Harnessing the Power of Emotion with Susan Johnson


The Emotion Revolution: NP0023 – Session 1

Welcome to “The Emotion Revolution: Harnessing Mind, Body and Soul in the Consulting Room.” In this series, leading innovators in the field will explore how therapists can work more deeply and usefully with emotions in the consulting room---our own and the clients’. Each session will uncover different methods and techniques you can use to better utilize emotion in session.

In this first session with Susan Johnson, one of the developers of Emotionally Focused Therapy, you’ll discover methods to work more experientially with volatile emotions in the consulting room by delving into the client’s deeper attachment issues. You’ll learn to help clients achieve a more profound and enduring level of healing without resorting to controlling or distancing a client’s potentially explosive emotions. You can take a look at her compelling article on the same topic in our May/June 2012 issue, "The Power of Emotion in Therapy" here.

After you hear this presentation, please take a few minutes to comment about what you found most interesting or relevant. These comment boards will be a valuable way to share your thoughts, opinions, and questions throughout the series. If you ever have any technical questions, please feel free to contact and our Support Team will help you.

The Healing Power of Emotion


Harnessing the Strength of Emotion with Susan Johnson

No one has been more instrumental in bringing “The Emotional Revolution” into the consulting room than master clinician Susan Johnson. In the video clip below, Sue describes her time as a grad student when the direct experience of emotion was seen as a disruptive force in the consulting room rather than a potential source of deep healing and connection.

Read Susan Johnson’s recent article on this topic FREE. It’s the cover feature article in the May/June issue of the Networker, “The Power of Emotion in Therapy.”

Susan Johnson, Ed.D., professor of clinical psychology, is one of the developers of Emotionally Focused Therapy. She’s the director of the Ottawa Couple and Family Institute and the International Center for Excellence in EFT. Her latest book is Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love.
