Solving the Key Challenges of Couple Therapy with EFT

Workshop Description

Couple therapy can be a challenging modality for even the best of therapists. This workshop will address the key challenges and outline how they are addressed in EFT, a systematic, empirically tested model for on-target intervention. These challenges include, the creation and maintenance of a vibrant and secure alliance with both partners, dealing with partner hostility in highly escalated couples, de-escalating recurring negative cycles of interaction that perpetuate distress, shaping engagement in shut down partners, choreographing risk taking and crafting corrective emotional moments of secure bonding. This workshop will involve didactic presentation, the viewing of taped therapy sessions and an experiential exercise.


  • Understand the key goals and tasks of couple therapy and the key challenges for the therapist.
  • Outline how the EFT model fosters a secure base in therapy that shapes openness and responsiveness in clients.
  • Describe the core interventions in regulating extreme and over regulated emotion from an attachment perspective.
  • Set out how the EFT therapist helps partners de-escalate long standing patterns of negative interactions that perpetuate distress
  • Grasp how to effectively set up corrective in session bonding interactions in session that can transform self and relational system.
