In this outstanding book, Greenberg and Watson continue the monumental task
that Leslie Greenberg began many years ago of developing an emotion-focused
approach to psychotherapy that is sophisticated, systematic, empirically
supported and teachable. Although emotion-focused therapy has been applied
successfully to a range of clinical problems in the past, this book is the first
to spell out the theory and principles underlying its successful application to
the treatment of depression. The approach offers a valuable, empirically
supported alternative (or supplement) to cognitive therapy, and I predict that
Emotion-Focused Therapy for Depression will have a major impact on the field.

In Emotion-Focused Therapy: Coaching Clients to Work Through Their Feelings,
Leslie S. Greenberg offers therapists an exciting new approach to helping
clients live in harmony with head and heart. While most current books on coping
emphasize mind over mood, and biological psychiatry offers psychotropic
medication to regulate emotion, Greenberg proposes that, rather than controlling
or avoiding emotions, clients can learn from their own bodily reactions and
begin to act sensibly on them. Expressing emotion in ways that are appropriate
to context is a highly complex skill, and one that is rarely taught. Rich in
clinical wisdom, practical guidance, and case illustration, this book provides
an empirically supported model of training clients to attain emotional wisdom.

"There is no doubt that Les Greenberg is both a pioneer and the field's
premier investigator in the important work of apply ing the basic research on
emotions to the process of psychotherapy. The focus on primary emotions and

strategies for working with emotions and draws from both behavioral and
experiential therapies. A must' read."

Working with Emotions in Psychotherapy illuminates the process and
technique of intervention with specific emotions. 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,
intervention guidelines, and a wealth of case illustrative case examples are
included, and special attention is given throughout to the integration of
emotion and cognition in therapeutic work.

While emotions are often given a negative connotation people are described as
being "too emotional" or as needing to "control their
emotions" the authors of this volume argue that, to the contrary, emotions
are organizing processes that enhance adaptation and problem solving. Within an
experiential therapy framework, they show how to work with moment-by-moment
emotional processes to resolve various psychological difficulties.
The first two sections of the book provide an introduction and lay the
theoretical groundwork for the treatment manual that follows. The process
experiential approach to treatment is presented, followed by an explication of
the interrelationships among emotion, cognition, and change that results in a
powerful, clinically relevant theory of human functioning. The third section, a
detailed treatment manual, outlines the general principles and methods of
therapy and provides step-by-step directions for six specific types of
interventions. Excerpts from actual transcripts exemplify the various methods,
illuminating the moment-by-moment process for both the client and the therapist.

-Neil S. Jacobson, PhD
This book demonstrates the power of emotional experience
in relationships and how this power can be used to reconstruct intimate bonds.
In emotionally focused couples therapy, intrapsychic and interpersonal
perspectives are combined; interactional positions are assumed to be maintained
by strong, primary, emotional responses and by the way interactions are
structured and organized. Hence, the goal of emotionally focused therapy is to
enable a couple to change the habitual positions they assume in relation to each
other and to change the way each partner experiences the relationship.
Edited by Leslie S. Greenberg
Those psychologists who have adopted a manualized, technological, or
"managed care" approach to their science have tried to downplay
empathy as a key element in psychotherapy. Empathy is relegated to a useful
background characteristic for building the therapeutic relationship, but it is
often not understood as a vital therapeutic ingredient in its own right. Many
clinicians do not seem to realize that the subject of empathy has generated
novel perspectives and a healthy current research base.
The coeditors of Empathy Reconsidered: New Directions in Psychotherapy have
chosen to buck this trend, bringing together a group of respected writers from a
variety of perspectives who are making active contributions to the development
of our understanding of what empathy is and how it operates in the therapy
context. The contributors examine this therapeutic variable in a prism of
theoretical perspectives, ranging from self psychology to psychodynamic,
client-centered, experiential, feminist, humanistic, cognitive-behavioral,
cross-cultural, postmodern, and developmental psychology. Moreover, this volume
features heavy representation of the increasingly vital trend toward
Although there are many unanswered questions about the role of empathy in
psychotherapy, the present collection brings the reader up to date by comparing
different operational definitions and by discussing the varieties of empathy and
their hypothesized relationships to therapy process and outcome. Empathy

conscious use by therapists of empathy in working with their clients, and by

Integrating the work of leading client-centered, gestalt, interpersonal,
focusing, and process-oriented therapists, Handbook of Experiential
Psychotherapy covers both conceptual foundations and current treatment
applications. Contributors present well-articulated approaches to treating
depression, PTSD, anxiety, and other problems, emphasizing the need to work with
the client's own moment-by-moment experience of disturbing states and processes.
The volume delineates a variety of experiential methods--from working with
clients to symbolize bodily felt sense, evoke memories, and express intense
feelings, to helping them reflect on their experience, maintain gains from
session to session, and create new meanings for themselves. The role of the
therapist's relational stance in promoting particular emotional processes is
also examined, and newly developed models of experiential diagnosis and case
formulation are described.

