Do escalated couples make you want to quit being a therapist? Join us as we explore those moments of greatest difficulty for couples, from still-face to high reactivity to despair and rage. Learn how to keep your focus and go deeper in the face of reactivity. We’ll explore, demonstrate, practice and integrate in an interactive, experiential way.

Through a combination of lecture, videotaped session samples, and exercises, participants will learn to better conceptualize EFT and to help couples recognize and deescalate problematic cycles of interaction. Participants will also learn to help couples create or restore the emotional bond between them once the negative cycle, and the attachment needs that drive it, has been understood.


  • Identify the key assumptions of attachment theory as it applies to adult relationships. 
  • Identify the stages, and steps of EFT, as well as key change events.
  • Articulate key interventions that help clients to reprocess key emotional responses.
  • Identify common therapeutic impasses in EFT and how to address them and implement EFT interventions in clinical exercises and case examples.
  • Describe the function of protective strategies that create negative cycles.
  • Identify the positive cycle of responsiveness to replace the escalated, negative cycle.
