Overview

Emotion-Focused Therapy: Coaching Clients to Work Through Their Feelings

Leslie Greenberg offers therapists an exciting new approach to helping clients live in harmony with head and heart. Greenberg proposes that, rather than controlling or avoiding emotions, clients can learn from their own bodily reactions and begin to act sensibly on them. This is a new approach to the current one of most books on coping which emphasize mind over mood and the use of biological psychiatry's psychotropic medications to regulate emotion. 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.
