Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT) is a short-term structured couple therapy approach . This therapy is focused on negative communication patterns and love as a bond of attachment. EFT is used with many types of couples in private practices, university training centers and hospital clinics. It is also very useful with various cultural groups around the world. Distressed couples who can benefit from EFT include those in which one or both partners suffer from depression, addiction, post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic illness, among other disorders. EFT has proven to be a powerful approach for couples facing infidelity or other more traumatic incidents, past and present.