In the past decade, the working alliance has emerged as
possibly the most important conceptualization of the common elements in diverse
therapy modalities. Created to define the relationship between a client in
therapy or counseling and the client's therapist, it is a way of looking at and
examining the vagaries and expectations and commitments previously implicit in
the therapeutic relationship, explaining the cooperative aspects of the alliance
between the two parties.

The study of psychotherapy has often been limited to the ways
in which cognitive and behavioral processes promote personal change. Introducing
a ground breaking perspective, Greenberg and Safran's compelling new work argues
that the presently-felt experience of emotional material in therapy forms a
vital underpinning in the generation of change. By including emotion as a
psychotherapeutic catalyst, the book offers a more complete and encompassing
approach to the process of psychotherapy than has ever before been available.
The book draws from the literature of both clinical and experimental psychology
to provide a critical review of theory and research on the role of emotion in
the process of change. Providing a general theoretical framework for
understanding the impact of affect in therapy, this unique volume describes
specific change events in which emotions enhance the achievement of therapeutic
goals. Case examples and extensive transcripts vividly portray a variety of
affective modes--such as completing emotional expression, accessing previously
unacknowledged feelings, and restructuring emotions--and illustrate in clear,
practical terms how certain processes apply to particular patient problems.
Moving beyond the standard approaches to therapy, this volume offers an
integrated approach that carefully consider's the client's state in the session
that must be amenable to intervention as well as any given intervention and its

Emotion, Psychotherapy, and Change represents a systematic attempt to map the
various ways emotion influences the change process and to clarify the underlying
mechanisms. A continuation of the editors' pioneering work, Emotion in
Psychotherapy, this volume makes a significant contribution to the development
of a transtheoretical approach to affective change events. Viewing emotional
experience as an active ingredient in, rather than a by-product of, the change
process, the book explores the ramifications of this understanding for the
conduct of therapy.
A thorough review of the theory and therapeutic implications of emotion in human
functioning precedes chapters by representatives of three different therapeutic
traditions: cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and experiential. Contributors
identify and describe the key affective change events important in their
respective approaches and then speculate about the underlying processes.
Included here are detailed descriptions of relevant therapist-client
interactions as well as clinical transcripts that vividly illustrate the process
of change. A separate, theory-oriented commentary section follows in which the
theme of emotion in psychotherapy is examined from the perspectives of cognitive
psychology and emotion theory. A synthesis and critical analysis of affective
change processes rounds out the volume.

- American Journal of Psychiatry
This comprehensive volume represents the first state-of-the-art handbook to
appear in the field of process research in over a decade. Updating and expanding
upon Kiesler's groundbreaking work (1973), Greenberg and Pinsof present here the
most systems for understanding the mechanisms of change in individual, group,
and family treatment. Special attention is given to the role of the alliance
between therapist and client. Emphasizing the impact that empirical
investigations can make on practice, the Handbook presents a wide variety of
up-to-date process research systems and consolidates methodological information
in the field.
The first chapter by the editors provides an overview of the current
state-of-the-art of process research. Subsequently, the book is divided into two
major sections. The first part presents the major instruments in the field. Each
chapter is a biography of a particular process analysis system and a useful
mini-manual. Covering different therapeutic modalities and orientations, this
section is divided into what have historically been called observational and
self-report systems. Chapters on observational coding include at least one
transcribed segment of an actual therapy session to illustrate the "lived
reality"' of how the system operates.
The second section addresses methodological issues, illustrating how
psychotherapy works. Focussing on two current research programs that use a wide
variety of systems to capture the overall process of treatment, this section
also presents a pioneering attempt to empirically identify phases of treatment.
The final chapter delineates new strategies for research and highlights critical
issues that must be addressed to explain how change takes place in therapy and
how this relates to therapeutic outcome.

"One only has to experience this approach to know its effectiveness and
see the remarkable therapeutic changes possible."
- John H. Gladfelter, PhD
This is the first practical book from an experiential perspective to deal
explicitly with blocked affect. Based on the authors' extensive clinical
experience and their NIMH-sponsored research, focused expressive psychotherapy (FEP)
is shown to be ideally suited for the many over controlled patients mired in
"unfinished emotional business."
A complete approach in one volume, the reader is given the underlying
psychological assumptions of FEP as well as its principles, therapeutic
procedures, and assessment techniques.
The book delineates the roles and responsibilities of both the therapist and
client, presents FEP's five-step procedure, and describes its therapeutic
methods and techniques. The design of experiments and problems are illustrated
with segments from actual sessions, and evaluation procedures are provided so
that both therapist and patient can assess the progress being made. Complete FEP
sessions with explanatory comments are included so that the reader can follow
the entire FEP process from the beginning to the end of the session.
