A groundbreaking examination of the transformational power of affect and a technique for harnessing it in the psychotherapeutic setting

The first model of accelerated psychodynamic therapy to make the theoretical why as important as the formula for how, Fosha’s original technique for catalyzing change mandates explicit empathy and radical engagement by the therapist to elicit and harness the patient’s own healing affects. Its wide-open window on contemporary relational and attachment theory ushers in a safe, emotionally intense, experience-based pathway for processing previously unbearable feelings. This is a rich fusion of intellectual rigor, clinical passion, and practical moment-by-moment interventions.
