Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT) - Externship in Berlin 20.-23. September 2014

Welcome !

Dear Colleague    


• Do you know of situations in your work, when couples argue too much, get caught in seemingly unsolvable vicious circles, blaming each other, withdraw and cause pain? Would you like to have effective methods to help these couples?


• Are you looking for methods to restore effectively feelings of connectedness, emotional security and love between partners?


• Are you looking for a comprehensive theory that explains the intense emotions that may arise between partners, and do you wish to have a clear framework in order helping you to treat your clients?


• Do you want to be more successful and enjoy your work as a couples therapist even more?


• Or do you want to understand couple dynamics better in your work with individual clients?


Then you are exactly right here!


Welcome to one of the most effective and innovative methods in the field of couple therapy!


The Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT) (link Successful) has been developed in the eighties by the Anglo-Canadian psychotherapist Dr. Susan Johnson. EFT has become a worldwide success since then. EFT grows also in Germany. Last October, Susan Johnson gave a 4-day training in Hamburg. A great success!


Everything started when she as a young therapist and doctoral student (with Leslie Greenberg) and after having many frustrating experiences began to analyze videotapes of couple sessions. She found out that the strong feelings of the partners in the office that seemed unattainable for well-intentioned cognitive interventions, are to understood as an expression of primal anxiety that each of us carries within ourselves, namely to lose the other or the love of the partner. Susan Johnson realized that the attachment theory, supported by modern findings of neurobiology and emotion theory, provides a congruent and plausible theoretical framework. This resulted in a clear treatment model with three phases, nine steps and numerous interventions by which the therapist step by step supports the couple by gaining emotional security and shaping the restoration of their love relationship .
