Revue de presse

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 and Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma; recipient of the USABP Lifetime Achievement Award

Présentation de l'éditeur

A therapy technique for inner awareness and meaningful change.

“Focusing” is a particular process of attention that supports therapeutic change, a process that has been linked in more than 50 research studies with successful outcomes in psychotherapy. First developed by pioneering philosopher and psychotherapist Eugene Gendlin, Focusing quietly inspired much of the somatically oriented, mindfulness-based work being done today. Yet what makes Focusing a truly revolutionary approach to therapeutic change has been little understood—until now.

Focusing is based on a radically different understanding of the body as inherently meaningful and implicitly wise. Mere intellectualizing or talking about problems can keep clients stuck in their old patterns of behavior. Focusing introduces the concept of the “felt sense,” a moment in process when there is a potential to experience more than is already known and to break through old, frozen, stuck patterns. Clients who see real change during the course of their therapy work are often those who can contact and stay with a felt sense—but how to help them do so is not obvious.

Ann Weiser Cornell, who has been teaching Focusing to clinicians for more than 30 years, shows how to help clients get felt senses and nurture them when they appear, how to work with clients who have difficulty feeling in the body, how to facilitate a “felt shift,” how to support clients who experience dysregulating emotional states, and much more. Beginning with a clear explanation of what makes Focusing so potentially transformative, she goes on to show how to effectively incorporate Focusing with other treatment modalities and use it to treat a range of client issues, notably trauma, addiction, and depression.

Designed to be immediately applicable for working clinicians and filled with practical strategies, clinical examples, and vignettes, this book shows step by step how to bring Focusing into any kind of clinical practice. Cornell expertly demonstrates the Focusing process unfolding, moment by moment, in the therapy room, and illuminates its powerful capacity to support a client’s growth and change.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Outstanding!!! 28 juillet 2013
Par R. Zubizarreta - Publié sur Amazon.com

I am delighted to be reading Ann Weiser Cornell's new book introducing the value of Focusing practice to therapists!
Being in touch with the living edge of our own present-moment experience can be a fertile source of fresh meaning and whole-body insights,
opening into authentic growth and transformation.

A bit of self-disclosure here: I am not unbiased, as I have been a Focusing practitioner since 1998.
Still, the research base for this contemporary, body-based awareness practice, originally developed by Eugene Gendlin in the 60's,
has been growing slowly but steadily for the last 50 years, along with a world-wide network of practitioners,
so there are many of us who find this work enormously helpful.

Any therapist who wants to help clients connect more deeply with their own selves will find something of value here.
In particular, clinicians who are already drawn to mindfulness practices will find great value in this Western approach that blends both mind and heart.
Clinicians who are already practicing "inner relationship modalities" such as Voice Dialogue and Internal Family Systems therapy,
will find that an awareness of the Focusing process supports and deepens their work with clients.
Similarly for those already working with somatic approaches...

Of course, we can most effectively share this with others, when we ourselves are engaging in this deeply renewing and life-enhancing practice.
In addition to enhancing the work we are already doing with clients, Focusing (and Focusing-based peer supervision groups,
and/or Focusing partnerships) can be a vital part of self-care as mental health practitioners.

