EFT Foundations Series

Healing Wounds and Building Bonds

Deepening Emotional Engagement of the Couple

October 22, 2021


This is our seventh and final workshop of a monthly online series on Emotionally Focused Therapy Foundations. This workshop will focus on helping the couple to deepen their emotional engagement with each other as a way to heal wounds and build bonds. How do we create permanent change for a couple? What does that look like? How is vulnerability and existential fear  the key to deep bonding and connection? How do we create a new perception of self, partner, and the relationship for a couple to sustain connection for the long haul?
