Emotion Focused Therapy with Dr. Melissa Harte
It is with sadness that Dr. Harte has recently passed away. Dr Harte was a leader and educator of Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), an evidenced based therapy mainly used to help people with emotional injury and trauma. Dr. Harte walked us through the identification of emotions during therapy (there are 7 primary emotions, sadness, joy, anger, fear, disgust, interest/curiosity and shame). Dr. Harte explained how a trained therapist emotionally tunes into the feelings of their clients and helps process what they are feeling as well as using other queues to identify the emotions that someone may be experiencing.
