Introduction: The purpose of the study was to determine the efficacy of emotion-focused couple therapy (EFCT) on couples' attachment styles.
Method: This is a quasi-experimental research based on pretest posttest with the control group. Statistical sample included 50 individuals (25 couples) who were selected by available sampling. They divided into two experimental (12 couples) and control group (12 couples) by simple random method. Measurement tools were Collins and Reid's Attachment Style Questionnaire and General Health Questionnaire (GHQ). Experimental group received 9 EFCT sessions. Data were analyzed by multivariable analysis of covariance.
