Sue Johnson has spent 30 years researching how relationships can be repaired, how the bonds of love work, and how people change in psychotherapy.
Most of her research focuses on the efficacy of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), a therapy she developed more than 30 years ago. It’s acknowledged as the gold standard in tested, proven interventions for couples. EFT is all about emotion, the music that dictates how we move with or away from our own vulnerabilities and needs. She and her team have been able to demonstrate its effectiveness through peer-reviewed clinical research that continues today.
Sue received many awards for this research and was named “Psychologist of the Year” in 2016 by Division 43 of the American Psychological Association. She also been recognized by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy for Outstanding Contribution to the Field of Couple and Family Therapy.
