Stop fighting and fall back in love, starting today
If you and your partner are struggling to communicate and connect, you are not alone. The Couples Therapy Workbook for Healing is a helpful toolkit containing expert advice and activities to help both of you cultivate stronger attachment bonds and greater relationship satisfaction through Emotionally Focused Therapy.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is built on practical, concise steps for recognizing and disrupting negative behavior patterns. This couples therapy workbook uses those principles to help you develop the tools to approach your relationship with curiosity, open-mindedness, and readiness to speak, listen, and heal.
The Couples Therapy Workbook for Healing includes:
- A three-part process—Organized to follow the process of EFT, this couples therapy workbook begins by identifying the distress in your relationship, then navigating the emotions that are causing it, and moving toward positive, long-term change.
- Explore your relationship—This couples therapy workbook offers insightful questions, revealing exercises, self-assessments, and even case studies from other couples who have had success with these techniques.
- Beyond EFT—You’ll also learn about the different ways people form attachments, the power of intimacy and vulnerability, and ways to savor your best moments.
If you’re looking to reconnect emotionally and overcome relationship obstacles, The Couples Therapy Workbook for Healing can help.
