Emotion-focused Therapy: Coaching Clients to Work Through Their Feelings (2002)

Author(s): Leslie S. Greenberg

Couple & Family Therapy

In Emotion-Focused Therapy, 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. Contents: * Emotions and Emotional Intelligence * Distinguishing Between Varieties of Emotional Expression * The Therapist as an Emotion Coach * The Steps of Emotion Coaching * Arriving at a Primary Emotion * Coaching to Evaluate Whether an Emotion Is Healthy * Identifying Maladaptive Emotions * The Transforming Power of Affect * Lessons About Anger and Sadness From Psychotherapy * Transforming Fear and Shame in Psychotherapy * Coaching for Emotional Wisdom in Couples * Emotions in Parenting
