The present study analyzes the efficacy of emotion-focused couple therapy (EFT) on the change of attachment styles and sexual intimacy of couples. This study is a quasi-experimental one with pretest and control group. For this aim, 25 couples who for marital conflicts had visited private counseling centers in Mashhad were selected by non-probability sampling voluntarily. 12 couples were put in the experimental group and 13 couples in the control group. All the participants filled in the attachment styles questionnaire of Collins & Reed and sexual intimacy questionnaire. Those in the experimental group took part in nine 1.5-hour sessions of emotion-focused couple therapy (EFT). After the end of therapy sessions, those in the two groups again filled in the mentioned questionnaire. The results show a significant difference between the experimental and control groups in the safety on attachment and sexual intimacy.
