Leslie Greenberg is known in psychology circles throughout the world as one of the primary developers of emotion-focused therapy (EFT). He’s “the last big innovator” in psychotherapy, says Lars Nielsen of the BYU Counseling and Career Center. In addition, “He looks amazingly like Santa Claus. He’s somebody you’d like to be in psychotherapy with.”

Now retired from York University in Toronto where he was professor of psychology and director of the Psychotherapy Research Center, Greenberg spends his time training psychotherapists and counselors around the world in emotion-focused therapy.
