Working with Emotions in Psychotherapy Summary

Working with Emotions in Psychotherapy by Leslie S. Greenberg (York University, Toronto, Canada)

In previous books, Leslie S. Greenberg has demonstrated the importance of integrating emotional work into therapy and has laid out a compelling model of therapeutic change. Building on these foundations, Working with Emotions in Psychotherapy sheds new light on the process and technique of intervention with specific emotions.
Filled with illustrative case examples, the book shows clinicians how to identify a given emotion, discern its role in a client's self-understanding, and understand how its expression is furthering or inhibiting the client's progress. Of vital importance, the authors help readers think more differentially about emotions; to distinguish, for example, between avoided emotional pain and chronic dysfunctional bad feelings, between adaptive sadness and maladaptive depression, and between overcontrolled anger and underregulated rage. A conceptual overview and framework for intervention are delineated, and special attention is given throughout to the integration of emotion and cognition in therapeutic work.

Working with Emotions in Psychotherapy Reviews

The authors of this book beautifully describe the hierarchical order of emotions, how to identify specific emotions, and ultimately how to work and restructure the client's relationship to powerful and damaging maladaptive emotions. For people who are interested in cognitive and experiential work with emotions, this book is invaluable. - The Journal of Psychotherapy Practice and Research

For any therapist who believes that it is important to address the powerful emotions that clients bring to therapy, this is an important and seminal book. - Canadian Psychology

There is no doubt that Greenberg is both a pioneer and the field's premier investigator in the important work of applying the basic research on emotions to the process of psychotherapy. The focus on primary emotions and their change is what distinguishes this book. It is a fabulous compendium of strategies for working with emotions and draws from both behavioral and experiential therapies. A 'must read.' - Marsha M. Linehan, PhD
