Grounded in cutting-edge scientific research, this book presents innovative ways to explore and work with emotions in psychotherapy. Preeminent clinician-researcher Stefan G. Hofmann accessibly explains how emotions operate, what influences them, and how they can cause distress. He presents strategies that can significantly improve existing evidence-based treatments and promote positive affect and happiness. Clinicians are guided to help clients with any diagnosis gain emotional awareness and use emotion regulation techniques, mindfulness-based practices, and other effective strategies. "In Practice" sidebars highlight specific clinical issues and offer illustrative case vignettes.

Reviews:

“This outstanding volume covers diverse areas related to emotions in therapy, including biology and neuroscience, social and personality psychology, motivation, and recent mindfulness meditation strategies. The author also gives concrete recommendations and tools for targeting emotions in clinical practice.”

—Aaron T. Beck, MD, University Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania Medical School

“Hofmann is a leading thinker in the field of cognitive-behavioral therapy. He does an excellent job of synthesizing findings from psychology and brain sciences to help better understand how the concept of emotion fits into the therapeutic process. I learned a great deal from this book.”

—Joseph E. LeDoux, PhD, Center for Neural Science and Department of Psychology, New York University

“The book illustrates how affective science can be translated into clinical practice, honing in on techniques that are useful for treatment of a variety of emotional problems. The many 'In Practice' sidebars will be of particular interest to clinicians, as they provide a veritable bounty of practical information. The summaries of clinically relevant points at the end of each chapter also provide useful guideposts. Clinicians will find this book both accessible and useful—a winning combination.”

—Ann M. Kring, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley

“This volume cogently demonstrates that the time has come for emotion in psychotherapy. If you want a thoughtful translation of multidisciplinary research on emotion into clinical applications, you must read this book. It provides an excellent overview of the field, shows how emotion is a core aspect of the majority of psychological problems, and distills a set of cognitive-behavioral clinical strategies for working with emotion. By integrating work with emotion into a cognitive-behavioral approach, Hofmann makes a wonderful contribution to the trend toward psychotherapy integration. This is a helpful book for clinicians that would serve as a good textbook in any course on psychotherapy or counseling.”

—Leslie S. Greenberg, PhD, Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychology, York University, Canada
