Types of Treatment: Emotionally Focused Therapy
What is emotionally focused therapy?
This research-based approach is considered the gold standard in treatment of couples and also has been adapted for families and individuals. The EFT therapist helps people identify attachment patterns (longings for intimacy, safety, security) by focusing on unexpressed emotions that may be impeding the relationship. When couples learn how to communicate their needs to their partners, it can change the relationship into one that is more secure and nurturing.
