And How Understanding Our Nervous Systems Can Help
Why do we cry? And what’s the basic definition of emotion, anyway?
Learn from professor of psychology Jay Efran about his two-stage theory on why we cry and how to more effectively handle those situations in which our clients burst into tears in session. Based on his article in the May/June 2012 issue with Mitchell Greene, “Why We Cry: A Clinician’s Guide,” this clip will illustrate the thesis of their theory and provide a real-life, practical example.
Jay’s presentation is part of our new streaming-video webcast series, “The Emotion Revolution: Harnessing Mind, Body and Soul in the Consulting Room.”
Jay Efran, Ph.D., is emeritus professor of psychology at Temple University. He’s the coauthor of Language, Structure, and Change: Frameworks of Meaning in Psychotherapy and The Tao of Sobriety.
