Attachment Theory in Practice: Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) with Individuals, Couples, and Families
From the bestselling author of Hold Me Tight — a revolutionary understanding of why and how we love, based on cutting-edge research.
Drawing on cutting-edge research on adult attachment–and providing an innovative roadmap for clinical practice–Susan M. Johnson argues that psychotherapy is most effective when it focuses on the healing power of emotional connection. The primary developer of emotionally focused therapy (EFT) for couples, Johnson now extends her attachment-based approach to individuals and families. The volume shows how EFT aligns perfectly with attachment theory as it provides proven techniques for treating anxiety, depression, and relationship problems. Each modality (individual, couple, and family therapy) is covered in paired chapters that respectively introduce key concepts and present an in-depth case example. Special features include instructive end-of-chapter exercises and reflection questions.
