    Just wanted to say thank you for this resource, really enjoyed that it was a rebroadcast of a workshop vs an interview! The content is relevant, stimulating, engaging and very educational!

    Sue Johnson is amazing! I also appreciated that this was a workshop rather than an interview, as she was teaching rather than talking about EFT. This allowed her to be able to keep the focus on what she considers important. I will take with me the concept that talking about and labeling emotion is not the same as working with emotion. She demonstrated the difference very clearly, which was immensely helpful for a student like me who is still learning how to help clients move.

    I have always found that creating felt safety for emotional expression is a key ingredient in facilitating the healing/empowering process with individuals, couples and groups. The “slow, soft” interventions simply demonstrated by Sue do this. The more we as therapists do our own deep emotional work, the more clients sense our comfort with their feelings. In turn,our acceptance of emotional intensity ends the widespread message to control and suppress feeling. The recognition of what is primary and what is a secondary emotion in any given moment is also critical. I find that working in small groups increases exponentially the chance of accessing feelings that have been repressed.
