Emotionally Focused Therapy Step by Step (4-video series)
Over the course of Volume 1, Jorgensen gives a comprehensive overview of the steps, stages, and key interventions of EFT, honing in on the method’s emphasis on cycles and primary emotions. Volume 2 focuses on the steps, stages, and key interventions that lead to complete de-escalation. In Volume 3, Jorgensen outlines the skills, protocols, and interventions that lead clients to greater acceptance of their own experience as well as their partner’s. Finally, Volume 4 brings it all together with a discussion on handling common EFT challenges and impasses.
In each video, up to six actual couple clients sit with Jorgensen and her colleagues, and numerous bite-size vignettes illustrate the modality’s attachment-based rationales and experiential framework. You’ll see how its skills and techniques are applied to a diverse array of presenting problems, including couples whose partners share traumatic histories, along with interracial and immigrant couples. As they work, you’ll witness the power of EFT to help couples safely diffuse conflict and express themselves more authentically.
This volume is an invaluable resource for anyone seeking an EFT primer, solid tools for working with couples, or an understanding of the skills that enhance the therapeutic alliance. You’d be well advised to grab a copy today.

--Dr. Sue Johnson, developer of EFT; Director of International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy
"I never knew learning can be so much fun. Like a riveting movie, these master therapists engage us, and take therapists on an inspiring journey that will greatly increase their effectiveness and confidence in doing couples therapy. This is a must-see for every therapist working with couples."
--George Faller, LMFT, founder of New York Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy
The majority of therapy in the United states is individual therapy in part because therapists find the challenges of couple therapy overwhelming. This video course featuring Dr. Rebecca Jorgensen is the best, most comprehensive program ever developed to teach therapists a systemic way to understand, assess, and treat couples. Following 6 real-life, complex couples serves to make therapeutic strategies and techniques personal and concrete. This program will benefit both experienced clinicians and those in training. I give this program my highest rating.
--Barry McCarthy, PhD, author of numerous books on relationships and sexuality, and professor, American University
Each volume offers a focus on EFT’s attachment-based paradigm, along with an in-depth look at the key clinical tasks of each stage of the method. Interviewed by Victor Yalom, Jorgensen begins with an overview of Bowlby’s attachment theory, particularly as it pertains to relationships between partners. EFT is reknown for its emphasis on affect-based interventions, and here you’ll learn how to view couples’ needs through an attachment lens. As the series progresses, she further explains key interventions and rationales for alliance building and assessment, identifying the couple’s negative cycle, accessing primary emotions, and ultimately reaching a mutual narrative and roadmap for navigating conflict.
Jorgensen and her expert colleagues also present a series of vignettes from actual couple sessions with six sets of partners, in which they deftly demonstrate EFT’s phases step by step. Building on the concepts of previous stages of the approach, Jorgensen offers a thorough educational resource that will keep you engaged with each couple’s journey. Between creating and maintaining the therapeutic alliance, accessing and reformulating emotions, and restructuring interactions, the series gives you all you need to feel grounded and intentional with couples work.
If you’re in search of excellent EFT resources, you won’t do better than this video series. Be sure to add this to your library today.
