Deliberate Practice in Emotion-Focused Therapy
- This book presents deliberate practice exercises to help students, trainees, and clinicians address common challenges that arise in emotion-focused therapy (EFT). Deliberate practice is a rigorous training method that involves repeated behavioral rehearsal and stimulation-based learning therapy techniques. The exercises in this book consist of a series of role-playing scenarios in which two trainees act as a client and a therapist, switching back and forth under the guidance of a supervisor. Instructions guide all three participants through the application of specific EFT techniques and interpersonal skills, such as responding empathically to clients, building therapist self-awareness, and repairing relationship ruptures. Sample client statements and therapist responses, organized by difficulty from beginner to advanced levels, highlight common therapeutic interactions. They also provide the opportunity for creative and natural responses that will better prepare therapists for any scenario, thus ensuring more optimal outcomes for clients.
