An emotion-focused approach promotes emotional awareness, expression, regulation, understanding and transformation of emotion and the development of empathy as a path to health and well-being in individuals and couples. It is an evidence-based approach to the treatment of problems in living and interpersonal problems and is dedicated to the scientific study of the process of human change in therapy.

The members of the Board of isEFT wish to express their deep sadness on the death of Melissa Harte, an International Trainer with the Australian Institute for EFT in Melbourne, Australia. Melissa was an esteemed and cherished colleague. She will be remembered for her energy, dedication, and enthusiasm as she worked to build an EFT Institute in Australia, sharing the approach widely with colleagues and clients. EFT as an approach and the International Organisation grew stronger with her contributions. Her presence among us will be missed in the years to come but her legacy and memory will live on. Our sincere condolences to her family and friends. www.aieft.org
