Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy

2017-10-09 | Gabriella Kis
"EFT is a structured approach to couples therapy formulated in the 1980's and has developed alongside the science on adult attachment and bonding to expand our understanding about what is happening in couple relationships and to guide therapists." EFT’s main notion is that long-lasting relationships are based on attachment, and attachment is organized, shaped and sustained by emotions, like dance by music. As many other things, our attachment capacity comes from our childhood experiences. Often times in adult relationships basic childhood attachment experiences come forth, eventually childhood traumas also. But a good, strong, loving, longlasting relationship is able to rewrite, process childhood or preveious attachment injuries. Human relationships have healing potential. That is why it is wise to renew our close relationships from time to time or go to couple therapy if necessary.
