    I listened to Sue Johnson once more. I enjoy her presentation as she presents her theory by combining both research data and examples from her practice.
    i would love to hear more examples of her specific interventions in the right momement.

  2. James B says:

    Sue Johnson and EFT just make sense…by going to the attachment feelings and emotions behind “the problem”, creates empathic understanding, which creates the safety to be vulnerable. It seems that if we can connect at the level of our basic needs, and feel safe doing so, we can work through anything. Perhaps EFT should be part of international negotiations, too : )
    I’m so glad to learn about her work and how to bring this depth of connection to couples.

  3. Fiona Glover says:

    Sue Johnson’s interview provides much valuable information on the topic of sex and attachment. It’s put into perspective the case of a male client who was adopted as an infant and abused as a child. Needless to say his relationships in adult life have not been successful in spite of receiving years of counselling. I now see that EFCT techniques may offer him a lifeline to recovery.

  4. dgperms says:

    It does make so much sense and I can’t wait to learn more. I’ve wanted a better roadmap for going deeper with couples than the standard conflict/communication training. Sue was incredibly articulate and I learned a lot.

  5. Frances says:

    Once again I am wowed by Sue Johnson. EFT makes so much sense. Once trust is created, couples just naturally open up and let themselves be vulnerable with each other. I bought Sue’s books but am seriously considering attending one of her workshops when she comes to my city. Thank you for another excellent presentation.

  6. HI Magdelini – there are lots of specific suggestions in the literature – I would look at the article in JMFT a few years ago that I and Zuccarini wrote on sex and attachment. All articles and chapters are on the site –
