Nswers to questions regarding the use of EFT(Emotional Focused Therapy) by therapists.

***** Here are the instructions for this assignment, please let me know if you have any questions, this has to be done by December 6 so please make sure I recieve it that day as early as I can because I need to tun it in that afternoon. The books that you will need to use for help is the (Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love
~ Sue Johnson ) and (Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy with Trauma Survivors: Strengthening Attachment Bonds by Susan M. Johnson) and (The Practice of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy: Creating Connection (Basic Principles Into Practice Series by
~ Susan Johnson (Author), Susan M. Johnson)

Instructions: Please answer the following five questions in 6 double-spaced, typed pages. Your answers should be well written, organized, and clear.

You need not use formal citations or a reference list since because I am interested in your own personal thoughts as they indicate how you are integrating the information we have covered during this semester into your thinking and if you would work with couples. DO NOT JUST QUOTE SUE JOHNSON. USE YOUR WORDS NOT HERS. MAKE HER IDEAS YOUR OWN. I KNOW SHE INVENTED, DEVELOPED, AND MARKETED EFT and you are using her text as your source.

The primary criteria used to evaluate your answers will be: (1) your demonstration of your personal command of new information and (2) your ability to integrate this new information into your thinking and therapy.

Be sure to follow page limits. This means that you should use words judiciously and not capriciously. Just as in therapy, never say with more with what can be said with less. Be pithy.

(1) Drawing from the books you read for this course and from class discussions, describe what you have learned about the  role of the therapist or  use of self in EFT with couples. Explain how the  use of self fits EFT and your work with couples. (one page)

(2) What is your opinion of the research support for EFT? Be sure to consider both strengths and weaknesses. (one page)

(3) In your own words describe the process of achieving de-escalation (stage 1; steps 1-4) with couples. (two pages)

(4) Describe your way of addressing attachment injuries. (one page)

(5) Explain attachment theory as a way of understanding intimate adult relationships. (one page)
