Title of Presentation Proposal

Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy: When Clinical Research and Clinical Practice Intersect

Presentation Type

Symposium

Abstract

Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT; Johnson, 2004) has increasingly become recognized as an effective approach to treat a myriad of relational problems. Recent reviews of the couple and family literature have reported that EFT is one of two empirically validated approaches to treating relationship distress (Lebow et al, 2012). This symposium will provide an overview of the approach, including video-taped sessions that demonstrate the interventions. A critique of the research to date on EFT will be provided, paying particular attention to evidence-based practice standards.
