VIDEO: Focusing Techniques in Therapy

A New Practice of Inner Listening

Joan Klagsbrun

How can you more effectively work with a client whose emotions have become all-consuming?

According to Focusing trainer Joan Klagsbrun, Focusing techniques are especially effective for helping distressed clients navigate their inner repository of memories, feelings, emotions, and bodily sensations. Here she talks about the difference between mindfulness meditation and Focusing. Unlike meditation, Focusing goes beyond calm observation to offer a powerful tool for tracking the immediate, moment-by-moment felt sense of difficult emotional states. According to Joan, there's no more impactful way of bringing clients into the present tense of their experience.
