Emotion and Psychotherapy

Summer 2020

Taught By: Julia Belotserkovsky

Section: A

CRN: 2088

Credits: 3

Over the last 30 years emotion-focused therapy has become an increasingly important approach to therapy. Beginning with the foundational books of Greenberg & Safran (1987), Greenberg & Johnson (1988) and Greenberg, Rice & Elliott (1993) and continuing with the publication of a large number of theoretical, clinical and empirical contributions over the years (e.g., Greenberg & Paivio, 1997; Elliott, Watson, Goldman & Greenberg, 2004, Greenberg & Watson, 2006; Paivio & Pascual-Leone, 2010, Geller & Greenberg, 2012, Watson & Greenberg, 2017) emotion-focused therapy has emerged as an increasingly prominent evidence-based treatment approach. In this seminar we will examine key principles of working with emotion in psychotherapy and review the topics of emotion assessment formulation and intervention. We will explore the processes involved working with a range of distressing emotions including: anger, sadness, fear and shame, and study the process of accessing and harnessing adaptive emotions. While the majority of the seminar will focus on individual therapy, we will spend some time exploring couples therapy as well. Discussion of reading combined with extensive video illustrations.
