Sue Johnson (2009) Patsy and Josh are a volunteer couple, already in Emotionally Focused Therapy. They are further helped through an EFT session with Sue Johnson. Patsy, suffering from deep wounds of the past, is vulnerable and fearful, and often shuts down—even though she knows her actions prevent connection with Josh. Her husband tries to be caretaker and nurturer. Johnson helps them stay with emotion, expand their connection and shapes their interaction bringing both to a safer, more loving place.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe how EFT can be used with partners with attachment injuries.
  2. To list three of the main elements in Emotionally Focused Therapy.
