Emotion-focused therapy (EFT) has become the go-to approach for many mental health professionals today. Although considerable efforts have been undertaken over the years to provide theoretical, practical, and research support for EFT, the same cannot be said for clinical supervision in an EFT context or with trainees who use EFT, which until now has proceeded using broad guidelines derived from general theories of supervision. In this book, Drs. Leslie Greenberg and Liliana Ramona Tomescu introduce a model of supervision that is founded on the same fundamental principles of EFT therapy: a safe supervisory alliance and relationship, an agreed-upon focus for each supervision session, and the identification of appropriate task markers (moments of uncertainty that present opportunities for supervisory intervention). Together, EFT supervisors and supervisees carefully deconstruct recorded therapy sessions, with moment-by-moment processing of the supervisee's responses and emotional understanding. Through close observation, supervisors enable trainees to develop seeing, listening, and empathic skills, as they become more attuned to both verbal and non-verbal cues that indicate clients' emotional responses. The book uses transcripts from supervision sessions with real trainees, including those documented on the DVD Emotion-Focused Therapy Supervision, also available from APA Books.

In Emotion-Focused Therapy for Depression, Leslie S. Greenberg and Jeanne C. Watson, well-regarded scholars and leading figures in the field, provide a manual for the emotion-focused treatment (EFT) of depression. Their approach is supported by studies in which EFT for depression was compared with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, and then both. The approach has been refined to apply specifically to the treatment of this pervasive and often intractable disorder. The authors discuss the nature of depression and its treatment, examine the role of emotion, present a schematic model of depression and an overview of the course of treatment, and suggest who might benefit. Written with a practical focus rather than the more academic theoretical style of previous books that established the theoretical grounds and scientific viability of working with emotion in psychotherapy, this book aims to introduce practitioners to the idea of using this approach to work with a depressed population. The book covers theory, case formulation, treatment, and research in a way that makes this complex form of therapy accessible to all readers. and skillful use of techniques to leverage emotional awareness and thus bring about change.
