Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) involves providing an empathic and emotionally attuned therapeutic relationship in which the therapist has his or her finger on the client’s pulse moment by moment. In this series, psychologist Les Greenberg helps a client face an unusual type of complex relational trauma. The client first expresses her anger and sadness to an imagined figure of her recently severely injured father sitting opposite her. This ultimately leads towards a sense of relief. The session then moves to focusing on the violating experience of betrayal caused by her grandmother who had been abusive towards her father. Using empty chair dialogue, Les helps the client overcome her fear and disgust and then express her rage. By the end of the session, the client hasn't fully let go of her bad feelings towards her father but she has taken the first step towards processing her painful emotions. Greenberg provides commentary on his work with the client.
