Watson, Jeanne C.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v64 n3 p459-64 Jun 1996
Examined relationships among clients' descriptions of external events, emotional arousal, and resolution of problematic reactions. Clients (n=12) explored problematic reactions with their therapists on 2 separate occasions. Findings highlight the role that vivid description can play in promoting clients' emotional arousal during the session and provide preliminary evidence for the validity of the performance model. (KW)
