EFT Therapy aims to help individuals, couples and families better identify, experience, accept, and manage their emotions. The emotion regulation skills taught in EFT therapy allow people to become more skillful in processing the personal insights their emotions provide so they can use that information to become more emotionally adaptive. In EFT sessions, participants are encouraged to face underlying emotions in order to better process and change them.
EFT couples therapy and family therapy techniques operationalize the principles of attachment theory to help people better accept, regulate, understand, and express their emotions. Understanding attachment needs in one’s self and in those we’ve formed emotional bonds with helps to strengthen intimate relationships.
