This DVD shows one couple progressing through the change process in EFT, from a destructive cycle of blame / withdraw to emotional engagement and the creation of a more secure bond. Excerpts from various sessions are re-enacted along with therapist commentary.
Key interventions used in EFT are shown. An excerpt of the first session assessment and the identification of the couples’ negative cycle follows. Excerpts from sessions eight and twelve illustrate the process of re-engaging the withdrawn partner in the relationship. A key change event in EFT, softening the more hostile partner, is shown in session 14, and excerpts from session 15 and 17 illustrate how this change is integrated and treatment terminated. The DVD runs for approximately 95 minutes and is taken from real therapy transcripts. These transcripts are illustrated by actors to protect the identity of the couple.
