Stepping Into Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy Book Description:

This volume will be of enormous interest and value to the growing number of people qualified both in the established and the new training societies for analysts and therapists, or studying to enter them. Within it theory and practice are closely interwoven, demonstrating how theories and models emerge, both from the study of earlier pioneering publications and from day to day experience, and are tested time and time again in the process of a group of practitioners accepting them as viable. An impressive and creative blend of the characteristics which this profession demands of its practitioners is in evidence here, combining originality with passion for their subject and the flexibility required to develop their own pattern of thought.'In the practice of modern analytical psychology it has become of central importance to reorganise, analyse and interpret projections and introjections of many sorts, the patient's transference, the analyst's counter-transference, and the dialectical interaction between the two, which is descriptively termed transference/counter-transference. Transference and counter-transference evoke each other; the patient's gradual acceptance of the analysis of those processes and his growing consciousness of the way they influence his relationships are facilitated by the analyst who can successfully blend his knowledge of archetypal forces, images and symbols with his experience of developmental factors.'- Judith Hubback, from the Introduction.

Created for Connection Book Description:

"Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." -- 1 John 4:8 Are you looking to enrich a healthy relationship, revitalize a tired one, or rescue one gone awry? Do you yearn to grow closer to God, and to further incorporate Him and His teachings into your marriage? We all want a lifetime of love, support, and faith. But sometimes we need a little help. Enter Dr. Sue Johnson, developer of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and "the best couple therapist in the world," according to bestselling relationship expert Dr. John Gottman. In Created For Connection, Dr. Johnson and Kenneth Sanderfer, a leading EFT practitioner in the Christian community, share Johnson's groundbreaking and remarkably successful program for creating stronger, more secure relationships not only between partners, but between us and God. The message of Created For Connection is simple: Forget about learning how to argue better, analyzing your early childhood, or making grand romantic gestures. Instead, get to the emotional underpinnings of your relationship by recognizing that you are attached to and dependent on your partner in much the same way that a child is on a parent, and we are on the Heavenly Father, for nurturing, soothing, and protection. The way to enhance or save our relationships with each other and with God is to be open, attuned, responsive, and to reestablish safe emotional connection. Filled with Bible verses, inspiring real-life stories, and guidance, Created For Connection will ensure a lifetime of love.

Hold Me Tight Book Description:

Heralded by the New York Times and Time as the couples therapy with the highest rate of success, Emotionally Focused Therapy works because it views the love relationship as an attachment bond. This idea, once controversial, is now supported by science, and has become widely popular among therapists around the world. In Hold Me Tight, Dr. Sue Johnson presents Emotionally Focused Therapy to the general public for the first time. Johnson teaches that the way to save and enrich a relationship is to reestablish safe emotional connection and preserve the attachment bond. With this in mind, she focuses on key moments in a relationship -- from "Recognizing the Demon Dialogue" to "Revisiting a Rocky Moment" -- and uses them as touch points for seven healing conversations. Through case studies from her practice, illuminating advice, and practical exercises, couples will learn how to nurture their relationships and ensure a lifetime of love.
