A corrective emotional experience of responsiveness and connection is necessary and sufficient to create lasting shifts, not only in relationship satisfaction but also in attachment security in couple therapy. Therapists can shape new emotions and new interactions that change both partners and how they connect. We can, at last, shape the bonds of love.
- Describe the key conversation that shapes bonding experiences.
- Explain how and why this conversation is transformative.
- List the interventions used to create this change in EFT
