Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy For Dummies

A practical, down-to-earth guide to using the world’s most successful approach to couple therapy

One of the most successful therapeutic approaches to healing dysfunctional relationships, emotionally focused couple therapy provides clients with powerful insights into how and why they may be suppressing their emotions and teaches them practical ways to deal with those feelings more constructively for improved relationships.

Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy For Dummies introduces readers to this ground-breaking therapy, offering simple, proven strategies and tools for dealing with problems with bonding, attachment and emotions, the universal cornerstones of healthy relationships. * An indispensable resource for readers who would like to manage their relationship problems independently through home study * Delivers powerful techniques for dealing with unpleasant emotions, rather than repressing them and for responding constructively to complex relationship issues * The perfect introduction to EFT basics for therapists considering expanding their practices to include emotionally focused therapy methods * Packed with fascinating and instructive case studies and examples of EFT in action, from the authors’ case files * Provides valuable guidance on finding, selecting and working with the right EFT certified therapist
