Description

Recent surveys suggest that almost half of all couples can expect to face challenges associated with extramarital affairs (sexual and emotional) at some point in their marriage. As all couples therapists know, these attachment injuries are difficult to overcome, especially when compounded by feelings of devastation, betrayal, and a profound sense of loss. But take heart! As part of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), the Attachment Injury Resolution Model (AIRM) has been proven to be a powerful and accessible road map to guide repair, resolution, and a strengthening of relational bonds. In this recording, you’ll learn how to help couples recreate a safe haven and redefine a new narrative for their relationship.

  • Using the steps of the “EFT Tango” as a means of accessing and processing primary/deeper emotion 

Describe and demonstrate (with video) how to work with partners, both intrapsychically and relationally, to facilitate and carry forward healing/bonding moments as an antidote to the negative interactional cycle
