Description adapted from www.iceeft.com

We’ve included two short YouTube clips of Dr. Sue Johnson, the founder of Emotionally Focused Therapy, discussing her book Hold Me Tight, and the most dangerous signs of relationship distress. Sue’s work is on the forefront of couples therapy, and she describes some realities in relationships that may surprise you.

Travis has worked with Sue since the fall of 2006, and was supervised by her personally through advanced trainings in EFT. He recently completed a DVD training for couples therapists focused on the needs of gay and lesbian couples, where Sue shows her work with one gay couple, and one lesbian couple. Travis joins in the commentary with other EFT therapists about the couple. The DVD is one of the best examples of working effectively using Emotionally Focused Therapy.
