFT works as an experiential type of therapy, using present process and emotion as the central change agent.

3.  Will be able to connect common psychological problems (such as depression or anxiety) to attachment distress and dynamics in relationships

4.  Will be able to understand outcome research supporting EFT
