In this dissertation, we revisit the prospects of a strongly interacting theory for the Electroweak Symmetry Breaking Sector (EWSBS) of the Standard Model, after the discovery at the LHC of a Higgs-like boson at \(\sim 125\,\mathrm{GeV}\). The tools of Effective Chiral Lagrangians and unitarization procedures will be used, and the old Higgsless Electroweak Chiral Lagrangian (EChL) will be extended to accommodate a Higgs-like boson at \(\sim 125\,\mathrm{GeV}\). Since the discovery of the Higgs-like boson at the LHC, this field has received increasing attention. I hope that this dissertation, besides our original results that will be described, can be a useful introduction to the field of a strongly interacting EWSBS with a light Higgs but below the possible new-physics scale. To this end, several appendices with detailed computations have been included. And some of the sections, especially those containing the physical fundamentation of the computational procedures, are very detailed.
