NEW YORK CENTER FOR EMOTIONALLY FOCUSED THERAPY



Sue Johnson'S tour-de-force volume on EFT AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER!

Drawing on cutting-edge research on adult attachment--and providing an innovative roadmap for clinical practice--Susan M. Johnson argues that psychotherapy is most effective when it focuses on the healing power of emotional connection. The primary developer of emotionally focused therapy (EFT) for couples, Johnson now extends her attachment-based approach to individuals and families. The volume shows how EFT aligns perfectly with attachment theory as it provides proven techniques for treating anxiety, depression, and relationship problems.
