This book is part of APAs, Theories of Psychotherapy Series, a focused resource for understanding the major theoretical models practiced by psychotherapists today. Each book presents a concentrated review of the history, key concepts, and application of a particular theoretical approach to the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of clients. The series emphasizes solid theory and evidence-based practice, illustrated with case examples featuring diverse clients.

Leslie Greenberg's work on emotion focused therapy is arguably one of the most important contributions to psychotherapy in recent years. This volume describes and illustrates the clinical use of emotion-focused experiential interventions within the context of an accepting and affirming relationship. In addition to a description of how emotion-focused therapy can be used in clinical practice, the process-outcome research findings that support its efficacy are reviewed, making the book relevant to clinicians and researchers alike.
