About the Presentation:
Infidelity is one of the common reasons for divorce and is a frequent theme in couple therapy. Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy can help couples seeking therapy to heal their relationship after an affair. Infidelity in most cases is a threat to any relationship and can damage the stability of the relationship. EFT therapists conceptualize affairs as “attachment injury” – a violation of trust that questions the basis of a relationship. By focusing on the key emotions and their attachment significance, EFT can help couples heal and form a secure attachment bond after an affair. This workshop will explore attachment injuries along with the EFT approach to resolving them.
