Healing Wounds and Building Bonds

Deepening Emotional Engagement of the Couple

Friday, July 12, 2024


This is our seventh and final workshop of a monthly online series on Emotionally Focused Therapy Foundations. We will focus on helping the couple to deepen their emotional engagement with each other as a way to heal wounds and build bonds. How are vulnerability and existential fear keys 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?
