Dr Melissa Harte Memorial Lecture 2022
Keeping the Focus Internal: Body, Emotion, and Meaning
Professor Leslie Greenberg
The Annual Memorial Melissa Harte Lecture was established to honour the work of Dr Melissa Harte and pay tribute to her contribution to the world of Person Centred Experiential and Emotion Focused Therapy.
The inaugural lecture marked the one year anniversary of Melissa's passing. Fittingly, Professor Leslie Greenberg gave the inaugural lecture to truly world-wide online audience. Over AU$7,000 was raised for the Australian Indigenous Psychologists Association.
Dr Melissa Harte (1959-2021), Clinical and Counselling Psychologist, was an extraordinary human with an enormous heart and boundless energy for her work. She dedicated her professional life to improving psychological services in Australia through her involvement with the Australian Psychological Society, research in Emotion Focused Therapy and the foundation of the Australian Institute of Emotion Focused Therapy. Melissa developed her model, the Extended Focusing Task, for resolving emotional injuries and trauma which is detailed in her book Processing Emotional Pain using Emotion Focused Therapy.
Melissa left an enormous legacy having transformed the lives of many through her therapeutic work, supervision and training, and having established and inspired a community of Emotion Focused Practitioners in her home town of Melbourne, Australia. Melissa will also be remembered for her enthusiastic participation in the international arena of psychotherapy. She would be absolutely thrilled that emerging Australian indigenous psychologists will receive support as a result of this event.
