For most people, even the ordinary demands of life can cause some feelings of unease and stress, and these stressful thoughts and feelings may result in chronic mental and physical fatigue or anxiety.

The seemingly simple act of mindfulness helps reduce the impact of stress, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. Mindfulness is the act of paying attention to moments of experience with an accepting and friendly attitude so as to observe with all the senses what is happening in each moment. The practice of mindfulness is an effective means of enhancing and maintaining optimal mental health and overall well-being, and can be implemented in every aspect of daily living. Mindfulness has been applied to a variety of mental and physical disorders and has also been useful within educational, military, and corporate settings.

In this video, Dr. Rezvan Ameli demonstrates three mindfulness exercises within a group therapy setting and also discusses the science and practice of mindfulness.

MINDFULNESS FOR INSOMNIA
Insomnia occurs when individuals who frequently suffer from chronic sleep disturbance try harder to sleep or develop an anxious response when they are unable to sleep. Mindfulness-based therapy for insomnia, or MBTI, combines mindfulness principles and practices with behavioral techniques to treat this common issue.

MBTI teaches clients with insomnia how to use meditation practices to cultivate mindful awareness and change how they may be thinking about their insomnia symptoms. Practicing mindfulness meditation helps clients see their thoughts and desires as dynamic mental events and helps avoid becoming fixated on achieving specific outcomes or goals. This process, called metacognitive shifting, is one of the keys to reducing the symptoms of chronic insomnia.

In this video, Dr. Jason C. Ong works with a group of young male clients who are all suffering from various sleep issues. In this demonstration, Dr. Ong teaches behavioral strategies within a mindfulness framework to help the group learn how to cope with periods of wakefulness at night.

Exposure to trauma due to abuse or violence can increase risk for aggressive behavior in relationships. Intimate partner violence is more likely when an individual is suffering with trauma-related problems such as PTSD, as is sometimes the case in families with members who served in military combat positions.

Empirically validated, trauma-informed therapeutic interventions are essential to addressing such violence. These interventions help clients recognize a need to take responsibility for their abusive behavior and to develop effective conflict resolution skills.

In this video, Dr. Casey Taft demonstrates this approach by helping a group of four men acknowledge intimate partner violence in their lives and take necessary steps towards remaining nonviolent.

Follow eleven college students as they undergo the nation's most rigorous training to answer calls on a suicide hotline.

Since the early 70's, Headquarters in Lawrence, KS, has been at the forefront of volunteer crisis counseling. With a uniquely rigorous training program, HQ volunteers undergo several weeks of study and guided role-play in preparation to deal with callers who are in crisis - often on the edge of self-destruction.

THE LISTENERS follows eleven carefully-selected volunteers who undergo this training, which demands more of them psychologically than they ever expected, a personal sacrifice that also encourages personal growth, and prepares them to be courageous and empathetic in a way that years of collective experience have proven effective. Learning how to listen with empathy and without judging proves harder and more taxing than the volunteers imagined, and mastering the skills necessary to save lives becomes a quest that will change their own forever.

Conducting family therapy can feel like an impossible juggling act, where complicated dynamics can make effective interventions elusive to the best of us. Successful clinicians must make sense of a family’s needs as a whole, as well as facilitate work within the relationships that impact the entire system. In this video, renowned family therapist Virginia Satir leads a powerful session with a family dealing with substance abuse and codependency. Satir’s natural facility with families is astounding even today, and you’ll gain a deep appreciation of her legacy as she progresses this challenged family several steps closer to resolution.

After introducing her "universal family map", explaining the various relational configurations within families, Satir conducts a stirring session with a family struggling with the repercussions of 29-year-old son Michael’s longstanding drug addiction. You’ll witness Satir’s skill at building authentic rapport with the five members, while shedding light on their complex family dynamics using a series of hands-on interventions. Even through the intensity and resistance that arises during the interview, Satir maintains a grounded environment that supports honest cross-communication, staying one step ahead of the family in order to address their most pressing relational issues.

Throughout the session, Satir draws upon her considerable intuitive skill to develop interventions in the moment; builds a quick and easy rapport with the family through her plain language, humor, and warmth; physically immerses herself in the family unit as she facilitates experiential constellations; and applies a firm, at times confrontational, attitude toward family members, all while furthering their sense of hope and possibility.

This is an essential resource for therapists looking to learn more about family systems, assessment, creative interventions, and Satir’s unique, bold style. With both commentary and a full-length bonus video from Satir’s early students, plus a didactic introduction from Satir herself, this is a video you’ll enjoy from start to finish.

Facilitating successful group therapy is a delicate balancing act - and without the proper preparation, it can easily go awry. Keeping group members engaged, interspersing psychoeducation where appropriate, and managing cross-communication are just a few of the pressing issues that effective leaders must understand. In this comprehensive video, Drs. Ed Jacobs and Christine Schimmel demonstrate these skills and more as they co-facilitate a counseling group for eight women. Using a variety of interventions and techniques, these seasoned clinicians provide an insightful look at the key elements of this approach.

You’ll observe the group move through three distinct phases as the women work collaboratively on a wide range of issues including divorce, addiction, anxiety, and parenting. Jacobs and Schimmel invite members to support one another through reflection, role-play, and crosstalk, while modeling many techniques themselves and providing thoughtful activities to keep everyone engaged and focused. Voice-over commentary breaks down these skills even further, so that viewers can identify them as they’re presented.

The importance of having a variety of theoretical approaches to group therapy is stressed, and you’ll watch Jacobs and Schimmel integrate tools from Adlerian, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and Rational Emotive Therapy into their work. Interventions abound here, and you’ll find a host of ideas to stimulate your thinking about group dynamics, deepening and shifting focus, the use of props and handouts, and teaching concepts and ideas.

By the end, the women are clearly moved, expressing new hope about their lives, gratitude for a shared experience of camaraderie, and an increased sense of self-confidence. Regardless of your theoretical orientation, if you’re interested in different approaches to group work with adults, you’ll find this video invaluable.

"Mindfulness" has been a tantalizing therapy buzzword for several years now, but what exactly is it? For many clinicians - not to mention clients and the general public - the concept is mystifying, despite its increasing mainstream popularity. Wonder no more with this comprehensive new video featuring Dr. Ronald D. Siegel, a longtime mindfulness-oriented psychotherapist and expert in the approach. Here, you’ll discover how mindfulness differs from meditation, folds into treatment for a vast range of clinical issues, and supports our own personal and professional growth.

Mindfulness is simultaneously a set of experiential practices and a philosophical stance, and Siegel demonstrates both in four sessions with very different clients. You’ll watch Siegel promote a "felt sense of meaning" with Carl, a man in his sixties with past suicidal ideation and current financial stress. With Julia, a woman in her 20s grieving multiple deaths and suffering from anxiety, Siegel emphasizes the somatic element of mindfulness. Teaching her to track her moment-to-moment physical experience with acceptance rather than aversion, Siegel helps Julia reframe her anxiety as physical tension that she can begin to release with mindful awareness.

You’ll also watch Lorraine, a middle-aged woman with chronic back pain, benefit from Siegel’s integrative knowledge to get in touch with her present-moment experience of fear, which may actually exacerbate her condition. Finally, you’ll observe Mac, a Japanese-American man who lived in an internment camp as a child, move toward greater emotional awareness in his desire to connect with his wife.

Siegel supports his clients with practices and psychoeducation, and the viewer with useful commentary that details his interventions and outlines his goals. His approach to mindfulness is both accessible and grounded, making it a suitable adjunct to modalities ranging from the cognitive to the psychodynamic to the humanistic. If you’re a clinician wanting to understand what mindfulness looks like and how it can fit into your work, you’ll find this to be an excellent resource.

Bill O’Hanlon, psychotherapist and author of Do One Thing Different and Solution-Oriented Spirituality

"Clinicians often ask, 'How exactly do I introduce mindfulness into psychotherapy?' 'Should it be different for different people or disorders?' 'How does mindfulness fit into the rest of treatment?' In this insightful video, senior therapist and lifelong mindfulness student Dr. Ronald Siegel offers us answers—effectively demonstrating with real client interviews how, when, and why we might introduce various practices into therapy. It’s an invaluable resource for beginning therapists and experienced clinicians alike."
Christopher Germer, PhD, clinical instructor, Harvard Medical School; coeditor, Mindfulness and Psychotherapy; author, The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion

"We can read about incorporating mindfulness into psychotherapy, but so much more is to be gained by seeing it in action. In this excellent video, Ron Siegel, one of the pioneers of mindfulness in psychotherapy, takes us step by step through the theory and practice of using mindfulness with clients. His many years of experience, wisdom, and compassion shine through. This inspiring and informative video will be indispensable for clinicians and lay people alike."

As clinicians, we seek to support individual change - but to what extent are we influenced by the institutions that surround us? Can we ignore the role of systems in our work with clients, or does treatment involve addressing one’s environment as well? In this video, Dr. Philip Zimbardo illuminates the longstanding nature vs. nurture debate in a deep discussion about evil, heroism, and the psychological conditions that impact which way we turn. Here, the former APA president and leader of the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment goes back decades to tell us the story of its participants, the ways in which we internalize the roles given to us, and the compelling ways these factors are still playing out today.

Over the course of his long career, Zimbardo has tackled the question of morality, seeking to understand the power of situations over individuals that lead to corruption and compliance. The 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment was the most notorious of his studies, and here Zimbardo describes its methodology, goals, unraveling, and abrupt cancellation after only six days of its planned two-week run. You’ll watch him reflect on the harsh conditions leading a college-aged group of "otherwise good people" to turn against each other, and hear about his ongoing regrets comingled with important lessons about human nature.

Zimbardo discusses issues such as compliance (what causes us to look the other way), learned helplessness (through the gradual acclimation to fearful situations), and "the illusion of personal invulnerability" - the idea that we would make better choices in similar situations. He goes on to discuss his work as an analyst during the Abu Ghraib trials, bringing his expertise to bear on the psychological processes at work among the guards.

Ultimately, though, Zimbardo’s objective is hopeful: to uncover what inspires heroic acts and promote the development of our collective moral compass. If you’re interested in understanding how psychological and systemic forces create good or evil, you won’t want to miss this compelling interview.

Dr. Amy Wenzel demonstrates this empirically validated approach over the course of six sessions with one client.

Cognitive behavioral theory posits that modifying ones thoughts can change not only cognitions, but also behaviors and feelings. Similarly, behavioral strategies can produce fairly immediate reductions in emotional distress, while also serving as agents of cognitive change. This approach has proven effective for treating clients presenting with a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, anger, addictions, personality disorders, and adjustment to medical illness.

In this video program, Dr. Wenzel works with a young woman in college who is trying to maintain a healthy life balance despite a stressful home environment in which she functions as caregiver to two family members. Over the course of treatment, Dr. Wenzel uses cognitive restructuring to engage the client in identifying, evaluating, and modifying the thoughts and underlying beliefs related to her stress and anxiety.

Dr. Pamela A. Hays, PhD demonstrates an approach to therapy that focuses on helping alleviate a client's presenting issues in a manner best suited to the client's cultural identity, context, and preferences.

This approach seeks ways to explain and adapt techniques so that they make sense from the client's perspective. Such adaptation validates the client's experiences, which in turn can encourage the client to consider the need for change, resulting in overall greater therapeutic effectiveness.

In this program, Dr. Hays demonstrates her approach over the course of six sessions with a middle-aged Polish-American woman experiencing anxiety and depression. Using culturally adaptive language, Dr. Hays works with the client to change unhelpful thoughts to more empowering ones, and helps her to recognize her faith as a potent resource during this process of change.

In 1992 Professor Richard Davidson, one of the world's leading neuroscientists, met the Dalai Lama, who encouraged him to apply the same rigorous methods he used to study depression and anxiety to the study of compassion and kindness, those qualities cultivated by Tibetan meditation practice. The results of Davidson's studies at the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, are portrayed in Free the Mind as they are applied to treating PTSD in returning Iraqi vets and children with ADHD. The film poses two fundamental questions: What really is consciousness, and how does it manifest in the brain and body? And is it possible to physically change the brain solely through mental practices?

This series deals with adverse drug reactions or events - the side effects that sometimes arise with the various medications used to treat psychiatric illnesses. The series is divided into three programs.

The first program looks at generalized side effects, or side effects that occur across multiple classes of psychotropic medications. The second program explores side effects specific to one medication or to one particular class of medication. And the third program deals with extrapyramidal side effects, also known as movement disorders.

Collectively, these programs cover side effects across a wide range of severity, from simply uncomfortable to life-threatening. Each program describes the symptoms of these side effects and equips the healthcare provider with strategies to help them identify and treat these disorders. Throughout the programs, art, animation, and dramatic situations are utilized to enhance the material presented.

Multidimensional family therapy (MDFT) is a comprehensive, family-centered treatment for adolescent substance abuse and delinquency. The treatment integrates theoretical frameworks from family therapy and psychotherapy along with knowledge about how adolescent problems arise. MDFT addresses areas of adolescent and parent functioning known to create problems and enhances the factors that solve problems, improve relationships, and restore positive development.

In this film, Dr. Howard Liddle, developer of MDFT, works with 16-year-old Christian, who has been arrested for purchasing marijuana. The film includes nine condensed therapy sessions with Christian, his mother - a single parent struggling with personal issues, and Christian’s school counselor. The session highlights the key areas of focus and core interventions in the integrated MDFT approach, and enumerates the model’s three stages. Dr. Liddle provides summaries of session segments and offers brief presentations on the core sections of the MDFT.

