Emotion-Focused Therapy For Depression

Date: 26 Apr 2017 - 27 Apr 2017


Depression is a complex biopsychosocial phenomenon. No single cause can be isolated. When people are depressed, they have disturbances at many levels of functioning. People who are depressed experience not only a loss of ability to feel interest, pleasure, and joy, but also an increase in sadness, anger, anxiety, and shame.

Emotion-Focused Therapy

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 skillful in accessing the important information and meanings about themselves and their world that emotions contain, as well as become more skillful in using that information to live vitally and adaptively.
