Working with Emotions in Psychotherapy (Practicing Professional)

Working with Emotions in Psychotherapy (Practicing Professional) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book outlines the intimate connection between emotion and cognition and details a manualized framework for conducting emotion-focused therapy. Demonstrating the unique ways of working with different emotions as well as different expressions of the same emotion, the book includes chapters on anger, sadness and distress, fear and anxiety, shame, and the positive emotions, including love, interest, and joy.

Book News Annotation:

The first section orients the reader to the theoretical foundations of emotion, including its organizing role in our experience of reality, sense of ourselves, and orientation toward others. The second part summarizes the principles and methods of emotionally focused therapy, delineating the three phases of successful intervention. Detailed case studies in the third part define the unique characteristics of therapeutic work with various emotions, both troubling and pleasant.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In previous books, Leslie S. Greenberg has demonstrated the importance of integrating emotional work into therapy and has laid out a compelling model of therapeutic change. Building on these foundations, WORKING WITH EMOTIONS IN PSYCHOTHERAPY sheds new light on the process and technique of intervention with *specific* emotions. Filled with illustrative case examples, the book shows clinicians how to identify a given emotion, discern its role in a client's self-understanding, and understand how its expression is furthering or inhibiting the client's progress toward the goals of therapy. Of vital importance, the authors help readers think more differentially about emotions; to distinguish, for example, between avoided emotional pain and chronic dysfunctional bad feelings, between adaptive sadness and maladaptive depression, and between overcontrolled anger and underregulated rage. A conceptual overview and framework for intervention are included, and special attention is given throughout to the integration of emotion and cognition in therapeutic work.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 283-292) and index.