The design and format of the film demonstrates the thought processes of a therapist using MDFT, and offers a behind-the-scenes experience of the model.

Presence in psychotherapy, considered to be a fundamental underlying quality of an effective therapeutic relationship, is essentially the state of having one's whole self in the encounter with a client by being completely in the moment on a multiplicity of levels: physically, emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually.

Not a replacement for technique, presence in psychotherapy is a foundational stance that supports deep listening and understanding of the client in the moment, and is also a framework for psychotherapy that fosters a deep client/therapist connection through various aspects, such as the awareness of bodily sensations, emotions, and perception. Being fully present allows for an attuned responsiveness that is based on a kinesthetic and emotional sensing of the other's experience as well as one's own intuition and skill, and the relationship between both.

In this demonstration, Dr. Shari Geller works with a woman who, after the loss of her brother and father, sought out the opportunity to release long-held feelings of deep pain and depression.

With a continuously increasing aging population, there has been a commensurate rise in cases of dementia as well as incidences of adults assuming caregiving for family members and spouses.

Because dementia is a progressive deterioration in cognitive functions that leads to intellectual, emotional, and behavioral changes, it presents significant challenges to the patient and caregiver alike. Often, the caregivers of older adults with dementia experience feelings of depression and anxiety as they attempt to care for their loved ones.

In this video, Dr. Susan M. McCurry discusses and demonstrates her contextual approach to working specifically with caregivers of those who have been diagnosed with dementia. Dr. McCurry meets with a middle-aged husband and wife who equally share the responsibility of taking care of the husband's mother, who has been diagnosed with dementia. Dr. McCurry helps the clients discuss their personal choices and cope with their life-altering transitions.

The population of people over the age of 65 is one of the most rapidly growing groups. Therefore, it is essential for therapists who work closely with older adults to be able to define and administer an effective course of therapeutic treatment.

For older adults with mental health issues, problem-solving skills can weaken as a result of cognitive decline in late life. Problem-solving therapy is especially suited for work with older adults because it encourages the client to define his or her problems concretely in terms of the stimuli, responses, and consequences.

In this video, Dr. Patricia Areán demonstrates the effective use of problem-solving therapy with a 62 year old retired woman who is the sole caregiver of her grandchild, as well as both of her parents. The client has been struggling with depression, severe mood swings, and sleeplessness for about five years.

A feature presentation by Cardwell Nuckols from a day-long workshop. In addition to a discussion of the Alcoholics Anonymous Sixth Step, Dr. Nuckols also explores other spiritually based systems. He shows how not addressing these issues can lead to relapse and other self-defeating behaviors. At the root of these defects are narcissistic beliefs about the self (I, me, mine) and a distorted self-image.

Defects of character respond poorly to psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy, and are more amenable to change utilizing spiritual tools such as humility, honesty, acceptance and surrender. This workshop teaches clinicians how to assist clients in the removal of these defects, including pride, greed, jealousy and envy. Understanding that "I am jealous and I will change" is an illusion and the fact change occurs in the "moment" is at the heart of this transformation.

At its inception, medicine was an art utilizing science as a tool; "the healing art". Today practitioners are overwhelmed with science with little or no attention to the art. The talk is of treatment and management often with a goal of symptom reduction or tolerable recovery. The words "to heal" speak not of reduction or abstinence but of a spiritual freedom to fully experience life "in the present moment.

Two double-blind studies give differing results-one shows that a certain therapeutic approach is extremely effective and the other shows the statistical equivalent to placebo. What is the difference? It is primarily related to the healing potential manifest by the clinicians. The question then becomes, can this ability be acquired? The answer is this ability is already there-has always been there and always will be there. This course simply helps guide the participant back toward their healing essence.

This self-enhancing experience is designed to assist the helping person intuitively further develop their art and science while enhancing their personal ability to help others heal.

To be able to understand and utilize current research, a clinician needs some understanding of the brain and its complexity. In many ways the brain still remains a mystery; neuroimaging and other forms of research, however, have uncovered some of the story about how our brains operate. In this staff training program, participants will learn about the various descriptions and regions of the brain and how these regions function and relate. From this understanding, the clinician can better understand how wellness, psychotherapy, pharmacotherapy and spiritual tools aid in the recovery of their clients.

Prior to the onset of organizations such as the Oxford Group and Alcoholics Anonymous, most alcoholics died from their disease or its complications. Since 1935 over 200 research studies have provided evidence that millions have entered recovery utilizing 12-step programs. Over the past decades, a rigorous science of recovery has emerged. Some of this science comes from evidence based studies of the treatment of early life trauma in early recovery. The social sciences, spiritual disciplines (Christianity, Buddhism, etc.) and enhancement of health from meditation practices such as mindfulness merge seamlessly into the understanding of 12-Step facilitated recovery. Quantum physics and neuroscience, including scientific studies of spiritual states, neuroimaging of the brain, and studies of genetic influence on a person’s predisposition for addictive disorders also contribute. Completing the picture, research findings in neurobiology reveal how psychoactive drugs work within the brain to cause the many manifestations of addictive disorders.

This understanding has been intuitively realized by millions of alcoholics, addicts, clinicians, and others who have observed - sometimes against all odds - what can only be called the miracle of recovery. Now we can scientifically understand and treat much of what has in the past been relegated to anecdotal lore and mystery.

Decades of research have shown that exposure therapy is by far the most effective way to get long-lasting results in the treatment of specific phobias, but most therapists have never had a chance to see exposure therapy in action, let alone be trained in it. Here, prominent anxiety expert Reid Wilson shows you how it’s done, as he conducts two remarkable sessions with a woman suffering from claustrophobia. 177 minutes #15194

COGNITIVE THERAPY FOR PANIC DISORDER
Panic disorder is a devastating and debilitating anxiety disorder; often there is no clear precipitant that triggers the panic attacks, and therapists are often mystified about how to help their clients get them under control. Exposure Therapy is often cited as the treatment of choice, but most therapists have never witnessed, much less been trained in this approach. Here, anxiety disorder expert Reid Wilson shows you how it’s done in this remarkable live session with a woman whose panic disorder has made her life completely unmanageable. 68 minutes #15891

ENGAGING THE AMBIVALENT OCD CLIENT
Working with therapeutic resistance is often discussed in psychotherapy training, but the ambivalent OCD client poses a unique challenge for clinicians. Here, anxiety expert Reid Wilson demonstrates a counterintuitive cognitive-behavioral approach to confronting safety-seeking behaviors that can help these clients maintain commitment to recovery. If you’re looking for a fresh understanding of OCD and effective ways to treat its self-reinforcing nature, you’ll find it in Wilson’s engaging, lively approach. 182 minutes #15622

TREATING THE SEVERE OCD CLIENT
Severe OCD can seem hopelessly intractable, especially when a client has invested significant time in past therapy. Here, anxiety disorder expert Reid Wilson employs a variation of cognitive and strategic methods in two live sessions, demonstrating his paradoxical approach to tackling obsessive thinking. 182 minutes #15623

Dr. Linda A. Reddy demonstrates evidence-based approaches to implementing cognitive-behavioral group play interventions with children who are 4 to10 years old. Often times, children with neurocognitive and behavioral issues such as ADHD, have trouble interacting with other children and adults.

The cognitive-behavioral approach shown here uses group play interventions to help children develop prosocial skills such as sharing, asking for and offering help. Dr. Reddy's group-play interventions include a multimodal approach that integrates cognitive-behavioral interventions and skill-intensive opportunities for learning through teaching modalities, as well as structured group therapy interventions.

In this video, Dr. Reddy demonstrates cognitive-behavioral group play interventions with four elementary-aged school children through several exercises in developmentally appropriate games.

Because angry clients present unique challenges for clinicians, a uniquely tailored game plan is essential for success. In this engaging video for mental health professionals of all types, anger experts Dr. Howard Kassinove and Dr. Raymond Chip Tafrate present live case examples of their anger episode model - an empirically developed approach geared specifically to anger management. With behavioral definitions, thorough assessment strategies, and structured interventions, this comprehensive resource serves as an invaluable guide to best practices with this difficult population.

Kassinove and Tafrate break down the model via live sessions with a broad range of clients. You’ll watch Tafrate gain the trust of Carmelo, a young man who needs convincing that the volatile components of his anger warrant treatment. Lisa learns to self-soothe with progressive muscle relaxation, a widely adaptable mindfulness exercise led here by Kassinove. In a nod to Albert Ellis, Kassinove introduces the ABC method to Joan, a mother angered by her adult daughter’s continued rejection of her phone calls (or so she thinks!).

Problem-solving, the provocative "Barb technique", and forgiveness are covered too - the latter demonstrated in a heart-rending conversation between Tafrate and Walt, a man who found healing through the long process of forgiving his son’s murderer. Differentiating forgiving from forgetting, condoning, or excusing, Tafrate validates both the sensitivity of his client’s experience and the clinical use of forgiveness as a powerfully effective intervention.

Highlighting both change and acceptance, the two experts demonstrate key concepts and take you through the various stages of the anger experience. In an empathic, methodical, and informative style, they cover assessing and increasing client motivation, recognizing and working with triggers, shifting maladaptive cognitive appraisals, and more.

Simply put, this video is a must-have in your anger management arsenal. Whatever your theoretical orientation, you’ll find a plethora of enlightening tools to help clients reduce and manage their anger.

USFSP Psychology Professor V. Mark Durand - a leading authority on autism - demonstrates his positive parenting approach to working with mothers and fathers of children who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

ASD is an increasingly common diagnosis among children, and symptoms such as repetitive behaviors and communication deficiencies can challenge parents, often affecting their personal relationships and daily activities. The evidence-based approach demonstrated in this video focuses on increasing a sense of hope in these parents.

In this video, Dr. Durand works with a single-mother of an 8-year old boy with autism spectrum disorder. He helps her see that how she thinks about herself and her son impacts on her relationship with him at home. He then helps her focus on seeing the improvements she has seen in her son's behavior over time, and encourages her to take credit for these positive changes.

James F. Alexander demonstrates his approach to working with families that have teenage children exhibiting behavior issues and associated emotional disruptions.

Teens with behavior problems are one of the most difficult populations with whom therapists work, as adolescents and their families frequently enter treatment against their will, either under legal order or at strong insistence of authority figures such as school administrators. Family interactions can be hostile, and a sense of hopelessness is not uncommon.

Dr. Alexander's approach involves working to increase family motivation to change by disrupting negative attributions they may have about themselves and other family members and replacing these with more positive and adaptive attributions.

In this video, Dr. Alexander works with a mother, father, and their 15-year-old son, who has been exhibiting behavior problems such as drug use and school truancy and who has recently been charged with breaking and entering. The session focuses not only on the son, but also the mother and father, whose relationship has been under significant strain for years due to the mother's own substance use and frequent disappearances from the family.

Debbie Joffe Ellis demonstrates this influential and impactful approach to psychotherapy.

Originated by Albert Ellis, rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) is based on the seemingly simple idea that it is not external events that make people happy or unhappy, but rather their internal thoughts about the events or themselves. In this approach, the therapist works to teach clients to identify and challenge their harmful irrational thinking and develop more beneficial and rational habits of thought. The shift toward more rational thinking in turn enables clients to behave more effectively and to create healthy emotions.

In this video, Dr. Joffe Ellis works with a woman in her 60s going through a divorce who is feeling stuck and hopeless. Dr. Joffe Ellis helps the client to recognize the difference between her thoughts and feelings and to begin to identify irrational thoughts and replace them with healthy and rational thoughts that will help her create new, positive, and realistic possibilities in her life.

How can therapists work most effectively with clients from different cultural backgrounds? Despite the rise in cross-cultural training, many clinicians are still mystified about how to actually integrate multicultural issues and interventions into their work with clients. In this conversation between Victor Yalom and Derald Wing Sue - the renowned psychologist who literally wrote the book on multicultural counseling - we learn about the origins of Sue’s research, the ways in which conventional practice has both neglected and harmed clients of color, and clinical practices and interventions that all therapists can use to become more culturally aware and competent.

Multicultural counseling, says Sue, is the development of cultural competence with minority groups - yet this seemingly simple idea has represented a complex, and controversial, paradigm shift in the field. In his experience first as a student and later as a new clinician, Sue discovered that not only were members of minority groups failing to take advantage of psychotherapy, but those who did didn’t last. He sought to find out why, and his answers became the foundation for the thought-provoking theories on race and clinical practice that have been cited for more than three decades.

Culture- and class-bound values, white privilege, and implicit bias are just a few of the factors Sue addresses here. Inappropriate at best and oppressive at worst, therapeutic interventions based on these factors serve to pathologize difference, alienate minority clients, and erode the therapeutic alliance. Sue describes these phenomena in detail, along with an overview of microagressions, developing multicultural competence, and his unique training program designed to immerse students in diverse cultures.

If you’re looking to deepen your knowledge of cross-cultural concepts or want to see them presented by their originator, watch this interview for eye-opening insights and tools you can start using right away.

While therapeutic resources for heterosexual couples are plentiful, there’s very little available for therapists working with same sex couples. We are proud to offer this long-awaited video featuring one of the best and most popular couples therapists today, Dr. Sue Johnson, founder of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).

