The Emotional Coherence Framework

'The Emotional Coherence Framework is an emotional learning and unlearning paradigm emphasizing the coherence of the emotional brain' -- Bruce Ecker

Paul Sibson - EmbodiMind - Counselling & Psychotherapy - Durham, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

The body of knowledge called ‘the emotional coherence framework’ provides a unifying account of:

  • Emotional learning and memory, with emphasis on its adaptive, coherent nature and the specific content and structure of symptom-generating emotional implicit learnings.
  • The unlearning and deletion of emotional implicit knowledge through the sequence of experiences required by the brain for memory reconsolidation.
  • The therapeutic reconsolidation process, which is the entire set of steps needed for putting into practice the required sequence of experiences in psychotherapy sessions.
