Emotion Efficacy

psychology blog continuing education acceptance commitment therapy training courses online

Many evidence-based therapies focus on teaching clients to use coping skills that will help them in moments of emotional distress. In spite of the large number of people who struggle with emotion-regulation issues, most therapies tend not to focus on the component of treatment that teaches clients to respond to emotional challenges while in a triggered state.

The normal wave pattern of emotions get interrupted and extended by three maladaptive coping strategies. The first is emotion avoidance. It’s important  to realize how the attempt to control and avoid emotions paradoxically maintains, even intensifies, emotional distress.