Tim and Andrew have come to therapy to understand why their 28-year relationship feels emotionally "bankrupt", leaving them both feeling isolated and misunderstood. Janie and Kelly are looking for ways to de-escalate the tensions that have led Janie to "the precipice" of leaving their six-year partnership. After building a therapeutic foundation with a handful of EFT sessions, their respective therapists have enlisted Johnson for case consultation. You’ll be treated to both the case consultations as well as sessions with Johnson and each of the couples.

As Johnson builds a trusting alliance with each couple, watch her meticulously inquire into their dynamics, cyclical patterns, and emotional experiences. Calm and heartfelt, yet incisive, deliberate, and firm, she gently directs the couples into ever-deepening emotional communication using EFT techniques such as reframes, heightening, and enactments that emphasize attachment needs.

In addition to these EFT tools, you’ll discover how cultural conditions impact same-sex partnerships and the emotional processes EFT is so effective in uncovering. Johnson’s non defensive, self-disclosing style is not only clinically skillful, but beautiful to witness. Consultation sections, a panel discussion, and well-timed commentary supplement the two live sessions, providing deep insight into the couples’ needs and Johnson’s strategy.

If you’re looking to expand your skill with couples in general or same-sex couples in particular - or if you want an invaluable demonstration of EFT from the master herself - this is the video to do it!

Assisted living decisions are often thought of as merely residential choices, but they reflect a host of considerations: Finances, healthcare, and concerns about new and unknown environments are key elements to consider during this complex process.

In this video, Claudia Drossel demonstrates an approach to therapy with caregivers and their loved ones in which the therapist's role is to put the clients' personal history and values in context as they explore the best care options for the clients' circumstances.

In this session, Dr. Drossel works with the daughter and caregiver of an elderly woman who has recently experienced a medical crisis. Although the client is not yet aware of her mother's prognosis, she struggles with an urgent need to take action immediately to protect her mother. Dr. Drossel guides the client toward being a more effective advocate for her mother as they discuss assisted living options that are supportive and in line with her mother's needs.

Culture influences how a client develops and expresses emotional distress and how that distress is healed through therapeutic intervention. Multicultural Care in Practice emphasizes culturally adapting psychotherapy to the needs of the clients, employing cultural competence to maximally connect with clients.

Becoming culturally competent involves a clinical commitment to gaining knowledge and awareness of the client's attitudes, which enables the clinician to intellectually, affectively, and culturally empathize with the client and demonstrate cultural sensitivity - showing awareness, interest, and commitment to recognizing the client's culture in all aspects of the therapeutic relationship.

Multicultural care practitioners recognize the importance of clinical competence. However, they also recognize the value of cultural competence, and research indicates that clients who perceive their therapist to be culturally competent have better outcomes in therapy.

In this demonstration, Dr. Lillian Comas-Díaz works with an African American woman who is making a decision about dating a partner outside of her own culture. Dr. Comas-Díaz demonstrates cultural empathy in working with the client, discussing how this decision will impact the client's relationship with her family and how to preserve that relationship while remaining true to herself.

Teach your employees how social rules, unconscious biases, and "group think" heavily influence how we analyze and make decisions.

Dr. Philip Zimbardo has spent his career in social psychology - the study of human nature and how we’re influenced by others and by social rules internalized in childhood. His research shows how we tend to be completely unaware of these influences, and often choose to act in irrational ways that can cause harm to ourselves or others.

Narrated by Dr. Zimbardo, this fascinating program offers insights into the underlying forces driving individual and group behavior. You’ll observe unsuspecting human subjects in twenty situations that test the boundaries of individualism and group mentality. Watch them all or choose the scenes that best fit your training goals.

Watch examples of how we judge others:
* Weighted heavily by first impressions
* Based on their personal appearance
* Through identification with groups

Or how social situations drive behavior:
* When we want to be accepted and fit in
* Passively deferring to a "group norm"
* Through obedience to authority

PERSONALITY THEORIES is a comprehensive survey course that examines the fundamental principles behind our most valued schools of psychological thought. The course, taught by Professor Terri P. Schwartz of Governor State University, covers five major trends in personality analysis: Early analytical theories; Behaviorist approaches; Social and interpersonal theories; Academic techniques of personality study; Growth-oriented techniques of personality study. As a survey course, Personality Theories offers a landscape view of modern psychology. The course helps students identify and inter-relate the contributions of each psychological theory by assigning it to one of five distinct categories: Early analytical theories, as exemplified by Adler, Jung, and Freud; Behaviorist approaches advocated by Bandura, Dollard, and Skinner; Social and interpersonal theories advanced by Adler, Horney, Sullivan, and Fromm; Academic techniques of personality study used by Allport, Eysenck, Murray, and Kelly; Growth-oriented techniques of personality study typified by the theories of Laing, Maslow, and Rogers

*** The following programs are included in the series:

1. AN INTRODUCTION
Sets out the objectives, methodology, and expectations of the course. Students are introduced to the difference between "person" and "personality", and they are invited to assess their current assumptions and attitudes toward two people they know - one they like and one they don't.

2. THE VARIETY OF PERSONALITY THEORIES
Defines terminology pertinent to all personality theories. Students learn how the terms "structure", "dynamics", "development", and "system" apply to the study of personality theories. The criteria for assessing the validity of a theory are discussed.

3. SIGMUND FREUD'S EARLY THEORIES
Examines the roots of psychoanalysis. The lesson traces the evolution of Freud's early clinical work on "hysteria" in the late 1800s and describes how it contributed to his early theoretical discipline. Students learn about Freud's initial theory of the mind and his interpret

4. JUNG PULLS AWAY
Defines the fundamental differences between Jung and Freud's theories. Students examine the early controversy that rose around Freud's work and how Carl Jung used his experience with clinical schizophrenic groups to develop his highly influential ideas.

5. JUNGIAN THEORY TODAY
Explores modern-day applications of Jung's ideology. The class features an interview with Peter Mudd, a Jungian analyst, who explains how Jungian ideas are understood today and how they influence contemporary practices. The major components of "psyche" according to Jung are explained.

6. FREUD'S LATER THEORIES
Focuses on Freud's updated theories in the early 20th century. The lesson revisits Freud's theories with regard to libido, instinct, id, ego, and super-ego. Freud's mind model is updated and the role of anxiety in this later work is discussed. Key Freudian terms are defined, and an interesting article suggests that the translation of Freud from German to English might have done the theorist a disservice.

7. EXTENSIONS OF PSYCHOANANALYSIS
Examines the work of Freud's successors. The lesson details the continuing influence of Freud's work in the study of child development in clinical practice and in such non-psychological areas as history and literature. Refinements to Freud's theories are discussed, including Anna Freud's theories on defense mechanisms. Distinctions are drawn between "ego psychologists" and practitioners of classical psychoanalysis.

8. OBJECT RELATIONS THEORY AND SELF PSYCHOLOGY
Reviews refinements to Freud's theory since the 1960s. The lesson touches on the contributions of such theorists as Erik Erickson, Margaret Mahler, and Anna Freud to the evolution of modern psychoanalytic thought. The Study Guide offers a review in preparation for the first exam.

9. LABORATORY APPROACHES
An introduction to behaviorism. The biological roots of behaviorism are reviewed, and the shift from psychoanalysis to science is examined. Seminal works discussed in this lesson include Ivan Pavlov's research on reflex-driven learning and Edward Thorndike's Laws of Effect and Exercise. The four characteristics of behaviorist philosophy are discussed.

10. THE RATIONAL/EMPIRICAL SPLIT IN LEARNING THEORY
Examines the dispute between two trends in learning theory. This lesson touches on the philosophical distinction between social learning theories (rational) and radical behaviorism (empirical). Students are challenged to think about how the methodology of learning research is influenced by either of these two divergent philosophies.

11. SOCIAL AND COGNITIVE LEARNING THEORIES, Part One
Discusses research that tempers radical behaviorism with intrapsychic constructs. This lesson outlines the challenge to strict behaviorist empiricism as found in the works of such researchers as John Dollard. Students learn how the "drive-cue-response-reward" model relates more to the idea of "psyche" as "mind" than classical behaviorism.

12. SOCIAL AND COGNITIVE LEARNING THEORIES, Part Two
Continues the behaviorist debate introduced in Class 11. Albert Bandura's more humanistic contributions to behaviorism are introduced. Students are challenged to compare Bandura's theory of "reciprocal determinism" to B. F. Skinner's classical behaviorist theories.

13. INTERPERSONAL AND SOCIAL ISSUES IN PERSONALITY
Introduces Adler's contributions to interpersonal theory. This lesson shows how the ideas of Alfred Adler ? a contemporary of Freud - influenced the development of modern interpersonal theories. The seven major concepts of Adler's philosophy are presented.

14. INDIVIDUAL IN A SOCIAL CONTEXT
Examines the contributions of feminine psychology. This lesson traces the development of Karen Horney's innovations in psychodynamic theory, exploring her work on feminine psychology and detailing her integration of social considerations and values into psychoanalysis.

15. SOCIAL CONTEXT AND PERSONALITY
Examines the social and political aspects of personality. The videotape features the works of Erich Fromm and Harry Sullivan with special emphasis on Fromm's social and political analysis of personality. Students learn the various forms of Fromm's "social character" and discover how interpersonal theories differ from learning theories and psychodynamic theories of personality. The Study Guide recaps important concepts.

16. GORDON ALLPORT'S STUDY OF PERSONALITY
Examines the shift toward studying the individual as a unique case. Students learn about Gordon Allport's common-sense and empirical approach to the study of individuals. The lesson covers his concept of "traits" and shows one way of identifying them.

17. HENRY MURRAY
Explores needs as a motivational factor in personality theory. The videotaped class discusses Murray's "personology", a needs-based analysis of personality influenced by Jung. Students learn to classify various needs into distinct categories and practice using TAT (Thematic Apperception Test) stories in this approach to personality analysis.

Do children who watch violent TV shows become violent themselves, or is anyone from any background capable of murder? This program explores two theories of extreme aggression: that it is learned from media and other elements of one’s social environment, and that it can be induced by the command of authority figures. Research into violence is illustrated using Milgram’s conformity experiments, Hannah Arendt’s ideas about "the banality of evil" in Nazi concentration camps, the Columbine shootings, and the tragic case of James Bulger, a toddler who was murdered in 1993 by two 10-year-olds from abusive households.

Harry is one of the most unforgettable documentaries ever produced. Actual treatment sessions, conducted by Dr. Richard M. Foxx, were filmed through a one-way mirror. At the time of this treatment, Harry was 24 years old and had spent most of his life in institutions wearing various types of physical restraints. Although only mildly retarded, the severity of his self-abuse had defeated all attempts to educate him.

The DVD shows classic examples of fading, extinction, time-out, and other basic procedures of behavioral treatment. Viewers will see the subtle changes in Harry's behavior during baseline sessions, time-out, and treatment. Dr. Foxx's narration enhances the documentary footage as he explains how the treatment techniques were developed, evaluated, and continually modified as treatment progressed.

Multiculturalist psychologists have effectively advocated for "culturally competent" counseling interventions. They often cite traditional healing as an important resource for developing integrative forms of psychotherapy that are distinctively tailored to diverse populations. And yet, detailed consideration of this integrative project has appeared infrequently in psychology literature. Drawing on documented examples of indigenous healing practices from Northern Plains American Indian communities, Dr. Joseph Gone explores the prospects for integrating traditional healing and contemporary psychotherapy.

The early 1990s saw a dramatic rise in the use - or misuse - of repressed memory as a psychoanalytic tool. While more and more therapists were encouraging their adult patients to revive supposedly long-buried recollections of childhood sexual abuse, a small minority of experts began to question that methodology - chief among them a cognitive psychologist named Elizabeth Loftus. This film shows how Dr. Loftus challenged the trend of memory "recovery" even as she expanded and enriched the study of human memory in contemporary psychology. Interviews with Loftus are combined with fascinating accounts of her role as an expert witness in the trial of George Thomas Franklin as well as her groundbreaking studies in imagination inflation, the uncertainty of eyewitness testimony, and the positive use of invented memory in palliative and nutritional medicine.

This program with Dr. Eric J. Green delivers an overview of play therapy from the Jungian- or analytical - perspective and instructs how to incorporate sand play with children into clinical practice. The video details the need for practitioners to develop a "safe and protected space" to allow children to individuate, becoming whole psychological individuals.

Dr. Green demonstrates two primary techniques for strengthening children’s emotional connections: modeling a symbolic attitude and executing well-timed verbal interpretations. He then discusses key terms and constructs, and illustrates microcounseling concepts directly related to Jungian play therapy.

In the first case demonstration an adolescent creates mandalas and uses expressive art therapy techniques to share her emerging personality and internal feelings. In the second demonstration, an elementary school-aged child freely creates a fairy tale through sand play, illustrating the archetypal symbols and myth that correlates to her current psychological development.

Dr. Green concludes with an analytical summary of how images and the associated feeling tones imprinted upon the psyche through sand play, symbols, mandalas, and fairy tales can harness archetypal energy created within the therapeutic dyad. Through non-judgmental support and a caring therapeutic relationship, a child’s psyche produces the symbols toward self-healing.

