5.0 out of 5 stars Going deeper with your clients, 4 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Learning Emotion-focused Therapy: The Process-experiential Approach to Change (Hardcover)
EFT has evolved from Person Centred and Process Experiential therapies and has 25 years of research to demonstrate it's efficacy.
Like another reviewer here, I too have completed the Level 1 training in Strathclyde University with Robert Elliott, who co-authored this book.
I am very impressed with this approach and have experienced the potency of it within the course. I have no doubt it will greatly
enhance my client work.

This book is an excellent introduction to EFT and provides a comprehensive overview to the fundamentals of Process-Experiential
therapy, followed by specific processes and tasks. The manual shows how the therapist needs to listen out for what the client wants
to work on - there are specific markers or indicators for this. There is step by step process to working on a specific task with the client.
Is it a mixture of following and leading the client. It is fundamentally P-C in that the client sets the pace, and tasks are only done if/when
the client is ready and willing to do so.

My understanding of EFT is that for change to occur, clients need to be able to access underlying emotions around their problem. Blocked
emotions equals blocked living. Every emotion has associated needs, leading to action. What makes EFT so powerful is that clients emotions
are 'live' in the therapy room and are safely guided by the therapist in their expression and what they need. This means the difference
between talking 'about' problems and emotions, to 'entering into' that emotion fully and experiencing what it needs for it to find
resolution, so that the client can move on with their life. Highly recommended.

This review is from: Learning Emotion-focused Therapy: The Process-experiential Approach to Change (Hardcover)
Such a lot of theoretical work has gone into the compilation of this book. I had to read it several times before I could completely grasp the essence of the theories, but that was no chore. Fascinating stuff.
I decided to learn more about it and have undertaken further study in PE/EFT by signing up for the workshops at Strathclyde University - again wonderful quality stuff.
Learning this approach has built on my person-centred theoretical base making me a much more dynamic therapist and achieving better results in relatively short term therapy.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book, 17 July 2009
This review is from: Learning Emotion-focused Therapy: The Process-experiential Approach to Change (Hardcover)
This book is great when you want to expand your therapeutic techniques. The examples make it very clear how to use them in pratice. Could be helpful to try them on colleagues or in a supervision group first.
