“Say More About That” Show Notes: Episode #43 – Why I love emotionally focused therapy and you should too

Jeff Guenther, MS, LPC on Dec 22, 2019 in Say More About That

Today I talk to Evelyn Schmechtig-Cochran, LMFT, an expert on emotionally focused therapy (EFT). We cover everything from what EFT is, why it works so well, what typical outcomes are for couples and what the flaws are. We touch on how EFT works with different cultures, what the biggest challenges are and if there are clients that might not benefit from EFT.

Questions and topics I discuss with Heidi in the episode:

  • What is EFT?
  • What makes it different than other couples interventions?
