Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy for Clients Dealing With Infidelity
In Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy for Clients Dealing With Infidelity, Sue Johnson demonstrates this experiential, integrative approach for helping couples deal more effectively with feelings of distress and negative interaction patterns so that they may restore trust and develop more secure attachment bonds.
Emotionally focused couple therapy centers on emotions and how partners communicate their emotions to one another. This is a collaborative approach in which the therapist focuses on sitting with the couple as they make sense of their emotions, creating a secure base that facilitates the forgiveness process and the sharing of core fears and needs. The ultimate goal of therapy is to help couples to learn to speak in a direct and open way about their feelings so that they may state their needs and develop a deeper, richer attachment bond.
