Emotion Focused Therapy for Individuals and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) is a structured approach to couples counseling formulated in the 1980’s by Dr. Susan Johnson and Dr. Leslie Greenberg that integrated the emerging science on adult attachment and the importance of different types of emotional expression that bring couples closer or tear them apart. A substantial body of research outlining the effectiveness of EFT now exists.

Dr. Johnson and Dr. Greenberg eventually went their separate ways, with Dr. Johnson continuing to refine the EFT approach to couples counseling and Dr. Greenberg focusing more on EFT approaches in individual therapy.

Research studies find that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements.