The therapeutic relationship has been widely regarded as important, even central, to the work of psychotherapy. However, the role of the attachment in the therapeutic process is something which is almost never discussed. Yet, when a child is referred for therapy it is common to discover that the child has experienced disruption to a significant attachment relationship which has impacted that child in serious ways. This presentation with Judith Morgan draws upon a number of actual cases, as well and shows experiential techniques in order to explore the topic.

Severe OCD can seem hopelessly intractable, especially when a client has invested significant time in past therapy. Here, anxiety disorder expert Reid Wilson employs a variation of cognitive and strategic methods in two live sessions, demonstrating his paradoxical approach to tackling obsessive thinking.

Bob, a young, fit personal trainer exhibits pervasive"repeater" behaviors that lead him to tell Wilson, "I want my mind back." Obsessed with the worry that his debilitating anxiety will remain with him until he takes corrective action, he spends much of his time repeating getting dressed or preparing for bed. Trying to avoid anything that triggers his fear of getting stuck in escalating anxiety, Bob is losing sleep, showing up late to the work he loves, and lacking the mental space he needs to build a successful life. What’s more, months of previous exposure-based therapy has barely helped him, leaving Bob without the tools to manage his daily life.

In two sessions with Bob, Wilson demonstrates the core concepts underlying his distinctive approach to treating anxiety disorders. With compassion, clarity, and aggressive analogies that leverage Bob’s courageous temperament, he passionately encourages him to rise above the content of his obsessive thoughts and practice moving towards that which he fears, supporting him in learning to tolerate uncertainty. Calling on Bob’s innate fighting spirit, he helps him "bring it on" and dramatically alter his relationship to anxiety.

If you’re looking for a fresh understanding of OCD and effective ways to treat its most unyielding aspects, you’ll find it in Wilson’s engaging, lively approach.

Working with therapeutic resistance is often discussed in psychotherapy training, but the ambivalent OCD client poses a unique challenge for clinicians. Here, anxiety expert Reid Wilson demonstrates a counterintuitive cognitive-behavioral approach to confronting safety-seeking behaviors that can help these clients maintain commitment to recovery.

Kathleen struggles with anxiety about two main issues: accidentally setting her house on fire, and getting vulnerable relatives sick from her germs. Compelled by pervasive self-doubt, she repeatedly checks to make sure her stove is turned off and washes her hands up to 30 times a day to ward off contamination. This need for absolute certainty also extends to checking her door locks and kitchen faucets, which robs her of valuable time. She tells Wilson this behavior is distressing and time-consuming, yet her belief in the persuasive content of her fears requires Wilson to skillfully manage her ambivalence.

In two live sessions with Kathleen, Wilson shows us how a pragmatic assessment, clear protocols for exposure experiments, and a thorough briefing about the insidious nature of OCD can alleviate, rather than validate, the need for reassurance that drives anxiety. With humor and clarity, he passionately encourages Kathleen to rise above the content of her obsessive thoughts and practice moving towards that which she fears, supporting her in learning to tolerate uncertainty. With practice and patience, Kathleen’s checking behavior decreases significantly.

If you’re looking for a fresh understanding of OCD and effective ways to treat its self-reinforcing nature, you’ll find it in Wilson’s engaging, lively approach.

Part leading edge medical research part utopian idealism. Three gifted psychiatrists, in communication with an extraordinarily powerful hallucinogen, resulted in one of the most fascinating and controversial periods in Canadian history.

In the ’60s, professors Humphry Osmond, Abram Hoffer and Duncan Blewett used LSD therapy on both themselves and their patients to produce groundbreaking research and discoveries into the nature of mental illness and addiction before the drug was criminalized in 1969.

Before LSD burst on the scene as fuel for wild psychedelic trips, it had an amazing, yet little known history. A surprising part of that history was written in a remote corner of the Canadian Prairies. Over a span of fifteen years, from when the drug was first administered in 1952 until it was banned and made illegal in 1967, the use of LSD ranged from leading edge psychiatric research into schizophrenia and alcoholism to volunteer testing on the general public.

As word of LSD’s amazing properties began to seep out of the laboratory, artists and intellectuals such as writer Aldous Huxley, filmmaker Paul Saltzman, architect Kyo Izumi and painter Ted Godwin began to experiment and travel to Saskatchewan to have their first experiences with LSD. THE PSYCHEDELIC PIONEERS takes us through these fascinating and controversial times through the eyes of the three lead doctors involved in the LSD Saskatchewan project.

In any counseling or psychology program, classes in theory are arguably some of the most important and relevant courses of study. Lessons in theoretical insight provide the foundation needed to understand the dynamics of human behavior and choose the therapeutic approach most appropriate to specific clients and situations.

Counseling and psychology theories are often grouped into five key approaches, known as the "Five Forces": Psychoanalytic, Cognitive-Behavioral, Existential-Humanistic, Multicultural, and Social Justice. This video collection helps effectively link theory to practice by offering demonstrations that deconstruct these key theories.

Each of the films in this series includes an interview with leading therapists in the field, followed by a demonstrative counseling session and a debriefing session.

Included videos:
The Five Forces of Counseling: First Force, Psychoanalytic
The Five Forces of Counseling: Second Force, Cognitive-Behavioral
The Five Forces of Counseling: Third Force, Existential-Humanistic
The Five Forces of Counseling: Fourth Force, Multicultural
The Five Forces of Counseling: Fifth Force, Social Justice.

Enjoy this rare opportunity to watch a true pioneer in action. Marsha Linehan is the creator of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and is best known for her success with suicidal and highly complex clients. The amount of evidence-based research surrounding DBT is tremendous; not only in its application with Borderline Personality Disorder, but also with many other hard-to-treat conditions.

In this video, watch Linehan demonstrate her approach with an extremely challenging client who manifests significant Axis II issues. This middle-aged man, brilliantly portrayed by Dutch actor Henk Grashuis, is struggling with depression, suicidal ideation, anger, and a sense that he has been treated unfairly by his ex-girlfriend - all of which is hidden behind a brittle defensiveness. You’ll see Linehan conducting an initial behavioral assessment, interspersed with DBT techniques, including her use of dialectics, irreverence, "validating the valid", and an emphasis on client choice. While the client works to keep his worst behaviors hidden from Linehan, and is reluctant to commit to any treatment, Linehan carefully, cleverly, and matter-of-factly garners necessary information about him, assesses his suicidality and history of domestic violence, helps him define and commit to his goals, and builds an appropriate initial alliance. You’ll be impressed by how much she accomplishes in a single session!

Stepfamilies and first families have markedly different dynamics and developmental cycles, and clinicians too often approach stepfamily work with insufficient understanding of these differences.

Scott Browning's stepfamily therapy model differs from standard practice in its emphasis on stabilizing each family subsystem before moving on to more integrative work with the whole stepfamily. This model holds that stepfamilies are especially aided by comprehending the systemic dynamics that influence them, and that this understanding mitigates frustration with differences in personality style and leads to recognizing the importance of every family member's role. Specific interventions used by the therapist normalize the experiences of family members, which helps to shift perceptions and clarify intentions.

In this demonstration, Dr. Browning helps a stepfamily to normalize their experience, increase empathy among stepfamily members, identify mistaken beliefs and misperceptions that cause tension, and uncover techniques to avert issues that create impasses.

In this DVD, Clara E. Hill PhD demonstrates her three-stage model for working with dreams, where she works with the client to explore the dream in detail, find insights by expanding on initial interpretations of the dream, and consolidate those insights and take action to address issues in her waking life.

The first stage, exploration, is informed by client-centered theory and involves enlarging key images of the dream to enhance their vividness and help the client experience them again with emotion and depth. In the second stage, insight, client and therapist take what they've learned from the exploration process and conceptualize what the dream means to the client's present life. The third stage of action allows the client to apply her understanding of the dream and determine what waking changes should be made based on newfound knowledge from the dream.

In this session, Dr. Hill and the client discuss at length a dream that the client has had recurrently since she was 18 years old. Recurring dreams often represent recurring themes in people's lives, and the client considers the powerful notion that if she can gain insight into her dream, she could perhaps change her life.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is an effective and appropriate approach for late-life depression because it is problem focused, examining and treating present-day problems that negatively impact the client's quality of life. Established empirical studies support the use of standard CBT with older clients, and subsequent research has reinforced CBT's effectiveness when tailored to fit the needs of this prominent population.

In this video, Dr. Dolores Gallagher-Thompson works with an older woman with depression, demonstrating the technical assets of CBT while skillfully building an effective therapeutic relationship with the client.

Accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy (AEDP) is both a theory of transformational process and a model of psychotherapy with three fundamental elements: Attachment; Emotion Processing; and, Transformation.

Emphasizing the regulation and processing of relatedness and emotion, AEDP integrates psychodynamic and relational elements within an affect-centered experiential framework. This approach is effective with male clients because it avoids pathologizing problems, and instead affirms strengths and reflects positive qualities to offset commonly negative expectations of treatment.

In this phase-oriented treatment, Dr. Diana Fosha first focuses on building the relationship and establishing safety, simultaneously working with anxiety and attending to interferences with core emotion. She then helps the client to gain visceral access to experience, using moment-to-moment tracking of fluctuations in affect. Next, Dr. Fosha affirms and processes the experience of transformation by drawing attention to its positive and healing effects. Finally, the client is able to construct a coherent, cohesive narrative, with newfound personal truth and strengthened sense of self.

Over the last century scientists have devised many ingenious methods to unlock the secrets of the mind. In this three-part series, host Michael Mosley investigates some of these groundbreaking experiments, now considered classics in the field of psychology. Delving into CIA thought control projects, tests on children, and brain surgery blunders, this three-program series traces the history of experimental psychology from its dubious beginnings through to the profound new understanding it has yielded of emotions, free will, and the mind itself. A BBC Production

INTO THE MIND: EMOTIONS
Where do emotions come from, and why do we experience them? Is there a connection between reason and emotion? In this program, host Michael Mosley uses vintage footage and his own willingness to be a test subject to review classic and sometimes disturbing experiments on the nature of fear, love, and empathy. The discussion includes John B. Watson’s tests on 9-month-old "Little Albert", in which the infant was conditioned to feel fear; António Damásio’s findings on gambling, logic, and decision making; and the work that Harry Harlow did with monkeys and their surrogate mothers that helped change thinking about the value of cuddling a newborn baby.
49 minutes

INTO THE MIND: MIND CONTROL
In this program, host Michael Mosley provides an illustrated history of some of the most notorious psychology experiments ever conducted in science’s attempt to explore behavior, brainwashing, and free will. The survey includes Ivan Pavlov, his famous dogs, and his less-famous test trials on children; the CIA’s MK-ULTRA project, in which LSD was given to unsuspecting test subjects; and Robert Heath’s experimental psychosurgery on African-American subjects. Mosley also talks with B. F. Skinner’s daughter; a man who participated in Stanley Milgram’s obedience experiments; and a survivor of William Sargant’s electroshock therapy. Under the guidance of controversial psychiatrist David Nutt, Mosley even ingests psilocybin to explore its potential in treating mental illness. 49 minutes

INTO THE MIND: BROKEN BRAINS
Head injury, epilepsy, experimental surgery gone wrong - in this program, host Michael Mosley provides evidence that these medical misfortunes have helped break new ground in understanding how healthy brains work. Examples include HM, the victim of a botched lobotomy that left him unable to form new memories, but whose subsequent participation in studies significantly advanced knowledge of human memory; Paul Broca’s identification of a speech production area in the frontal lobes, illustrated by a visit to the Musée Dupuytren, where the brains of his patients are still preserved; and the case of a split-brain operation that cured epilepsy, but with an unforeseen result: the patient’s left hand seemed to have a mind of its own. 52 minutes

Drs. Robert D. Enright and Richard P. Fitzgibbons discuss and demonstrate their forgiveness-centered approach to psychotherapy. Forgiveness is the process of uncovering and letting go of anger at someone who has caused the client pain. This can be the path to healing in many situations, as anger is frequently at the core of a client's issues and may be the center of many disorders.

In this session, Dr. Fitzgibbons works with Deanne, a young woman who is divorced with an 8-year-old son. Deanne is angry with her ex-husband because she feels he has never supported her or their son, and he continues to betray them with false promises. She also fears that her anger might drive away her current boyfriend. Dr. Fitzgibbons helps Deanne to uncover more of her anger and to begin the difficult task of letting it go.

Dr. Lorne Korman demonstrates his approach to treating clients who present with problems of anger and aggression. This integrative approach to anger treatment recognizes that the underlying causes of anger and aggression problems vary by individual. An important aspect of treatment involves assessing the underlying emotional, behavioral, cognitive, and motivational processes that may be contributing to a client's anger problems. Therapy often involves teaching clients about anger and personal anger cues, and enhancing the client's motivation to reduce anger.

In this session, Dr. Korman works with a man in his 30s with anger and aggression issues surrounding road rage. He first educates the client about anger, then provides strategies for monitoring his feelings and reducing angry behavior.

Joy, sadness, fear, anger - sometimes they hide behind a calm, sociable façade. In other cases, the more we try to conceal them, the more visible they become. This four-part series illuminates connections between the physical and psychological aspects of human behavior. Viewers will gain an understanding of the importance of body language, facial expression, and tone of voice, in relation to key concepts such as empathy, aggression, and territorial instinct. Hosted by noted psychologist John Marsden, each program explores, through humorous, poignant, and sometimes frightening examples, the interrelationship of human emotion and action.

