Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Psychotherapists have long followed the red thread of emotionality, but a general and integrated theory of cognition, emotion, and psychodynamics has not been available. This compendium of views of how to explain clinical emotionality moves toward the goal of such integration by specifying observable phenomena and pegging the theories of contributors to such instances. The book is part of a revitalization movement in clinical theory."--Mardi Horowitz, M.D., Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute, University of California, San Francisco

A continuation of the editors' previously co-authored Emotion in psychotherapy (Guilford, 1987), this volume contributes to the development of a trans-theoretical approach to affective change events. Viewing emotional experience as an active ingredient in, rather than a by-product of, the change process, it explores the ramifications of this understanding for the conduct of therapy. Annotation c.
