Find out the details of each part

First Part

The workshop will discuss:

  • The role of emotion and emotional awareness in function and dysfunction and the importance of working with core painful amygdala-based emotion.
  • The use of process diagnosis in an emotion-focused approach to identify different types of emotional processes.
  • Differential intervention based on process diagnosis will be demonstrated.
  • The use of differential interventions based on process diagnosis.
  • Six major principles of emotional change in psychotherapy will be presented: Emotion, Awareness, Expression, Regulation, Reflection, Transformation and Corrective Experience.

Videotaped examples of evidence based, methods for evoking and dealing with emotions in self-criticism will be presented and discussed. There will be also moments of discussion.

Second Part

This workshop will discuss:

  • The method of case formulation in an emotion focused approach
  • The stages of an emotion-focused therapy

Videotaped examples of an evidence-based method for evoking and dealing with emotions in self-criticism and in emotional injuries from the past with significant others will be presented and discussed.

Forgiveness and letting go of emotional injuries will be presented with video-taped examples.


There is a growing interest in how to work with emotion in psychotherapy. Different schools have developed different perspectives and different methods which were compared in a recent book (Greenberg, Thompson & Malberg, 2018). This workshop will take a further step by offering a trans-diagnostic, trans-theoretical perspective to working with emotion. This is based on two main ideas:

  • Emotion is central in many forms of psychological dysfunction and its cure
  • Both acceptance and change of emotions are important in its cure, regardless of type of emotional disorder.
