Ep122 Finding the Demon Dialogues in Couples Communication, Up First “Find the Bad Guy!”

Tired of negative patterns of communication in your marriage, or in relationships in general? Well, today is your lucky day! Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a structured approach to couples therapy based on the science of adult attachment and bonding that has mounds of research behind it. Studies find that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery, and approx 90% show significant improvements. One of the first things you’ll need to do is find where you are in the Demon Dialogues? Do you and your spouse try to “Find the Bad Guy?” Or are you firmly doing the “Protest Polka?” You need to figure this out before reaching the “Freeze and Flee” which can ultimately lead feelings that the marriage isn’t salvageable. Learn more about these patterns and how to avoid them. Tony references Dr. Sue Johnson’s article http://drsuejohnson.com/where-does-love-go-wrong/ and pulls from http://iceeft.com
