Description

Product Description

This workbook is intended for use with couples who want to enhance their emotional connection or overcome their relationship distress. It is recommended for use with couples pursuing Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). It closely follows the course of treatment and is designed so that clinicians can easily integrate guided reading and reflections into the therapeutic process. The material is presented in a recurring format: Read, Reflect, and Discuss. Readings help couples look at their relationship through an attachment lens, walking them through the step-by-step process of creating a secure relationship bond. 33 Reflections invite readers to engage with the material personally, expanding their own awareness and ability to tune into their partner. Discussion sections suggest relationship-building exercises and a framework for conversations that promote safety, disclosure, and engagement. Case examples, along with informative illustrations, are scattered throughout the book to validate, illustrate, and inspire couples along their journey. Clinicians conversant with EFT can use this workbook to extend the effectiveness of their work with couples by giving them structured tasks to work on between sessions. For clinicians training in EFT, the book can guide them in staying focused on the EFT roadmap and illuminate how important change events unfold.

Review

“The perspectives and exercises offered here are right on target; they arise from a clear understanding of the bonds of love and how these bonds work in adult relationships… We hope that this book will help you do just that – shape your precious relationship into a more satisfying and lasting bond.” - Dr. Sue Johnson, From the Foreword

"This book offers ’power tools’ for couples who want to look deeply at themselves and their relationship. The authors go a lot deeper than routine techniques of marital communication--they get to the heart of the matter. And so will you if you read, digest, and practice what this books offers."-- William J. Doherty, PhD, Professor of Family Social Science at the University of Minnesota, USA and Author of Take Back Your Marriage

"At last a workbook for couples that faithfully mirrors the process of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). It''s like having 2 master EFT therapists come home with you during the week to support and guide you to maintain the progress you make in therapy sessions and improve your relationship more quickly. In-depth explanations and reflective exercises will help you to explore your emotions, articulate them better for yourself, and express them to your partner. I will recommend this workbook to every one of the couples in my practice!" -- Marlene Best, PhD, Clinical Professor in Clinical Psychology, University of Ottawa, Canada; Certified EFT Therapist, Supervisor & Trainer

"This workbook, based on Emotionally Focused Therapy, includes excellent exercises that focus on helping couples create positive communication patterns in place of the destructive ones that negatively affect their relationships. Drawing on extensive research and clinical experience, this book will help couples strengthen their trust in one another as well as heal past hurts. I recommend it for use in marriage enrichment groups, as well as by individual couples." --Patricia Noller PhD, Emeritus Professor, School of Psychology, University of Queensland, Australia

The book is supposed to have a duplicate copy of worksheets in appendix a. However the worksheets for chapters 1-4 and 7-10 are printed twice in the appendix and chapter 5-6 worksheets are missing. It appears to be a printing error. It makes me worry that more content might be missing from the text body. We are not inclined to return it because our personal notes are in it. We are also using it in conjunctiin with therapy so doing a return may disrupt our pace. The concepts inside seem otherwise good.

My husband and I are both counselors. We have watched for this book to come out, and have been working through it together. We are impressed with the material and how it is positively affecting our marriage and connection. We definitely will finish the book together, and plan to use it with clients. Professionally and personally, we recommend this book. Some couples will need the support of a counselor to work through the material (especially if there are major issues/ hurts or an inability to communicate without arguing), but it can definitely stand alone as well. The exercises are great and the material is solid.... This is is the kind of book that changes lives.

There''s an absolute sea of garbage out there dealing w/ this issue. We found this book to be very refreshing. Unlike most of the other guys, who always seem to be peddling some agenda (pushing their religion, trying to create a self-help franchise, etc.), these folks were objective and evidence-based. At least, as much as you can be with the topic of emotions. We''re using this as a companion piece to Dr. Sue Johnson''s "Hold Me Tight." Both books put a lot of emphasis on citing the clinical research of predecessors rather than the, "And that''s when I discovered the 7 rules of a successful blah, blah, blah! And now you can too!!" (I hate that crap!)

Nope, this book just has a lot of common sense good advice for folks looking to fix or strengthen their relationship. It''s almost embarrassing just how universal so many of these issues are that we think of as our own unique problems. It''s like, "oh, uh, yeah, that''s me all right. That''s what''s been tripping me out." "And that''s what''s been going on with me. I can see why you''d get so upset." "Okay, let''s just suck it up and recognize what we''ve been doing wrong and fix it."

This workbook is a nice accompaniment to Dr. Sue Johnson''s Hold Me Tight book as it allows couples to identify their cycle and slow down their "dance" in order to change the way they understand and respond eachother.

Getting to know my husband with ''The Two of Us'' has been a fun and connective ride. While I am a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist who works with couples in distress, I find this book very helpful as he and I do our love work together on Sunday afternoons on the deck or on our sofa. It deepened my, and our, process in our relationship. The only recommendation or change I would make regarding this book is to call it something other than a ''workbook'' because it is not work, it is connecting.

I use this workbook in my counseling practice with all my premarital counseling couples and with some of my other couples who need a little extra structured work in between our sessions. It''s well laid-out, very easy to understand, and has good conversation-starting exercises. I have never used a workbook with my clients as consistently as I refer to this one. It also has some great lists that are helpful in giving readers examples of primary vs secondary emotions, reactive vs. nonreactive behaviors, etc. A worthy purchase!

I love this book! I haven''t fully digested all the material since I haven''t had it long enough but I wanted to write about it becasue it''s such a well thought out workbook that was clearly written by people who know the Emotionally Focused Therapy model inside out. With any homework we give as EFT therapists we must be careful that we are not asking our couples to move beyond either person''s ability to have faith in their safety within the hands of their partner. When they are working with us we see their distress as evidence of an insecure attachment (either withdrawing or pursuing) so, this book takes into account that we must honor and respect each person in the couple and their ability to understand that their distress is BECAUSE they fear the other won''t be there for them. That means that homework must be well thought out so it doesn''t demand more of the couple than they are ready for. The exercises in this workbook clearly are structured to support each person''s progress toward being able to express their underlying primary emotions, thereby moving carefully through the EFT model. This workbook is a valuable tool for therapists and the use of it will add additional support to our clients. Well done and thank you to Veronica and Jenny!

Reviewed in Canada on March 4, 2016
My husband and I both have trouble with this one even though we''ve read the Hold me Tight book. This too seems to need to be done in conjunction with a therapist. Would be difficult to just do it on your own.

Easy to read
Reviewed in Canada on January 24, 2017
Definitely a step in the right direction, but should be used in conjuction with counselling. Still, the workbook touched on some very important topics and certainly helps gain clarity with regards to understanding one another. Easy to read, excellent exercises.
