Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples from Start to Finish

Live Zoom Webinar

CE Hours: 6


Workshop Description:

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a respectful and collaborative therapeutic model created by Dr. Sue Johnson, can assist clinicians who work with couples, families and individuals.  EFT is a cutting-edge, evidence-based methodology based on Bolby’s theory of Attachment and gives clinicians a map to make sense of relationship distress.

In this workshop, we will review videotapes of one couple from beginning to end and discuss the application of the EFT model and interventions through the Attachment lens.  Also, Dr. Johnson’s methods have been expanded to include Family and Individual therapy, and EFT is applicable to diverse populations (as evident in the video tapes). (Intermediate)


Learning Objectives

1. Identify four Attachment Strategies.
2. Summarize basic components of two insecure Attachment Strategies.
3. Identify components of a Negative Interactional Cycle.
4. Describe three EFT interventions to heighten emotions.
5. Explain the purpose of heightening emotions in Stage 1 of EFT.
6. Explain the purpose of heightening emotions in Stage 2 of EFT.  


      About the Presenter:

       Dr. Graham received his doctorate in Clinical psychology from Georgia State University in 1994 specializing in psychotherapy.  In addition to his private practice, he is a former director of Adult Services for “Georgia Highlands,” a Community Service Board serving Cherokee and Pickens Counties and a former Clinical Faculty at Georgia State University Counseling Center, where he supervised interns and post-doctoral fellows.  He has volunteered for Positive Impact for over 25 years, offering pro-bono therapy, training and supervision.

      Currently, his practice is primarily couple therapy and he is President of the Board of ACEFT, the Atlanta Center for EFT.  He is active in the training and supervision of clinicians learning the EFT model and has for over 6 years co-led Hold Me Tight weekend intensive workshops (based on Hold Me Tight by Dr. Sue Johnson).  Dr. Graham sees couple therapy not only as a modality to help troubled relationships but as an excellent modality for deep personal transformation.  Information about his practice is available on the web at
