LMFT Laura Barbeau’s Perspective on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples and the book Hold Me Tight

I was really impressed, when I read the book Hold Me Tight by Sue Johnson.  This is not your ordinary couples self-help book but is instead a research-based handbook for couples looking to work on their relationship and looking to learn how to make a better connection and avoid old patterns of relationship conflict.  I was curious to learn more, because it seemed like a really helpful and important book.

The video below is a Skype conversation that I had with Laura Barbeau, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT).  She uses Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) in her therapy practice and she also teaches a course on EFT based on the book Hold Me Tight.

The class consists of around 8 sessions, 2 hours long each, that discuss the chapters of the book in a group setting. Here, couples converse about issues with the whole class, leaving less time to focus on insignificant details and more time to solve the root of problems that apply to so many couples. Laura believes conflict is present in any relationship and finding a healthy way to approach problems is a skill that will inevitably be useful to any couple.
