De l'importance de l'approfondissement de l'affect en psychothérapie = On the importance of deepening of affect in psychotherapy
Deepening of affect in psychotherapy is a process that allows the patient to access more fully his/her affective experience linked to the problems. This process allows him/her to better understand this experience, aiming at a new understanding of himself/herself, the internal determinants of the problem and his/her reactions to difficult situations. Four clinical models treat this question by proposing different techniques aiming at deepening of affect in session: brief psychodynamic psychotherapy, clinical hypnosis, emotion-focused therapy, clarification-oriented psychotherapy as development of focusing. It appears that, despite diverse theoretical approaches, there exist several parallels throughout these approaches. We will summarize the research results supporting the hypothesis of affect deepening as an efficacious therapeutic process in different forms of exploratory psychotherapy.
