The Healing Power of Emotion

New Perspectives. New Approaches.

With Susan Johnson, Joan Klagsbrun, Rick Hanson

Emotion shapes and organizes our experience and connection to others. It readies us for specific actions and motivates us to change. And research now confirms that when therapists help clients deepen emotion, they attain better outcomes in therapy. But most of us have never been systematically trained in how to work with intense emotion in the consulting room. We don't fully understand the physiology of intense emotion or how to engage its inherent power to motivate, transform, and create change that lasts. 

Here, Sue Johnson explains why avoidance is often the first response to raw emotion and how to overcome it.

    Susan Johnson is one of the developers of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), director of the Ottawa Couple and Family Institute and the International Center for Excellence in EFT.
