Description

Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) has been found to be effective in working with couples who have undergone attachment wounds. This study aims to address the effectiveness of EFT with a parent-child dyad that has experienced an attachment injury. This mixed method study will explore impact of EFT with 10 parent/child dyads. Sessions will be digitally recorded and coded using the Emotionally Focused Therapy Coding Scale (EFT-CS). Data will also be collected through a post-therapy questionnaire. Results are expected to replicate past studies on using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy in resolving attachment wounds.
