Couple interventions in the 21st century: Shaping the bonds of love


Dr. Johnson will set out the principles of bonding science and illustrate how these principles provide a map to relationship distress and repair in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). The workshop will include didactic presentations, discussion of clinical issues, exercises and the viewing of excerpts from therapy.

At the conclusion of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Describe the key elements of attachment theory
  • Outline their relevance to the practicing couple and family therapist
  • Set out core interventions to shape secure bonding

Dr. Sue Johnson is an author, clinical psychologist, researcher, professor, popular presenter and speaker and one of the leading innovators in the field of couple therapy. Individuals, couples and practicing therapists all turn to Sue for her insight and guidance. She is the primary developer of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) which has demonstrated its effectiveness in over 25 years of peer-reviewed clinical research.

As author of the best-selling book: Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love, Sue Johnson has created for the general public, a self-help version of her groundbreaking research about relationships – how to enhance them, how to repair them and how to keep them.

Her recent book, Love Sense: The Revolutionary New Science of Romantic Relationships, a recommended reading for this workshop, outlines the new logical understanding of why and how we love – based on new scientific evidence and cutting-edge research. Explaining that romantic love is based on an attachment bond, Dr. Johnson shows how to develop our “love sense” – our ability to develop long-lasting relationships.

Dr. Johnson’s best known professional books include, The Practice of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy: Creating Connection (2004) and Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy with Trauma Survivors (2002).
