In Emotion-Focused Therapy Over Time, Dr. Leslie S. Greenberg demonstrates emotion-focused therapy over the course of six entire sessions. Emotion-focused therapy focuses on helping clients gain access to and process previously avoided feelings and thoughts.

In this series of sessions, the client, Marcie, faces multiple problems, including depression, anxiety, and marital distress. Across these sessions, viewers will see Marcie become more aware of and start to combat her self-doubting internal voice and begin to self-soothe. This helps her move beyond the withdrawn state that has been her main means of survival.

This DVD contains more than 4 hours of therapy sessions and features a bonus voiceover in which Dr. Greenberg comments on the therapy as it progresses.


Emotion-focused therapy is an exciting new approach to helping clients live in harmony with their emotions. Rather than desiring to control or avoid emotions, clients learn that emotions tell us what is important in a situation and act as guides to what we need or want. Watch actual clients experience emotions as they arise in the safety of the therapy session and discover the value of greater awareness and more flexible management of emotions, with the goal of attaining emotional health.
