Emotions focused Therapy (EFT)

A DRA. Susan Johnson (Canada) was one of the main creators of emotions focused (EFT) in the 1980s, a model based mainly on attachment theory developed by psychiatrist John Bowlby (England). It is an originally created therapy for working with couples, but can also be applied to individual and family therapy. As a therapeutic model, EFT consists of a systemic, humanist and experiential approach, as well as being considered a brief and directive therapy. It is an evidence -based therapy with over 30 years of strict studies and investigations that support its effectiveness and show how the improvements obtained are maintained over time.

to EFT, instead of trying to resolve or learn to negotiate conflict, it is an approach that seeks to explore and deepen vulnerable emotions and fears that were not expressed and that holds the couple in a negative cycle and recursive, enabling corrective emotional and interaction patterns that strengthen attachment bonds, emotional regulation, generating a direct impact on the emotional health of couples.
