Responding to Emotion in Cognitive Psychotherapy

Responding to Emotion in Cognitive Psychotherapy

(p.235) Chapter 11 Responding to Emotion in Cognitive Psychotherapy
Emotion in Interaction

Liisa Voutilainen

Oxford University Press

The chapter discusses ways in which negative emotional experiences are attented to in cognitive psychotherapy sessions. There are two basic orientations in the therapist’s work: expressions of empathy on the one hand and the more investigative, interpretive, or even challenging, interventions on the other hand. The chapter describes how the therapist combines these orientations in her responses to the patient’s emotional disclosures. The orientations of empathy and investigative work can also be asynchronous, as is shown in an analysis of a misalignment between the therapist and the patient. The chapter discusses institutional features of psychotherapeutic interaction in relation to CA research on troubles telling sequences, as well as in relation to the clinical aspects of cognitive therapy.

Keywords:   psychotherapy, cognitive therapy, emotion, empathy, troubles telling, affiliation, misalignment
