Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples Externship

   I have to share with you my recent experience at an exciting Externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples with Sue Johnson, EdD and George Faller, LMFT. I already use EFT with individuals in my brief pastoral therapy practice (for over 10 years), and now see how to use this powerful approach with couples. The externship included live sessions with discussions afterwards, exercises and great introductions to the research basis and practice of EFT with couples.
   I'll continue to use the really effective ways I know to help couples achieve better relationships and I'll apply the latest research on creating strong, enduring positive change in couples lives. During the workshop, Sue claimed that we are finally coming to have a science of love, and I think she is really on to something!
