New to Coherence Therapy?

Coherence Therapy, formerly known as Depth Oriented Brief Therapy, is a system of experiential, empathic psychotherapy that enables therapists to consistently foster deep, lasting shifts, dispelling clients’ symptoms at their emotional roots often in a relatively small number of sessions. The steps of Coherence Therapy carry out the process of memory reconsolidation identified by brain researchers. Understanding reconsolidation shows us exactly what gives new therapeutic experiences the potency to actually replace and erase entrenched, unwanted behaviors, beliefs and states of mind.

“It is a bold vision… as conceptually strong as it is compassionate… I wholeheartedly recommend Coherence Therapy as the most compelling incarnation of clinical constructivism on the contemporary scene.” Robert A. Neimeyer, Ph.D., Editor, Journal of Constructivist Psychology

“A brilliant breakthrough… Accessible, nonpathologizing language, sophisticated yet profoundly simple theory, and powerful therapeutic process combine to make this work of the highest significance.  I have rarely been this impressed.” Stephen M. Johnson, Ph.D., author of Character Styles, Characterological Transformation & other titles

“A challenging, precise, exciting approach… combine[s] a thoughtful attention to the unconscious with a commitment to making every session count.  Gutsy, convincing and powerful!” David B. Waters, Ph.D., Professor of Family Practice & Psychiatry, University of Virginia, author of Competence, Courage and Change

Scope of discussion has expanded to include, along with Coherence Therapy, the areas covered in Unlocking the Emotional Brain:
how deep, lasting therapeutic change
occurs through memory reconsolidation;
various systems of therapy discussed for
how they do, or do not, fulfill the brain's requirements for memory reconsolidation;
and how reconsolidation advances our understanding of psychotherapy integration, attachment work, and specific versus
common factors.
