Psychotherapy Networker Symposium: Harnessing the Power of Emotion: A Step-by-Step Approach with Susan Johnson, Ed.D.



Since advances in neuroscience and attachment theory have led to an increasing appreciation of the centrality of emotions in human relationships, it’s ironic that therapists are so often intimidated by the raw power of clients’ feelings. This workshop will guide you through the process of helping clients tap into their deepest emotional reserves as a positive force for shaping growth and transformation. Through exercises and viewing sessions of Emotionally Focused Therapy, you’ll develop skills to use in therapy.