There are four 56-minute programs in the series:

LIARS
It’s been estimated that there are over 100 different types of lie - some good, some bad, some pure evil. Although lying is universal, it may be the most poorly understood of all human traits. In this program, psychologist John Marsden attempts to unravel the mysteries surrounding deception and identify its cues in body language and facial expression. Dr. Marsden interviews Donald Bickerstaff, a man who swindled millions from investment clients and who displays little remorse for his dishonesty. Dr. Marsden also meets Beth Shannon, a portrait artist with an uncanny ability to spot falsehoods, and confronts that most merciless of lie detectors, the polygraph machine.

HEARTBREAK
It can lead to isolation, to depression, even to violence. In this program, psychologist John Marsden investigates the devastating effect that social and romantic rejection can have on the brain, the body, and human behavior. Using the latest neuro-imaging technology, Dr. Marsden examines the links between unrequited love and physical pain; he also sheds light on why crimes of passion and revenge occur, and explains how early childhood experiences of rejection can shape adult relationships. Examples of romantic failure and social isolation are analyzed through their physical manifestations - although these are shown to vary according to gender.

PERSUADERS
Is there a way to cut in line without creating hard feelings? Why are peer groups such a strong influence on individuals? What is the secret to swaying the undecided and winning over the skeptical? In this program, psychologist John Marsden illustrates how experts in the art of persuasion think and operate, and how their goals can become transparent. Dr. Marsden talks with salespeople, marketing gurus, and business owners - as well as a hypnotist who can pull teeth without anesthetics and a former cult member who has firsthand experience in being psychologically controlled. From overt dominance to discreet manipulation, the multifaceted world of persuasion is revealed.

URBAN SURVIVAL
Are humans genetically disposed to live in large, dense group - or are we actually unfit as a species to do so? In this program, psychologist John Marsden dissects the behavior of city dwellers, analyzing why some people are capable of living shoulder-to-shoulder with thousands or even millions of their fellow humans - while others clearly are not. Dr. Marsden inquires into the dangers of city life, the complex nature of urban etiquette, and - through experiments on unwitting test subjects - the visible effects of sensory overload and urban anonymity. He even gets wired up himself, joining a riot-control simulation to measure his own stress levels.

Integrative Therapy involves selecting models and methods from across orientations to best suit a particular client and context. Meta-analyses demonstrate that tailoring therapy to the individual client enhances treatment effectiveness.

John C. Norcross's approach to integrative psychotherapy systematically matches evidence-based treatment methods and healing relationships to the client on the basis of multiple transdiagnostic features, including stage of change, reactance level, culture, and preferences.

In this video, Dr. Norcross works with a young man named Jason who seeks to improve both his self-care regimen and interpersonal relationships. Dr. Norcross assesses Jason's stages of change and preferences in these areas, addresses his multiple treatment goals, and applies different relationship stances to help move him forward.

Short-term dynamic psychotherapy applies psychoanalytic principles to define and understand the dynamics and problems that clients bring to the therapy session. The aim of this approach is to uncover the feelings or thoughts that interfere with a client's relationships, communication, and daily functioning.

To be effective, the therapist must work quickly to engage the client in the therapeutic process, uncovering defenses and gaining the trust of the client in a brief time. As the therapist forms an alliance that allows honest communication, both parties explore any relevant historical and current events that may prevent healthy functioning.

In this video, Donald K. Freedheim works with a single parent who initially presents with concerns and anxieties about her daughter's well-being. As the demonstration unfolds, Dr. Freedheim deftly shifts the focus back to the client herself and uncovers the client's key issue - her unexpressed anger - and explores how that anger has interfered with the development of healthy relationships.

We’d be hard-pressed to find a therapist today who hasn’t in some way been shaped by Dr. Aaron Beck. The founder of Cognitive Therapy, and "one of the five most influential psychotherapists of all time" according to The American Psychologist, Beck revolutionized the way millions of clinicians approach clients in distress. Here is a chance to hear directly from one of the most innovative thinkers in our field.

In this engaging interview, Beck discusses his process of developing cognitive therapy - from his early days as a psychoanalyst, through his disillusionment with psychoanalysis and creation of a therapeutic model that reflected his research and actual experiences with clients. He shares his insights about depression, from its evolutionary origins and how our thinking sustains it, to how best to treat it. Addressing his thoughts on why other models of therapy persist enthusiastically despite the proven success of cognitive therapy, Beck also offers his opinions on integrative models of psychotherapy and his concerns about therapists jumping from one approach to another.

Considered by many to be the founder of cognitive behavioral therapy and one of the most influential psychologists of all time, Albert Ellis, founder of REBT, is nothing if not controversial. In two separate interviews with Drs. Arthur Freeman and Myrtle Heery we meet Ellis face-to-face, providing viewers with insight into the core principles of REBT, as well as the passionate and irreverent man behind this popular, confrontational approach to change.

With his characteristic style that some have called audacious and even obnoxious, Ellis unabashedly shares his convictions on everything from how "woefully ineffective" psychoanalysis is, to how most therapists placate their clients out of their own "dire need to be loved," to how self-esteem is "the greatest sickness known to man." He describes how he overcame fear and shame by forcing himself to give public talks and approach women for dates, and discusses his evolution from psychoanalyst to renegade innovator of his own approach, influenced largely by his studies in philosophy, general semantics, and his unwavering belief in the liberating power of unconditional self-acceptance.

Stopping obsessional thinking patterns is one of the most vexing challenges people deal with, and most therapists are equally mystified about how to really help their clients free themselves from the torture of fearful thoughts. Here, notable anxiety disorder expert Reid Wilson employs a variation of cognitive-behavioral and strategic methods in two live sessions, demonstrating his unique approach to tackling obsessive thinking.

Rita, a middle-aged mother, is plagued with anxiety about her health. Obsessed with what might be wrong with her, she spends much of her time seeking reassurance that she’s okay, from repeated internet searches to excessive doctors’ visits. Trying to avoid anything that triggers her fear of having a heart attack, Rita is missing out on living the active lifestyle she longs to live and barely enjoys time with her family and friends.

In two sessions with Rita, Wilson demonstrates the core concepts underlying his paradoxical approach to treating anxiety disorders. With humor, compassion, and clarity, he passionately encourages Rita to rise above the content of her obsessive thoughts and practice moving towards that which she fears, supporting her in learning to tolerate uncertainty. Calling on her courage, he helps her to dramatically alter her relationship to the anxiety.

Decades of research have shown that exposure therapy is by far the most effective way to get long-lasting results in the treatment of specific phobias, but most therapists have never had a chance to see exposure therapy in action, let alone be trained in it. Here, prominent anxiety expert Reid Wilson shows you how it’s done, as he conducts two remarkable sessions with a woman suffering from claustrophobia.

Mary loves to travel, but dreads airplanes. In fact, any enclosed space where she feels trapped triggers her fear of suffocation, so she spends much of her time avoiding parking structures, elevators, and coping with panic attacks when avoidance is impossible. With conviction and humor, Wilson engages Mary in two transformational sessions, based on the paradoxical principle that moving towards that which she fears holds the key to her freedom.

Wilson leads Mary through several experiments which give her the opportunity to face her fears of both suffocation and restriction. From breathing with a nose plug on, to sliding a pillow case over her head and sealing it with packing tape, and finally to climbing into a large cardboard box, Mary courageously confronts layers of terror, gradually shifting her point of view from "I can’t handle this" to "I want this fear and I can handle it". With Wilson’s constant support and encouragement, Mary makes an incredible amount of progress in only two sessions, demonstrating how powerful these tools really are.

Drs. Tilsen and Nylund illustrate the clinical application of queer theory. Queer theory, a set of ideas that challenge notions of fixed gender identity categories, can be useful in helping clients unpack taken-for-granted ideas about sex and gender. Dr. Nylund uses a queer theory-informed practice to aid Zach, 17, and his mother Gina, to recount and bear witness to his journey of self-acceptance and bravery as a gay young man.

Dave Nylund joins Julie and Tighearnan with reflections on homophobic bullying in school. This harassment has exceedingly harmful effects on identity along with jeopardizing personal safety. After five years of counseling support Zach and his mother meet with Dave to share his personal triumphs and poise in the face of heterosexism at a mainstream highschool. Gina's support of Zach while he has faced such oppression serves as an inspirational model for parents of queer-identified youth.

These classic, "must-have" psychology films produced by social psychologist Stanley Milgram provide the important visual imagery essential for truly understanding the foundations of Social Psychology. This set includes all six of Milgram's films, featuring his research in the field of social psychology. Included are Obedience - considered one of the most famous experimental studies in psychology of all time - in addition to The City and the Self, Conformity and Independence, Human Aggression, Invitation to Social Psychology, and Nonverbal Communication. Three hours and 11 minutes in total.

"The social psychology of this century reveals a major lesson: often it is not so much the kind of person a man is as the kind of situation in which he finds himself that determines how he will act." Stanley Milgram

Stanley Milgram became a controversial and compelling public figure as a result of his shocking 1962 experiment, Obedience to Authority, which revealed the extraordinary actions average people will take to follow orders. When published, the world was reeling as new information about the Holocaust came to light though the Eichmann trials. The film OBEDIENCE, which documented the experiment and provided visual evidence of the results, began Milgram’s interest in film as an educational tool. He went on to create five more films over the course of his career on other social psychology topics, all of which are now available on DVD and for Streaming Rights purchase.

Each of these films provides arresting visual imagery to supplement classroom instruction and discussion around a variety of essential themes, figures, and experiments in social psychology, making even complex topics accessible to a wide variety of students.

OBEDIENCE
This seminal film documents Stanley Milgram’s classic research on obedience to authority, based on candid footage shot at Yale University during and after the experiments. We witness subjects instructed to administer electric shocks of increasing severity to another person, and observe both obedient and defiant reactions. After the experiment, we witness subjects explain firsthand their actions. This is the only authentic film footage of Milgram’s famous experiment and is essential to all foundational work in social psychology at the undergraduate and high school level. 45 minutes

The program also highlights Bard’s work on the psychological training of police, Bandura’s and Walters’ Bobo Doll experiment, Milgram’s work with group influences on aggression, and the findings of Sykes and Matza on the legitimization of aggression in delinquent groups. 24 minutes

INVITATION TO SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY
By placing an emphasis on three questions - What is the subject matter of social psychology? What are its methods of investigation? What are some of its findings? - this film is able to provide an overview of the field of social psychology. The program features reenactments of Asch’s experiment on conformity, Bandura’s and Walters’ work on the social learning of aggression, Milgram’s study of obedience, and Zimbardo’s prison simulation. 25 minutes

Drawing upon the work of psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen, neuroscientists Vittorio Gallese and Simone Shamay-Tsoory, futurist Jeremy Rifkin, and numerous other experts and researchers, this documentary analyzes empathy as it explores its extraordinary relevance in today’s increasingly interconnected world.

Topics include the anthropological roots of empathy; empathy-nurturing educational programs in schools; effects of hormones on the development of empathy; the spectrum of psychopathy; "us vs. them" and "in-group/out-group" mentalities; the suppression and reawakening of empathy in strife-torn regions such as Israel, Bosnia, and Rwanda; the "bystander effect"; mirror neurons; "sensitive artificial listeners"; and social entrepreneurism in a technology-facilitated empathic civilization.

Immensely thought-provoking. An important film that is particularly applicable to the disciplines of social, biological, educational, and forensic psychology; neuroscience; social philosophy; and sociology.

There is currently an epidemic of anxiety affecting children of all ages. Differing estimates suggest that one in five to one in eight qualify for an anxiety disorder diagnosis, making this the most common diagnosis in children. Anxiety can take many forms including obsessions, compulsions, phobias, panic, as well as a host of perplexing seeking and avoidant behaviours. Various strategies are emerging on how to treat anxiety problems, but most interventions are hand-me-downs from adult treatment and are questionable in terms of their appropriateness with children.

We cannot treat something that we do not understand; making sense of anxiety is foundational to its cure. This is where Dr. Neufeld begins, putting the pieces of the anxiety puzzle together to reveal roots deep in separation alarm. Dr. Neufeld’s comprehensive model of attachment provides new meaning to the construct of separation and lays the foundation for effective treatment and cure. In mapping out the separation complex, Dr. Neufeld also reveals the relationship of anxiety to other common childhood issues including dominance, aggression and attention problems. Dr. Neufeld brings a fresh and promising perspective to one of our most troubling and perplexing human problems.

As usual with Dr. Neufeld’s courses, even though the focus is on children, the material applies to adults as well. Four one-hour sessions.

Kathleen J. Bieschke demonstrates her affirmative approach to psychotherapy, working with a young man to uncover his interpersonal concerns within the context of his gay identity.

This affirmative approach involves a strong focus on the therapeutic alliance, with the therapist serving as an advocate for the client and being mindful that gay clients have a sociopolitical reality that heterosexuals do not have to contend with. Using this developmental and culturally sensitive understanding, the therapist must also engage in meaningful self-reflection and exploration, determining how heterosexist biases might inform their work and interpersonal views.

In this session, the client presents himself in a happy-go-lucky manner but reveals feelings of inferiority and a tendency to let few people see who he really is. Dr. Bieschke fosters the client's development of assertiveness, transparency with people, and ability to advocate for himself so that he can enjoy more satisfying relationships.

Mindfulness is the central ingredient in a growing number of empirically supported treatments, and mindfulness practices hold great promise not only for personal development, but as remarkably powerful tools to augment virtually every form of psychotherapy.

