Emotional Focused Therapy for Couples is a structured approach to couples therapy formulated in the 1980's by Dr. Sue Johnson. It has developed alongside the science on adult attachment and bonding to expand the understanding about what is happening in couple relationships.

Couples are usually caught in dreadful dances of negative interactions. In the process of EFT, the members of the couple learn how to get out of these negative cycles and amplify interactions where they create safe attachments. EFT is collaborative and respectful of clients combining experiential Rogerian techniques with structural systemic interventions.

EFT is based on clear, explicit conceptualizations of marital distress and adult love. These conceptualizations are supported by empirical research on the nature of marital distress and adult attachment. EFT has been validated by over 20 years of empirical research. There is also research on the change processes and predictors of success.

The mail goal of EFT is to foster the creation of a secure bond between partners, so that they can know and feel that their partner is there to support them. With this sense of security, persons feel freer to develop and grow in many areas.

EFT is being used with many different kinds of couples in private practice, university training centers and clinics throughout the world.