And so I am celebrating this extremely well-written, thorough, and clear book, designed to introduce clinicians to the world of Focusing...
kudos to Ann Weiser Cornell, and a warm welcome to all!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Experiencing the Process of Focusing 22 août 2013
Par Deirdre C. Patrick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Ann Weiser Cornell has achieved that rare synthesis of the mechanics of Focusing in psychotherapy and the inherent philosophy of the implicit which underlies the practice and is the life work of Gene Gendlin, her mentor. Her great strenth as a linguist gives her a sensitivity to words and their implications. After all as a psychologist my material is words, not medications. Ann's deep experience and clarity in the use of words as simple as "hello" and "something" change the experience of the client.
She points out the difference between saying, "I am angry." and "Something in me is angry." In the first we are our anger. In the second we are aware of our anger but not overwhelmed by it. This awareness is key to Ann's work. She terms it the "self-in-presence," positing an aware self, observing the many levels of feelings and inneractions between them, but not being the feelings themselves. When I first heard her use this phrase I was in one of her workshops at the Focusing Institute Summer School in Garrison, New York, about five years ago. I heard it initially as the "selfing presence," and I still like that "selfing," as it points to the active nature of this awareness of feeling. Most importantly, Ann provides a model for a healthy, present self which can allow awareness of whatever is experienced and in this way open a direction for growth in the individual, often blocked by the attempt to avoid suffering.
This is only one of literally hundreds of skillful and carefuly crafted rewordings, opening the possibility of the next step. It is also a great read, Ann writes lucidly and specifically while maintaining the underpinings of Gene's philosophy with firm grounding, thus making this a rare book--deeply intelligent and very much of this world.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you want to use "best practice" techniques, there's no excuse not to have this book! 2 août 2014
Par David M. Bell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Ann Weiser Cornell has written one of the two main books on integrating Focusing into psychotherapeutic practice. Although Dr. Gendlin's book on the subject is a great starting point, this book takes you in a very precise way through the process of integrating Focusing seamlessly into practice. In my personal Focusing practice, I don't find her method of facilitative language to be any more or less helpful than the other methods of Focusing, but in my therapy practice her methods are astounding! I know the other experiential methods she mentions in this book: AEDP, IFS, EFT and so on, but Focusing in the way described in this book is just as powerful.

In a practice heavily informed by attachment theory and emotion-focused/experiential meta-theory, I have found Focusing to be the most accessible and powerful method out there. You don't need the hairsplitting precision of some of the other (still superb) experiential psychotherapies, to be effective and cause rapid change.

Just today I used some of Dr. Fosha's and ISTDP methods with a client with great effectiveness. But I could only get there through the methods of Focusing.

I have read this book three times since its release (it's that readable) and have written my own shorthand on how to do her method. It's like how most therapists, when all else fails and they don't know what to do, go to the baseline practice of reflective language. For a more experiential therapist, the jumping off point is Focusing. If you can Focus with a client, you can get anywhere else.

I thank Dr. Cornell for this book and how it will help me with my career success above and beyond my level of experience.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful, interesting, fun, clear, love it 17 novembre 2013

Wonderful book!
As a Focusing teacher, and after learning with you Ann so much, and many other wonderful Focusing teachers - I didn't know what to expect from this book. Will it be new to me? And I was even more suspicious since it was written for people who don't know Focusing. But anything you wrote taught me so much. So of course I pre-ordered it.

What a pleasant surprise!
From the very begining of the preface, I was fascinated with your clear description of the origin of Focusing, then the comparison to other methods - very eye opening! Then you continue to clear and informative descriptions of how to use Focusing with clients, when, why... It is true that I know a lot of it - but some tips and empasys here and there are PRICELESS! and I do think that people that learned less with you Ann will have many many surprises here.

Bottom line - if you work with people (therapists, coaches) and don't know Focusing - amazing introduction and learning of this powerful tool, which has changed my whole career as a coach and escalated my ability to work with clients..
And if you do know Focusing - this book is pure enjoyment and some more learning.

Thank you!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not just for therapists, but for anyone interested in self-liberation 8 décembre 2013
Par redwoodjohn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This well composed book is a great explanation of the Focusing approach, from its background history and philosophical underpinnings to its eloquent application by Ann Weiser Cornell and associates. Especially helpful are the various representative case examples used to illustrate the effective use of empathic language and attitude grounded in Self-in-Presence. Having worked with groups of men in the role of peer counselor for over 15 years, I have found that Cornell's Focusing approach is the most helpful in helping men liberate themselves from childhood trauma, past conditioning, and dysfunctional patterns.
