Emotion-focused therapy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Emotion-focused therapy (EFT), also known as process-experiential therapy, integrates active therapeutic methods from gestalt and other humanistic therapies within the frame of a person-centred relationship (Elliott, Watson, Goldman & Greenberg, 2004). EFT updates person-centred and gestalt therapies by incorporating contemporary emotion theory and affective neuroscience, dialectical constructivism, and contemporary attachment theory. In this chapter, I review the current status of EFT, summarising its history, theory, practice, and outcome evidence.
