About the Book

What happens when you see the effects of childhood maltreatment – when you have been trained in short-term work and you need another way to work with clients? This is the dilemma facing many practitioners. The Emotion-Focused approach has now been developed into a long-term psychotherapy. It is a humanistically and psychodynamically based relational psychotherapy, a treatment that understands the importance of emotions and processing emotional experience as well as the re-experiencing and regressions that are required for healing. Healing the inner child is a human endeavour and one that requires understanding, patience, respect, care and love. At the heart of this psychotherapy is the therapeutic relationship with both its real and symbolic aspects interwoven to create a safe space for clients to heal and recover their authentic self. This practitioner’s guide to Emotion-Focused psychotherapy provides the theory and practice behind this endeavour.

In her second book on her approach to Emotion-Focused work, Michelle Webster provides us with an in-depth, sensitive view of working with people in longer-term therapy. The focus is working on the impact that past events can have on current emotional difficulties. A highly valuable resource for all therapists working in more emotion-focused ways in long-term therapy. – Leslie S. Greenberg, PhD, Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus, Dept. of Psychology, York University, Toronto, Canada.

Rich in detail and practical in approach, Michelle Webster’s new book is a highly readable, well-crafted guide, featuring theoretical explanations and protocols, interspersed with specific clinical examples. This volume, along with its companion, Emotion-Focused Counselling, are required reading for practitioners with a passion for understanding and working with feelings and emotions. – Marie-Thérèse Proctor, PhD, Head, Graduate School of Counselling, Excelsia College, Australia. Senior Research Fellow, Lumen Research Institute, USA & Australia.
