Pulling on the Heart Strings: An Emotionally Focused Approach to Family Life Cycle Transitions.
Dankoski, Mary E.
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v27 n2 p177-87 Apr 2001
Open communication and processing of primary attachment emotions are crucial when family systems change. Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) can be helpful by encouraging family members to express primary emotions. Expression then fosters renegotiation of bonds and clarification of attachment concerns. Case examples illustrate how EFT can be applied to family life cycle stages. (BF)
