Now in its sixth year, we are continuing our annual tradition of bringing together clinicians within our community and beyond for a professional training session to enrich your clinical practice. Due to the pandemic, we are holding this year’s training via Zoom and are eager to welcome many of our international colleagues.
This year we are excited to host Dr. Leslie Greenberg, internationally renowned clinical psychologist and one of the primary developers of Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT). Dr. Greenberg will provide a two-day online training, “Ten Ways to Enhance Emotion in Therapy: The Transforming Power of Affect”.
Dates: December 11 and 12, 2020
Time: 11 am – 2 pm EST
About the Workshop
Emotion processing is rapidly being recognized as a trans-diagnostic process. This workshop will begin with a discussion on emotion processing and provide tips for how to enhance it in therapy. The importance of working with automatically generated amygdala-based emotion by means of emotional awareness, emotional expression and emotion transformation will be emphasized. The use of moment-by-moment process diagnosis to identify adaptive and maladaptive, as well as primary and secondary emotions, will be discussed.
Ten ways of enhancing emotion processing in therapy will be presented and exemplified with videotaped examples. Participants will be introduced to the skills of moment-by-moment empathic attunement to affect, following their pain compass, focusing on bodily felt feelings, unblocking of emotions and re-experiencing the past in the present. Differential intervention based on major principles of emotional change in psychotherapy will also be discussed.
