Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) is a special form of couples therapy integrating three approaches: attachment, systemic and experiental. It centers on love and emotion, and goes beyond bringing forth changes in communication or practical arrangements between partners. EFT wants to help partners regain access to their own and one another's vulnerable primary emotions and underlying attachment needs. The therapy aims to provide acceptance of these needs, and the possibility to fullfill those for the self and the other in a clear and constructive way. A couple's ability to do so will increase the sense of trust, safety, and intimacy within the relationship.
The tPeP (Journal Person-centered experiential Psychotherapy) is the scientific journal for Dutch and Flemish psychotherapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists, that work from, or are interested in a client-centered perspective.
