"In Stepping into Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, Lorrie L. Brubacher contributes a valuable and much-needed resource for learning Dr Sue Johnson's model of emotionally focused therapy. Brubacher guides the reader on an intimate voyage into the practice of EFT by inviting us into the internal worlds of Emily, an EFT therapist, and three of her couple clients. This text takes a unique approach to exploring the method of EFT by building from experience in the therapy room to an explication of theory. Brubacher draws on the experience of Emily and her clients to clearly and succinctly identify the stages and steps of EFT, the therapeutic tasks and tools, and the markers for change. Added bonuses include an in-depth description of the EFT model for the resolution of attachment injuries and the application of EFT to working with individuals. All therapists, whether novice or seasoned, can benefit and improve their practice through this engaging and relevant read."-- (09/25/2017)