In this program, Dr. Ronald D. Siegel works with a young man who presents with stress-related chronic neck pain.

First he helps the client to see that the mind plays a critical role in his presenting problem. Next, using the therapeutic understanding that resistance to mental and physical discomfort exacerbates suffering, Dr. Siegel works to identify the physical sensations and emotions that the client is struggling to avoid.

Through practicing acceptance of pain sensations, anxiety, and other emotions, the client is able to become more comfortable with these experiences as they arise, placing him on a path toward freedom from his disorder.

What if we could simply erase bad memories from our minds at the push of a button? That isn’t necessarily science fiction, as this film demonstrates by looking at research happening around the world. Studies at the European Neuroscience Institute have revealed an enzyme responsible for storing fear in our long-term memory archives. In Canada, a simple medication is being used to liberate people from traumatic memories. And an entirely different approach is being taken in Munich - trauma therapy through simple eye exercises, known as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, or EMDR. Will neuroscientists succeed in finding the brain’s delete key? Do these experiments represent a glimmer of hope for traumatized people or a dangerous path for society as a whole?

In trying to HELP someone change, many counselors know that taking the expert role and just telling the client what to do often doesn’t work, and usually leaves them, the counselor, feeling frustrated. Bill Miller, the founder of Motivational Interviewing, developed an alternative that might be obvious to some and radical to others: honor the person’s autonomy, draw forth the inherent desire to change, and take a collaborative - rather than confrontational - approach.

In this compelling interview, Miller elucidates how people change and how we, as clinicians, can effectively facilitate the process. He discusses the evolution of Motivational Interviewing, the spirit of MI, and specific techniques that clinicians can begin applying immediately. Miller addresses how to deal with clients’ resistance and denial, particularly when the clinician feels impatient and frustrated, and talks about ways to build clients’ confidence to enhance motivation.

If you’re looking for a respectful, compassionate, evidence-based tool to incorporate into your repertoire, and are ready to really make a difference in your clients’ lives, it’s time to begin using Motivational Interviewing. Get started here by learning directly from the creator himself, and join countless others who have used this approach with great success in diverse fields, including addiction counseling, criminal justice, and health care.

By watching this video, you will be able to:
* Describe the Motivational Interviewing approach to change, including the spirit of Motivational Interviewing and specific techniques used to help people change.
* Identify when Motivational Interviewing is and is not recommended.
* Explain how a clinician employing Motivational Interviewing techniques would respond to resistance.

Dr. Bertha G. Holliday, Ph.D. discusses the intersections of race/ethnicity, diversity and social justice, and includes an overview of psychology’s social justice efforts. Assessment of the impact of these and similar efforts suggests that future such efforts might be guided less by legal concepts/remedies (e.g., equal opportunity, equity) and more by principles of diversity (e.g., empowerment, inclusiveness, systems behavioral change) that are more responsive to issues of privilege, power, and context. Diversity is defined relative to its similarities with and differences from other related concepts. Major elements and intended outcomes of diversity are identified and critical types of diversity efforts and challenges described. It is noted that diversity can be a major tool for reducing both violence to individuals and organizations, and risks of community/organization implosion.

"Re-membering conversations" (the hyphen signals the deliberate reproduction of membership), can be useful in counseling someone who is grieving but can also be used to regenerate the thoughts of the contributions made by those who are no longer living. Such contributions are resources for identity growth and for problem solving. In this moving counseling session with John Winslade and Lorraine Hedtke, the client recalls the importance her mother played in her life and the many ways in which her mother’s legacy continues to be a vibrant part of who she is. Her mother is "brought to life" through the rich stories told in the counseling conversation, even though she died many years previously.

In this two-part series, Dr. John Winslade and Dr. Lorraine Hedtke demonstrate aspects of counseling conversations, so that students can learn and improve their counseling skills.

Part I: Developing Curiosity:
In three engaging vignettes, the authors start each conversation with a simple word - "breakfast", -"favorite pet", and "something you were pleased about". Viewers will be fascinated with how these seemingly simple acts of curiosity build a generative conversation that connects with a person’s cherished identity story. All give way to a rich conversation about identity stories and about preferred ways of living.

Part II: Externalizing and Decision-Making
Externalizing, an essential component to Narrative Therapy, is founded on the belief that "the person is not the problem; the problem is the problem". In the externalizing conversation, Donna struggles with tardiness. In the decision-making conversation, Lorena wants to make a decision about whether to choose her girlfriend over her loving yet disapproving mother and family.

How does PTSD look from the inside, and how is it treated? In this unique training video, we find out firsthand from Terry, a Vietnam vet who witnessed his friend’s brutal death in combat. We then follow his post-combat life: the struggle of living with PTSD for 40 years, and finally getting his life back with the help of renowned PTSD expert Dr. Frank Ochberg.

Through revealing personal interviews, commentary, and actual therapy sessions between Terry and Dr. Ochberg, this comprehensive video documents Terry’s two-year-long therapeutic process of healing from chronic PTSD. Terry’s courage in sharing the intimate details of his thoughts, feelings, and behaviors through his struggle brings a rare depth and insight to Ochberg’s step-by-step explanations and demonstrations of PTSD-specific techniques and strategies.

Trauma has become an ever more common life experience, and knowing how to treat someone with PTSD should be a part of every therapist’s repertoire. This video offers a unique window into both the great suffering that PTSD can create in our clients, and the journey toward reclaiming the richness and meaning in their lives.

While counseling programs train their students to enter the world of counseling, sometimes these beginning counselors find themselves in difficult and uncomfortable situations. This video addresses some of those challenging moments in session, where a counselor has to think quickly and respond appropriately.

The vignettes address the following issues:
1.The client who wants the counselor to make all decisions for her.
2.The client who picks up his phone in the middle of session.
3. The client who makes unintentional racist/homophobic/sexist remarks in session.
4. The client who nervously talks non-stop, without giving the counselor a chance to interject.
5. The client with inappropriate space boundaries.
6. The mandated client who won’t talk in a session.
For each vignette shown, there are multiple responses offered, allowing the viewer to decide which one might work best.
This is a must-have training video for the new counselor - and can even offer helpful advice for the experienced counselor!

How do mental health professionals work toward multicultural competence? One place to start is to begin the process of self-awareness, particularly in the area of socially privileged identities. In this ground-breaking series, Lew Schlosser interviews psychologists with expertise in six key areas of privilege: White, Heterosexual, Christian, Ability, Male and Social Class. In addition to learning how to personally connect with one's own socially privileged identities, students and professionals of all ethnicities and races will learn how privilege manifests itself in everyday life, how it affects the therapeutic process, and how we can take steps to dismantle privilege. Thought-provoking and insightful, this DVD is sure to spark discussion and even debate in class. This DVD brings the power of often missed multicultural issues to the center of our practice.

Social justice is an exercise in empowerment and wellness for individuals, groups, and communities, but counselors and therapists have been trained to work in an individualistic framework and give insufficient attention to community action. The values of a caring collective community lead the practitioner into a broader theoretical worldview.

Combining Gestalt and expressive arts therapies, Oaklander has been training therapists from around the world in her unique approach for several decades.

With a warm and supportive presence, Oaklander offers guidance to three therapists, each struggling with difficult cases. From an 11-year-old boy who was expelled from school soon after his parents separated, to a 6-year-old girl who has been shuffled around to five foster homes in three years, to a boy entering puberty who was molested when he was four, Oaklander shares her wisdom and expertise on child development, trauma, and the nuts and bolts of exploring children’s inner worlds. Additionally, she offers detailed advice about engaging with parents and building a child’s sense of self.

Sprinkling in Gestalt themes such as the importance of contact and following the aliveness, Oaklander also demonstrates the specifics of using art therapy techniques to explore each child’s emotional landscape. By sitting in on this consultation session, you will receive a wealth of concrete, practical strategies, and walk away feeling more confident in your ability to bring child therapy to life.

In this in-depth interview, you’ll get to know Polster’s unique take on Gestalt therapy, and see for yourself how he boldly elevates ordinary conversations into life-affirming encounters.

In the psychotherapy profession, there are many experts, but few true masters, and Erving Polster is certainly one of the latter. Weaving together stories from his formative experiences with Fritz and Laura Perls, and significant lessons from his five decades as a psychotherapist, Polster offers in this interview timeless wisdom for new and seasoned therapists alike.

Join Polster in this intimate conversation as he explores fundamental Gestalt principles such as the paradoxical theory of change and the importance of the therapeutic relationship, while learning the pitfalls of being a new therapist, such as the dangers of imitating the masters. Enjoy the spontaneous role-play, which highlights Polster’s exceptional skill in bringing freshness and aliveness to a session with a highly self-critical client.

With surprising revelations such as, "I don’t concentrate on the here and now", "I’m not interested in changing anything", and, "I am there to create conflicts", viewers will gain insight into the nuanced perspective of a brilliant, innovative, and free-thinking therapist, while getting a clear understanding of the essence of Gestalt therapy. Most importantly, you’ll get a sense of Erv Polster, the person - fully vital in his eighties - and how he brings his full self into his therapeutic work.

Patient expression of anger toward the psychotherapist is a stressful and prevalent phenomenon in the course of psychological treatment. Responding skilfully to a client's anger constitutes a major technical and interpersonal hurdle for psychotherapists, and explicit training in this area is rare. This program is designed to help fill this gap by presenting selected scenes of distinguished psychologists facing client expressions of anger. (Anger is used in the general and descriptive meaning of a strong feeling of displeasure and usually of antagonism.)

Designed for clinical training, this video is appropriate for workshops or individual study for the professional development of practicing clinical psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers, counselors, and graduate psychology students.

This video features clients portrayed by actors on the basis of actual case material. The therapists were not briefed in advance on the nature of the scenario being acted out, and therefore their responses are spontaneous and unrehearsed.

In this program, three leading therapists demonstrate three different therapeutic orientations with a single client.

Inspired by the original "Three Approaches to Psychotherapy" video, which featured three pioneering therapists working with client "Gloria," this DVD revisits the original program concept with presentations of cognitive therapy with Judith S. Beck, emotion-focused therapy with Leslie S. Greenberg, and psychodynamic therapy with Nancy McWilliams. Beck, Greenberg, and McWilliams define and illustrate their individual approaches, engage in a roundtable discussion about their work, and provide voiceover commentary for their respective sessions.

This spirited presentation demonstrates the shared features and key differences of contemporary therapeutic approaches, allowing the viewer a chance to compare and contrast the techniques and qualities of three master psychotherapists.

*Featuring Sue Johnson
Dr. Sue Johnson has been hailed as "the most original contributor to couples therapy to come along in the last 30 years." Now you'll have the chance to watch her conduct an actual session with a challenging couple haunted by the "echoes of war".

Matt and Rhea are dispirited from their frequent fights, and their couples therapist is struggling to contain their heated conflict and help them reconnect with positive feelings. After serving in Iraq as a helicopter pilot, Matt has returned with a PTSD diagnosis and finds himself shutting down emotionally, leaving Rhea feeling hurt, abandoned, and more like an employee than a partner. But her desperate longing to be seen and appreciated comes out as escalating anger, leaving Matt feeling overwhelmed and wanting to withdraw further.

Johnson first consults with Matt and Rhea's couples therapist, aided by video clips from prior sessions. Then you'll see Johnson work with this couple in a brilliant demonstration of the subtlety and efficacy of EFT. In a single session, she helps them conceptualize their conflicts in attachment terms, gain an understanding of their negative cycle, and begin to reveal some of the vulnerable feelings that underlie their explosive anger. Commentary before, during, and after the consultation and session provides insight into her approach.

Especially with clients who have difficulty expressing themselves verbally, art and drama therapy techniques offer exciting ways for therapists to make contact, connect, and begin a meaningful therapeutic dialogue.

See how these simple yet profound techniques support clients in uncovering unexpected parts of themselves as they process traumas, explore their fears, and tap into strengths they didn't know they had. From puppets to pastels, sand play to scribble drawings, you will see a myriad of creative methods masterfully demonstrated and learn how to begin implementing these transformative practices immediately.

By watching this video, you will:

Effective therapy with criminals has the power to significantly reduce violence in our communities, yet forensic populations can be volatile and especially intimidating to work with. These videos provide deep insights into one of society's most intractable issues, and in opposition to the punitive approach to violence prevention, make a compelling case for treating violent offenders with human dignity and responding to violence with psychological treatment and education. It will likewise challenge the viewer to see the humanity within violent individuals and inspire new ways to think about how to reduce violence in our communities. Two 59-minute programs:

THE ROOTS OF VIOLENCE
In this program ten experts elucidate the root causes of violent behavior. They offer a probing look into the unsettling childhood experiences of violent offenders, examining the disturbed parent-child attachment styles, destructive thought processes, and distorted social perceptions that underlie violence. In addition to the expert commentary, riveting interviews with both incarcerated and rehabilitated offenders offer direct insight into the thinking that led to violent crimes.

EFFECTIVE TREATMENT OF VIOLENT INDIVIDUALS
Part Two examines the critical components of effective treatment programs for violent individuals by focusing on prison programs in California and the U.K. Beyond the creation of an environment of safety and respect, these therapists confront the patriarchal beliefs, social misperceptions, and destructive thoughts that precipitate violent responses to real or perceived threats.

