Book summary: Unlocking the Emotional Brain

Thanks a lot for this post! It was a very enjoyable read. Coherence Therapy seems really promising to me.

When you compare CT to CBT you write

I note that this is a common complaint that I have heard of CBT: that by defaulting to negative emotions being caused by belief distortions, CBT risks belittling those negative emotions which are actually produced by correct evaluations of the world.

What would be an example of a negative emotion produced by a correct evaluation of the world? Being depressed about how many beings are suffering in this moment?
Although this is an accurate belief, it is still mostly unhelpful to be depressed about it all the time. Would CBT and CT come to different conclusions as to what to do about it?
