Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples is a research-based therapeutic approach designed to enhance the emotional connection between partners. Rooted in attachment theory, EFT helps couples identify and restructure negative communication patterns, fostering a secure emotional bond. Therapists guide couples through understanding and expressing their emotions, promoting empathy and responsiveness. EFT typically involves three stages: de-escalation of conflict, restructuring negative interaction patterns, and consolidation of new emotional bonds. By creating a secure base for emotional exploration and vulnerability, EFT aims to build lasting intimacy, trust, and resilience in couples, promoting healthier relationship dynamics and a deeper understanding of each partner’s needs.
