Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is designed for all mental health professionals and graduate students, pastoral counselors, and coaches. EFT is a short-term approach developed by Dr. Susan M. Johnson, founder of the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). It reflects the most recent research on the nature of relationship distress, adult love, and emotion. Emotionally Focused Therapy has revolutionized therapy in general. It is one of the most empirically supported models of couple therapy, is being taught all over the world, and is a must-know model whether you are working with couples, individuals or families.
