This Psychotherapist of South African origin analyzed therapeutic intervention based on emotions
The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences welcomed Leslie Greenberg, one of the most relevant international figures in the field of Psychotherapy and one of the founders of Focused Therapy in Emotion. In fact, she is considered to be the most relevant Humanistic Psychotherapist alive. Greenberg came to Comillas, invited by the Master's Degree in Humanistic Psychotherapy Experience and Psychotherapy Focused on Emotion (“Psicoterapia Humanista Experiencia y Psicoterapia Focalizada en la Emoción” or TFE, in Spanish) at Comillas ICAI-ICADE, which Greenberg supports and which is part of the International Society for Emotion Focused Therapy.
Professor Greenberg delivered a series of lectures in which, before a packed audience, she presented the theoretical foundations of Therapeutic Intervention with Emotions. She spoke about the importance of the activation of emotions, the importance of naming them, regulating them and understanding the need embedded in them. She also presented different therapeutic techniques that allow transforming emotional wounds and that have received different empirical evidence.