Vignettes of actual therapy sessions, along with interviews with incarcerated men, display the remarkable insight these individuals can achieve through treatment. Their chilling accounts of violence will challenge the empathy of even seasoned therapists, yet many of their stories are ultimately redemptive, as they learn to make use of their violent pasts by working to prevent violence in their communities. This video demonstrates vividly that conventional assumptions about crime and punishment fail to endure close scrutiny.

Challenging the predominant view that manualized treatment methods are the gold standard for effective psychotherapy, Norcross shares empirical research that leads him to argue for a "middle path" that says it is both the treatment method and the therapeutic relationship that make the difference.

Norcross discusses the scientific evidence that the relationship between therapist and patient accounts for success more than we may have realized. From how to cultivate the "person of the therapist", to the importance of prizing the patient's perspective, Norcross answers the timeless question: What makes for a great therapist?

Watch Stephen Madigan, expert Narrative therapist, as he compassionately engages Ollie and his mother in a fascinating inquiry into their experience of racism, discovering there's much more to this incident than meets the eye.

By asking a series of purposeful questions intended to help Ollie and his mother "tell their story", Madigan masterfully shows how to uncover the client's stance on the problem and how to develop an alternative plot that supports a client's preferred identity.

With persistence and openness, Madigan validates this family's experience of racism and helps Ollie regain his "good boy reputation". This is an exceptional opportunity to engage with the compelling principles of Narrative Therapy and learn how to put these transformational ideas into practice.

The family is in a real crisis: Nineteen-year-old Erica was recently arrested and jailed for smashing her boyfriend's car window with a baseball bat, and her mother is understandably very concerned. Hardy creates a nonjudgmental space for both mother and daughter to tell their stories, while acknowledging the complexity of the situation by bringing the broader social context into the therapy room.

Always looking for the "pearls of functionality", this session is a beautiful example of how Hardy weaves together seemingly disparate views and facilitates a deeper intimacy between mother and daughter. The discussions before and after the session provide insight into Hardy's distinctive style as he illuminates the key features of an Integrative approach, particularly how all behavior is best understood when considered within the context in which it is embedded.

Dr. Pittman is one of the most passionate therapists around when it comes to helping people take responsibility for their lives, as you'll see in this live couples therapy session.

Concluding with a lively discussion with an audience of therapists, Pittman shares what he has learned over his forty years working with couples and families in every imaginable crisis.

This multi-award-winning collection of eight three-to-six-minute micro-documentaries attempts to communicate the subjective experience of abnormal psychological states by blending edgy animation with narration by people who live each day with debilitating mental conditions. Impressionistic, abstract, and even surreal, these dark cinematic gems are designed to help eliminate misconceptions about mental illness by promoting viewer empathy. Compelling; insightful; honest.

*Micro-documentaries include:

DIMENSIONS (Schizophrenia)
Voices - sometimes benign, sometimes malevolent. Disordered thought and flights of fancy. Delusions both pleasant and unpleasant. Paranoia. This animated short film focuses on what it is to experience schizophrenia. "I was living outside consensus reality," says Chas. "The first voices I started hearing a lot of was my family.... Later on they were very persecutory. That wasn’t pleasant, and it wasn’t something I wanted to continue. I mean, the voices were very distressing, the impression is they were encouraging me to self-harm or commit suicide. They were getting pretty nasty."

THE LIGHTBULB THING (Bipolar Disorder)
This animated short film charts the emotional trajectory of Hannah, a college student who, after becoming more and more manic, falls without warning into a dark place without meaning, an inner world of depression where every day seems the same. "You wake up in the morning and you think, ‘God, not this day again!’ It feels like you have done it already." With the memory of euphoria fading from her mind, Hannah is left empty and despairing as the brightness within her - "the lightbulb thing" - goes out.

FISH ON A HOOK (Agoraphobia and Panic Attacks)
Mike has panic attacks associated with agoraphobia. He characterizes his condition as being like a fish wriggling on the end of a hook, and in this animated short film he describes what it’s like to deal with anxiety so debilitating that even a journey to the supermarket can be terrifying. "My heart beats louder and louder. As I walk," he says, "I feel my body is like jelly and I’m not at all sure-footed. I mean, I’m scared I might fall over. I’m now a prisoner who has moved out into a very hostile area."

OBSESSIVELY COMPULSIVE (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder)
Could fleeting thoughts of Saddam Hussein cause an escalation of the Gulf War and plunge humankind into World War III? Steve honestly believed so, and this animated short film illustrates the rituals he performed to undo any harm his thoughts may have caused. "Ordinary day-to-day simple tasks" had to do in the absence of an intrusive thought," says Steve. "If I couldn’t do that, I had to repeat the behavior over and over again." Walking, reading, eating, drinking, even breathing - all had to be done without the imaginary taint of Saddam Hussein.

BECOMING INVISIBLE (Eating Disorders)
Feelings of utter aloneness. Violent nightmares for years on end. Suicidal wishes. And a carefully crafted mask to hide it all behind. Going beyond acts of binging and purging and food intake restriction, this animated short film explores the inner reality of eating disorders. "I did want to reduce myself in size, but it wasn’t to fit my clothes, it wasn’t to look good," says Nicole. "It was to disappear. It was to take up less space in the world" I wanted to become invisible."

OVER AND OVER (AND OVER) AGAIN (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder)
After checking every electrical outlet, every light switch, every window latch, every faucet in the house, Danny would be almost done with his daily morning routine. "And then I’d leave [for school] and I’d have to stand there for about - it could last about two hours - just checking the door." In this animated short film, Danny describes a life ruled by safety-related rituals and the number eight. "But there was another part of me, in my head, there was the normal me. I used to argue with myself, be like, ‘just stop!’ Sometimes you just can’t."

AN ALIEN IN THE PLAYGROUND (Asperger’s Syndrome)
Joshua has Asperger’s syndrome - a condition that makes him seem like an alien to his peers. "I think when I started primary school, I think then is when I first noticed that I was really different from everyone else," he says in this animated short film. Joshua’s inability to read the faces and body language of others, and the torments associated with that inability, were unceasing: "I was having nightmares night after night about school and about being bullied, and the sad thing is that what was happening in my nightmares was what was going on in real life, so I couldn’t even have any escape in my dreams."

MY BLOOD IS MY TEARS (Self-Harm)
Abbie, Louise, and Nicole have burned themselves with heated metal and cigarettes, stabbed needles into their skin, punched walls, slammed doors on their arms, and thrown themselves down staircases. This animated short film examines self-harm: the impulses that prompt it and the temporary relief from emotional pain that physical pain seemingly provides."People cry; I can’t cry. My blood is my tears because I can’t cry - there’s no way for me to show emotion that isn’t self-harm, and I wish there was."

Dr. Phyllis R. Koch-Sheras demonstrates her powerful approach to working with clients' dreams. Dreams frequently come up for discussion in the course of therapy, and the insights clients might gain from dreams can help the therapeutic process.

In this self-directed approach, Dr. Koch-Sheras teaches clients to use a special technique called "dream language" to describe their dreams, which emphasizes the client's own creation of the dream. By translating the dream language and role-playing aspects of the dream, clients gain insight that may reflect on their lives. Dr. Koch-Sheras helps the client to translate her dream and obtain some lessons from the dream, including ways to apply these lessons during her waking life.

Watch expert Narrative therapist Stephen Madigan in an actual counseling session with a perfectionist ten-year old boy and his mother.

Children can feel overtaken by family problems and allow those problems to define who they are. In this video, Stephen Madigan presents a refreshing approach that allows family members to separate themselves from their problems and retell their stories. By asking a series of compassionate questions, Madigan quickly gets to the heart of this family's frustration - a pattern of competitive taunting among the six children in the house. Madigan then helps them uncover skills, strengths and solutions to take home in order to break the family pattern. Jon Carlson and Don Keat introduce Dr. Madigan, and facilitate an in-depth discussion of the further impact and uses of the model.

*Part of the series CHILD THERAPY WITH THE EXPERTS

"It is a true pleasure to watch Stephen Madigan demonstrate the power of externalizing as he asks questions from a place of authentic curiosity, compassion, and heart. True to narrative philosophy, he invites a 10-year-old boy to be the expert, allowing the boy and his mother to successfully create an alternative story to take home to their family. This is indeed an inspiring and informative look at the narrative approach, including both the pre and post session conversations with Madigan."

Why would four innocent men confess to a brutal crime they didn't commit? FRONTLINE investigates the conviction of four U.S. Navy sailors for the rape and murder of a Norfolk, Virginia, woman in 1997. In interviews with the sailors, viewers learn of some of the high-pressure police interrogation techniques, including the threat of the death penalty, sleep deprivation, and intimidation that led each of them to confess, despite any evidence linking them to the crime. All four sailors are now out of prison - one served his sentence and the other three were granted conditional pardons last summer - but the men were not exonerated as felons or sex offenders. The case raises disturbing questions about the actions of the police and prosecutors, who relied on the sailors' often contradictory confessions for their convictions, and disregarded DNA evidence that pointed to a lone assailant who would later confess to the crime himself while serving prison time for another rape.

A comprehensive and groundbreaking series dealing with the multitude and complexity of factors that arise in psychotherapy with gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals, couples and families. Reflects the contributions of 27 of the most influential and respected scholars and practitioners in the field as well as over 30 gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals who share their stories and perspectives.

1. HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVES
The history of mental health practice with gay, lesbian and bisexual people is both complex and constantly evolving. This introductory program to the series focuses on some of the most important historical developments from ancient times to the present, including: early attempts to pathologize and change homosexuality; the influences that led to the depathologizing of homosexuality; the contemporary bias in psychotherapy, illustrated by a poignant account of therapy abuse by Robert Gentry, the nation's first openly gay mayor; "conversion therapies" to repathologize homosexuality and modern attempts to change sexual orientation; recent affirmative mental health approaches; the current APA guidelines for working with GLB clients; and, real testimony of affirmative psychotherapy from a client after years of negative therapy experiences. Archival film clips and interviews with the experts are used throughout to illustrate this history of treatment approaches and mental health attitudes towards the GLB community.

2. INDIVIDUAL ASSESSMENT AND PSYCHOTHERAPY
Gay, lesbian, and bisexual people utilize mental health services at a rate considerably higher than heterosexuals, and over 95 percent of psychotherapists treat GLB clients in their practice. This program focuses on some of the most salient assessment and treatment issues that clinicians should know. This video will teach you about: the effectiveness of cognitive therapy with this population; implications of internalized homophobia and the importance of hypothesis testing in therapy; assessment of presenting problems and stages of identity development for GLB clients; and, heterosexist bias in diagnosis of several DSM-IV-TR disorders. In the last half of the program you'll see an extraordinary simulation of two therapy sessions by Dr. Christine Padesky with 'Greg' on his coming out issues, as well as descriptions of the therapy process and techniques being demonstrated. This award-winning segment, highly rated by graduate school classes, is an outstanding training demonstration for both students and experienced psychotherapists.

3. RELATIONSHIPS, FAMILIES AND COUPLES COUNSELING
Until recently, the couples and family therapy literature has ignored same-sex families and few clinicians have had training in this area. In this groundbreaking program, you will see:
*Dr. Robert Jay Green, an innovative researcher and clinician, emphasize key issues and new approaches in providing mental health services to GLB couples, including relational ambiguity, sexual exclusivity, and development of social support networks.
*Dr. Armand Cerbone join Dr. Green in a discussion of how internalized homophobia affects relationships.
*Dr. Richard Rodriguez discuss the importance of families of choice for GLB couples.
*Dr. Isaiah Crawford, a leading scholar on same-sex parenting, summarize research-based characteristics of GLB family constellations, as well as provide very helpful suggestions on how therapists can provide support to GLB families.
Throughout this program interview clips from same-sex couples, parents and their children are used to illustrate and personalize the important material covered by the expert presenters. This video program will enhance your understanding of GLB relationships and families, allowing you to be more effective in conducting individual and couples therapy with this population

4. THE BISEXUAL EXPERIENCE
The first educational program on the psychology of bisexuality, this video features cutting-edge research presented by some of the leading scholars in the field. The emerging body of scientific evidence over the past 30 years suggests a new paradigm of sexual orientation that is multidimensional, sometimes fluid, and highly individual, allowing for a greater validation of bisexuality. In this program you'll see:
*Three bisexual individuals, Greg, Susannah, and Skott share their insightful personal journeys.
*Dr. Fritz Klein use his famous grid to demonstrate the multivariable and fluid nature of sexual orientation.
*Dr. Sari Dworkin present various definitions, models, and types of bisexuality, as well as the developmental challenges of bisexual identity and the bisexual coming out process.
*Dr. Ron Fox profile who bisexuals are using data from his largest-to-date demographic study.
*Dr. Mary Bradford join Dr. Fox in educating therapists on how to provide more effective and affirming mental health services to bisexual women and bisexual men.

5. THE COMING OUT PROCESS
This program features three diverse personal coming out stories: A young African American woman who was institutionalized when she told her parents; a retired professional Latino man who came out to his wife and children later in life; and an affirming mother who shares the process her family went through when her teenage son came out to them. Commentary is provided by Dr. Eli Coleman, Dr. Sari Dworkin, and Dr. Ritch Savin-Williams, noted experts and researchers in the field.

