Summary:
Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) involves providing an empathic and emotionally attuned therapeutic relationship in which the therapist has their finger on the client's pulse moment by moment.In this film Les helps the client face an unusual type of complex relational trauma. The client first expresses her anger and sadness to an imagination 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 confronting an imagination of her grandmother. This helps the client separate her anger at her grandmother from her anger at her father.The client comes to see her father in a somewhat different light, sensing his remorse for the hurt he caused her. This helps her to feel less angry at her father and for the seeds of love for him to begin to re-germinate. By the end of the session she hasn't fully let go of her bad feelings towards her father but she has taken the first step towards processing her painful emotions.
