Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT) is a structured approach to couple therapy formulated in the early 80's by Drs. Susan Johnson and Leslie Greenberg. It offers a comprehensive theory of adult love and attachment, as well as a process for healing distressed relationships. This experiential/systemic therapy focuses on helping partners restructure the emotional responses that maintain their negative interaction patterns.
Course Content - Externship (Module A)
This 28-hour externship provides the theoretical framework and practice of EFCT. The training would include demonstrations and practical exercises.
The learning objectives are listed below.
❖ Learn the theoretical underpinnings of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy.
❖ Understand the negative interactional cycle and explore underlying needs in a couple’s relationship.
❖ Identify primary emotions in couple interactions.
Strengths of EFCT
❖ Clear, explicit conceptualizations of relationship distress and adult love. These conceptualizations are supported by empirical research on the nature of marital distress and adult attachment.
❖ Change strategies and interventions are specified. The change process has been mapped into nine steps and specific change events.
❖ Research studies found that 70-75% of couples who went through EFCT moved from distress to recovery and about 90% showed significant improvements.
