“Underneath all the distress, partners are asking each other: Can I count on you? Are you there for me? Will you respond to me when I need, when I call? Do I matter to you? Am I valued and accepted by you? Do you need me, rely on me?” - Dr. Sue Johnson, the primary developer of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

- See marital distress from an attachment perspective.
- Help partners reprocess the emotional responses that maintain marital distress.
- Shape key new interactions and bonding events.
- Overcome therapeutic impasses.
- Watch real couples in a demonstration sessions.
- Practice key skills and interventions with assistance and feedback.
Research studies find that 70-75% of couples who use EFT move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements.
"Throughout the externship you get hands-on experience with in-the-minute critiques from professionals who know exactly what they're doing and they are guiding you as you're trying out new skills. They give constructive criticism that is very helpful, and feels supportive and encouraging."
