Induced Affect in Psychotherapy and Stress Management Training: Treatment Guidelines and Resources

Co-authored by two prominent psychologists, each with more than 50 years of clinical and clinical training experience, this book is directed to mental health practitioners and graduate student trainees. It describes induced affect, a clinical procedure that is becoming increasingly prominent as a means of countering emotional avoidance, increasing emotional insight, and learning adaptive emotion regulation skills. The book begins with a description of the induced affect technique, its research support, and its applications to a variety of clinical problems. It provides detailed instructions, supported by illustrative treatment transcripts, for applying the procedure in individual psychotherapy. Next, the text offers step-by-step guidelines for a six-phase empirically supported stress management program, applicable to both nonclinical and clinical populations, designed to enhance emotional resilience. The book also includes an appendix containing coping skills training materials for participants. Filled with clinical wisdom and practical guidelines, it is an indispensable training resource for health science practitioners and trainees.
