Publisher's Summary

A practical, down-to-earth guide to using the world's most successful approach to couple therapy.  

One of the most successful therapeutic approaches to healing dysfunctional relationships, emotionally focused couple therapy provides clients with powerful insights into how and why they may be suppressing their emotions, and teaches them practical ways to deal with those feelings more constructively for improved relationships. Unlike cognitive-behavioral therapy, which provides effective short-term coping skills, emotionally focused therapy often is prescribed as a second-stage treatment for couples with lingering emotional difficulties. 

Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy for Dummies introduces listeners to this groundbreaking therapy, offering simple, proven strategies and tools for dealing with problems with bonding, attachment, and emotions, the universal cornerstones of healthy relationships.

Great Material Made Tortuous by the Reader

The EFT material is solid, but the reader is an amateur, and just ruins the experience. The reader has the most irritating habit of ending every sentence with an unnatural rising of inflection.

Awful narration makes this a tedious listen

The book is fairly good, with insights on understanding and processing your emotions.

Two things mar an otherwise fairly useful book.

First - the narration is just painful to listen to for any length of time. The narrator has this way of stressing the last word of a sentence and ending on a rising pitch which are just unnatural. The effect is maddening over time. Really, really awful.

Second - the book is repetitive, and seems to drag on endlessly.

Great book, awful voiceover.

The content of this book is the basics for anyone Incorporating EFT into there practice as a therapist, or who wants to include EFT as a form of communication within their relationship.
The format for dummies makes it easy to understand and practical.

However… Who ever hired this voice over actor should be shot.

Couldn't stand the narrator's drawn out voice

Really wanted to hear about the topics, but I couldn't get past the narrator's voice. I sped it up, slowed it down, listened to the same page over and over but I couldn't get into the second section at all.
