Introduction to Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT)

Date: 7 Dec 2015


Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) proposes that emotions have an adaptive potential that, if activated, can help clients change. This view of emotion is based on the belief that emotion, at its core, is an innate and adaptive system that has evolved to help us survive and thrive.

Clients are helped in therapy to better identify, experience, explore, make sense of, transform and flexibly manage their emotions. As a result, clients become more skilful in accessing the important information and meanings about themselves and their world that emotions contain, as well as become more skilful in using that information to live vitally and adaptively.

Rhonda N. Goldman, PhD, is a professor at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Schaumburg and a therapist affiliate of the Family Institute at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois where she works with both couples and individuals. She has co-authored four books on Emotion-Focused Therapy; Leaning Emotion-Focused Therapy (2003), Case Studies in Emotion-Focused Treatment of Depression (2007), and Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy: The Dynamics of Emotion, Love, and Power (2008) and Case formulation in Emotion-Focused Therapy (2014).

She practices, teaches, and conducts research on emotional processes and outcomes in Emotion-Focused Therapy and has written on empathy, vulnerability, depression and case formulation. She was the recipient of the Carmi Harrari Early Career Award (2011) from the Society of Humanistic Psychology, Division 32 of the American Psychological Association. She is currently president of the Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration (SEPI).
