Product description


"Ann Weiser Cornell and I have been working closely together for thirty years, and she knows as much about Focusing as I do. Ann has a knack for making the complex understandable and the theory of Focusing accessible to all readers. This book will be helpful to anyone who wants to know my philosophical work and better understand how to bring Focusing into clinical practice. I recommend it very strongly." -- Eugene Gendlin, PhD, founder of the Clinical Division Journal Psychotherapy: Theory Research and Practice; author of Focusing and Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy "When caught in emotional suffering, our core question is, 'What will help?' In her wise and compelling new book, Ann Weiser Cornell highlights the centrality of attention to the felt sense, showing through clear case studies how this attentiveness encourages the natural unfolding of a client's wholeness of being. Applicable and enriching for a wide range of therapeutic modalities, this book offers a precious set of insights and tools for healing professionals." -- Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge "Since Eugene Gendlin's landmark book Focusing, first published in 1978, there has been too little in the way of clinical application of his seminal work. In her thorough, illuminating book, Ann Weiser Cornell fills this need. She clearly outlines the essence of change, explaining how it emerges from the client's relationship with his or her living-sensing body. She demonstrates, step by step, just how these innate transformative moments occur and how we can guide our clients in that direction. It is 'magic' made simple, pure and simple." -- Peter A. Levine, PhD, author of In an Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness; recipient of the USABP Lifetime Achievement Award "Cornell has been involved with the development of Focusing for many years and is a wonderful exemplar of the method, in which she has trained many professionals. . . . Focusing in Clinical Practice communicates the very subtle, essentially non-verbal process of Focusing for client and therapist very well. It is so hard to express the ineffable, but she does it after years of experience and practice articulating the felt sense." -- Somatics "Focusing in Clinical Practice is enlightening primarily for its rich and detailed client-therapist transcripts. . . . Whether you pick up the book as a professional or simply as an observer, you will come away with insights into sensing and some helpful ways to apply them." -- PsychCentral "Cornell's new book offers clinicians guidance to bring Focusing into the consulting room. . . . Felt sensing, as the essence of chance, is the take-home message repeatedly pointed to throughout this volume. Though not a new finding-that accessing the felt sense has great transformative power-Cornell gracefully and eloquently articulates how Focusing works in a fresh, new way. . . . [C]linicians can also benefit from Focusing as a therapist who Focuses may also be more genuinely available and capable of doing self-care." -- International Journal of Psychotherapy
