    Thank you so much Kathryn. I found myself marveling at the emotional intelligence you showed in your session. I have used EFT, read Susan Johnsons books and even went to one of her workshops. You session reinvigorated me in the use of EFT. I have a couple with whom I have been working for some months without much success. The woman has an entrenched pattern of anger and the man withdraws. Tonight I saw them again and I felt we made more progress than we have in months. David Riley

    Thanks Bill for a very enlightening interview. It shed some light for me on why I have had a tough time working with a few couples. I realize that I did not press hard enough on the assessment of whether we could even enter couples therapy. The mixed agenda I would say is the case more often than not, at least in the initial sessions.

    A question or Peter and Ellen. What are some ways that you have found helpful in engaging a male spouse who does not talk and is not very articulate about what is going on inside for him?

    i really found the presentation helpful as well. I have been working couples or only two years or so but I related to their admonition that the skills of individual therapy in some ways are less useful in the initial stages of couples therapy. I really can relate to losing control of the session in the initial stages. The need to be directive and to offer hope is so crucial for me ni the early sessions.
