The Healing Power of Emotion
Are you worried you're not handling your clients' emotions correctly?
For centuries, most emotions were viewed as weaknesses, irrational, and something to avoid at all costs. But recent research has proven how emotion can be a powerful tool in shaping our connection to others and motivating us to change. When therapists help clients deepen emotion, they attain better outcomes in therapy.

Too often, however, therapists haven't been trained on how to work with intense emotion in the consulting room and harness it as a therapeutic ally. And because many of us become uncomfortable when clients cry or scream in front of us, we're missing powerful opportunities for deep healing and change.

That's why we've brought together some of the field's leading innovators—Susan Johnson, Jay Efran, Rick Hanson, Diana Fosha, Joan Klagsburn and Ron Potter-Efron—for this online video course on the most powerful ways to make your clients' emotions allies toward healing.

When you enroll in this course, you'll learn:
- How to handle a client's emotions, even when they're unpleasant or out of control
- What to do when a client cries
- How to engage emotional clients in a way that helps them heal
- How to recognize facial expressions as an entry point into emotional healing
- How neuropsychology can help us understand emotion
Lean how emotion can guide your clients toward healing, and get the deep understanding and practical approaches you need to enhance your practice!

FREE! Networker Magazine Article PDF Download: Why We Cry: A Clinician's Guide with Jay Efran and Mitchell Greene
How can joyful and tragic events both elicit tears? This question puzzles many clinicians, including some who are considered experts in the field of emotional expression. The problem is that few of us have received explicit training in theories of emotion. Therefore, our notions about tears and other forms of emotional release are still partly based on “steam-kettle thinking”—the culturally pervasive but biologically absurd notion that emotions are stored. In this article seasoned therapists Jay Efran and Mitchell Green share their theory on why we cry in an article that recently became a viral discussion across the Internet.
