Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy developed along with adult attachment, a theory of personality and intimate relationships. Attachment views human beings as innately relational, social, and wired for intimate bonding with others. The EFT model focuses on emotion and emotional regulation as the key factors in individual experience and relationship interactions. EFT also works to identify and change negative emotional cycles within relationships.
