At the Heart of Intimacy

Susan Johnson on Helping Couples Heal from the Inside Out

Psychotherapy Networker
At the Heart of Intimacy

When a couple enters therapy to address sexual problems, are their fundamental issues confined to the bedroom?

Rarely, says Susan Johnson, originator of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT). Fear of intimacy, childhood wounds, and attachment issues are usually lurking in the background

In this video, Sue shows you how to help your clients safely explore deep issues of intimacy and connection from the inside out.

Susan Johnson directs the Ottawa Couple and Family Institute and the International Center for Excellence in EFT. This clip is taken from her session in our attachment video course:

When Attachment is the Problem
Expand your depth, range, and effectiveness as a therapist. You’ll learn to:

  • Identify when a client is suffering from attachment-based issues
  • Assess more accurately your clients’ different attachment styles and how to best address each one
  • Better tune into the powerful nonverbal dimension of therapy, including cues from clients and your own nonverbal communication
  • Create a safe environment for clients that enables you to establish a deeper therapeutic connection
  • Apply the principles of Attachment Theory with couples, children, and families as well as pain and trauma sufferers