6. DIVERSITY AND MULTIPLE IDENTITIES
Lesbians, gay, and bisexual people of color must manage conflicting allegiances with divergent social worlds including their ethnic culture, the majority culture and the gay/bisexual community. This program highlights personal accounts by GLB individuals from diverse ethnic groups, as well as commentary by Dr. Beverly Greene and other distinguished experts. The final segment shows a reenactment of a compelling cross-cultural therapy session by Dr. Christine Padesky with a Korean lesbian client.

7. SEXUAL MINORITY ADOLESCENTS
Combining the voices of gay and lesbian youth with leading professionals, this program provides an insightful look at the GLB adolescent experience. This video combines the latest research and effective treatment approaches by such experts as Dr. Ritch Savin-Wiliams, Dr. Karla Anhalt and Teresa DeCrescenzo, and includes vital information for working with this special population.

Scientists have long operated under the principle that intelligent behavior must be directed by a centralized consciousness. This program examines evidence that the act of swarming creates an altogether different form of intelligence: decentralized awareness, consciousness with no center. The following facets of swarm intelligence are addressed: how individual actions within a flock of starlings create a large-scale system that controls itself and makes collective decisions; how local decisions within a colony of red harvester ants positively shape the aggregate well-being of the entire colony; the limited ability of a single fish to manipulate the movement of its school through bad decision-making; the application of swarm intelligence to robotics; and whether, or to what extent, crowds of people self-organize through the collective dynamics of swarm logic.

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to sit in on three fascinating consultation sessions with legendary psychoanalyst, Dr. Otto Kernberg. The clarity of his insights, and the direct and practical advice he gives, will certainly dispel many myths about contemporary psychoanalytic practice.

1. Amy presents the case of a woman who grew up being severely sexually abused. According to Amy, "She'd be happy if she never had sex for the rest of her life". Amy wants to be able to better help her client free herself from her victim stance and black/white thinking.

2. Steve discusses a client he has been seeing for four months yet still feels like a stranger. Steve wonders why his client's conflicts with his wife, which led him into therapy in the first place, don't come up in sessions.

3. Annie describes her work with an isolated, single man who is longing for a fully expressed sexual life, yet is caught in masochistic and fetishistic wishes. Annie has tried to help him with his extreme sexual inhibition yet feels stuck when her convictions clash with the approach of the 12-step group he attends.

By viewing these consultations, you'll get a keen sense of Kernberg's mastery of working with extremely challenging patients, as well as his skill as a teacher and consultant. By asking a series of wisely chosen questions, he is able to quickly hone in on key characterological aspects of the patients, as well as the dynamics of the therapist-client interactions, and then offer extremely useful and jargon-free suggestions on how each therapist can proceed in a more effective manner.

Working with severe personality disorders is perhaps the most challenging task clinicians face. And while the psychoanalytic literature offers profound insights on this topic, it also can be quite daunting to many therapists.

In this interview, Kernberg first lays out the core principle of Object Relations theory, and his concept of the "borderline personality organization", characterized by identity diffusion, that underlies severe personality disorders. He walks viewers through the Structured Interview for Personality Organization, giving therapists the opportunity to learn a highly effective and pragmatic way to begin treatment by assessing whether patients suffer from an underlying personality disorder. Kernberg goes on to describe his detailed, manualized, psychoanalytic treatment protocol, explaining the four core treatment techniques: interpretation, transference analysis, technical neutrality, and counter-transference analysis.

Weaving in examples of his own challenging cases, such as an enraged patient who brought in scissors to session and cut up all of his plants, Kernberg serves as a guide for therapists who want support in understanding and managing the dynamics of the oftentimes difficult therapeutic relationship with severely disturbed patients. He discusses how to set limits with chronically suicidal patients, how to work with aggression and violence, how to deal with countertransference reactions, and the essentiality of collegial support.

In these two interviews with James Hillman, the founder of Archetypal Psychology minces no words in critiquing current directions in psychotherapy, and shares his vision for a more creative, soulful, and imaginative approach. Hillman further probes deeply into the psyche and underbelly of modern society, and offers some unexpected insights.

JAMES HILLMAN ON ARCHETYPAL THERAPY
If you're a student or professional in the field of psychology and you've ever wondered, "Hey, where's the excitement and imagination in psychology?" you've got a friend in James Hillman. In this fascinating interview, Dr. Hillman offers an inspiring critique of what he calls a "very peculiar field" and passionately expresses his longing for a psychology that enjoys and respects the psyche rather than fears and confines it.

Hillman, a self-described "renegade psychologist", argues for re-visioning psychology in a way that encourages people to get curious about the psyche rather than pathologize it. He argues that the more we embrace surprise and wonder and the less we focus on rational understanding, the more we will enjoy being alive. He speaks fervently about the importance of imagination and dreams, while encouraging clients and therapists alike to cultivate a sense of awe.

With the current emphasis on evidence-based, quick-fix approaches to mental health, Hillman's call to slow down, pay attention, and make time for the soul to come out of its shell is truly radical. If you find yourself feeling heavy and dispirited about the field and long for a more soulful and creative approach to psychotherapy, spend some time with James Hillman on this DVD and you're sure to feel inspired, liberated, and rejuvenated.

JAMES HILLMAN ON THE SOULLESS SOCIETY
In this compelling interview with one of the world's most respected psychologists and social critics, Dr. Hillman takes a critical look at American culture, from how we relate to passersby on the street, to our response to 9/11 and Katrina, to what happens between therapist and client in the consulting room. He delves into diverse topics such as the addiction to innocence, the value of breakdown, the terrible oppression of being normal, and the role of elders. With his characteristic passion and fervor, Dr. James Hillman shares his thoughts on what's wrong with American society, what we can do about it, and what really matters most.

This intriguing video will inspire anyone who has a longing for more authenticity and connection to cultivate a deeper sense of curiosity and wake up to the mystery of being alive. Hillman's discussion about the role of psychology and psychotherapy in perpetuating the addiction to security and innocence will be of particular interest to anyone looking for a thoughtful critique of psychology. With counterintuitive injunctions such as, "Be rude!" and "Leave out hope", Hillman offers his wise guidance about what we can all do.

Be prepared to be both challenged and inspired as Dr. Hillman doesn't hold back in his critique of modern psychology. From watching this video, you will:
* Gain an understanding of archetypal psychotherapy
* Develop ways to think imaginatively about mental illness and how to relate to clients' symptoms with curiosity and awe
* Learn to ask new kinds of questions that point clients in the direction of greater enjoyment and liberation.

James Hillman on the Soulless Society is an enlivening critique of modern American society and a call for awakening more authenticity in our daily lives.
From watching this video, you will:
* Learn how to cultivate more curiosity and awe in your everyday life.
* Be motivated to think critically about the role of psychology and psychotherapy in modern American society
* Learn about the possibility of re-visioning psychology to include the soul

Master therapist Jean McLendon demonstrates Satir Family Therapy in this very compelling and touching video. Watch as McLendon, one of the foremost practitioners of Virginia Satir's approach to family therapy, in this touching live session with Janice, a single mother, and her eleven-year-old son, John. Learn the essence of the Satir method as McLendon elegantly demonstrates what she calls "a model for the brave and courageous and the big-hearted souls."

"I just want to stop having so much anger inside and just stop being mean to other people," declares John at the beginning of the session. Unlike many children who get dragged to therapy against their will by their parents, John stepped up to the plate to ask his mother if he could talk to a counselor about his anger. In this heart-warming session, McLendon gently helps John accept the sadness underneath his anger, as she uncovers a series of significant losses John has had to face so early in his young life. With deep care and reverence, McLendon helps both John and his mother to embrace the vulnerable parts of themselves with tenderness and love.

Viewers will have the opportunity to watch McLendon skillfully demonstrate key aspects of the Satir approach, such as creating safety, making contact, and validating feelings and desires. She also shows how the family mapping technique can be used as a visual tool to help deepen the work. An added bonus is an engaging discussion after the session that sheds further light on the Satir approach to family therapy.

REVIEW
"With this demonstration, Jean illustrates the Satir Model in practice. It is a marvelous teaching tool. The way she moves her body and uses her voice reminds me of Virginia. Every step she takes is precious and to the point. Her focus is positive and transformational. Rather than dwelling on the presenting symptom, Jean carefully helps her clients move forward from anger to hurt, to loss, to grief and to acceptance."

Watch Harry J. Aponte, a highly regarded therapist who worked closely with Salvador Minuchin, demonstrate his unique approach to Structural Therapy in this compelling family therapy session.

Adrian and Judy are skeptical about therapy. They have been to several therapists to try to understand their daughter Pam's anger, and are frustrated with the lack of improvement in Pam's behavior. Finally, in this session with Aponte, they are on their way to making positive changes in the family dynamic. Aponte masterfully forms an alliance with Pam, a difficult-to-reach woman in her thirties with developmental limitations, by connecting with her humanity through curiosity and direct engagement. He demonstrates key principles of Structural Therapy by focusing on concrete day-to-day issues and engaging actively with all three family members to help them understand the underlying conflicts beneath Pam's anger. Aponte strikes a delicate balance of meeting the family on their terms, and yet confidently making observations as well as asserting what they need to do to make the changes they so desperately desire.

In this three-part video, Aponte discusses his approach to family therapy, conducts a real session with this challenging family, and then offers commentary about the session. Aponte's responses to questions from an audience of therapists further elucidate the rationale behind his interventions. If you've ever struggled with how to engage a hard-to-reach client or are curious about applying a structural approach to therapeutic work with challenging families, this video will prove to be both inspiring and instructive.

*Note that this is the same family as in the Phil Guerin Video Bowenian Family Therapy, so it is interesting to contrast the styles of these two master therapists.

By watching this video, you will:
* Learn the theoretical components of Structural Family Therapy.
* Identify specific techniques and interventions characteristic of Structural Family Therapy.
* Observe how a clinician employing a Structural Therapy approach conducts an initial family therapy session

Watch Dr. Philip Guerin masterfully conducting a live family therapy session, followed by an illuminating discussion about his innovative and sophisticated approach to Bowenian Family Therapy.

Pam is a 32-year-old woman who lives at home with her parents, Adrian and Judy, and doesn't have many friends. She clearly has some sort of developmental disability, but Adrian and Judy don't understand why Pam is so angry and uncommunicative. In fact, Pam says she doesn't even understand why she behaves the way she does. In this live family therapy session, Dr. Guerin helps this befuddled family gain more understanding and clarity, while shining a light on the underlying anger, fear, and sadness that reside beneath the surface not only in Pam, but in her parents as well.

In this video, Philip Guerin skillfully demonstrates ways to engage a closed family system, while highlighting several key principles of Bowenian therapy, including: establishing therapeutic safety and connection with each family member; lowering anxiety; utilizing process questions; neutralizing dysfunctional triangles in the family system; and offering relationship experiments.

By watching this video, you will:
* Learn the theoretical components of Bowenian Family Therapy.
* Identify specific techniques and interventions characteristic of Bowenian Family Therapy.
* Observe how a clinician employing a Bowenian Therapy approach conducts an initial family therapy session.

As noted above, Pam clearly has some sort of developmental disability, although it is unclear what the nature of her deficit is. But it is quite striking to notice how Guerin finds a way to engage her as a full adult member of the family, not talking down to her in any way, and in doing so provides effective modeling for the parents. Note that this is the same family as in the video Structural Family Therapy featuring Harry Aponte, so it is interesting to contrast the styles of these two master therapists.

REVIEW
"I found the Guerin DVD to be a lovely piece of work demonstrating individuation and de-triangulation in this complex family system. Guerin demonstrates connectedness, directness and gentle humor as he untangles the knots in this family with a developmentally disabled daughter, while showing us how to respect when a family cannot yet open a taboo subject."

Couples therapy is exceedingly difficult to master, and in-depth training and experience in individual therapy unfortunately does not prepare one for the rapid pace, potential pitfalls, and multifaceted nature of working with couples in crisis. This exceptional series will help you whether you are new to couples therapy, or are a seasoned practitioner wishing to expand your skills. It is especially compelling to view these leading experts translate theory into practice; although their underlying assumptions and techniques vary widely, each manages to find unique way to engage with the couple and begin to help them sort out the areas where they are stuck or in conflict.

This unique series showcases six leading couples therapist conducting live sessions and then discussing their work.

In this video of an actual cognitive therapy session, Dr. Judith Beck works with Anne to develop practical skills that will enable her to lose weight and make enduring changes to her lifestyle.

Anne has struggled all her life with food and weight issues and has dieted dozens of times, only to gain the weight back. In this very human, and touching session, Beck emphasizes the development of a new set of skills as the crucial element of weight loss. Beck takes an extensive dieting history - including Anne's assessment of "good eating days" and "bad eating days," she identifies Anne's motivations for losing weight and teaches self-motivation techniques, and she prepares Ann to recover quickly from the inevitable mistakes she will make. Other techniques she uses include identifying the obstacles that may prevent Anne from making these changes, strategizing solutions, exploring Anne's eating triggers and working with Anne's "all-or-nothing" approach to dieting.

While Beck bases her approach on the core principles of Cognitive Therapy, the tools and techniques demonstrated in this video can be integrated with many types of therapeutic styles and will be useful to any therapist working with clients with weight issues. Clients with weight issues frequently become caught in a vicious cycle of losing weight and gaining it back, impairing their ability to enjoy their lives fully. At the same time, many therapists struggle with how to be helpful to these clients. This video will help therapists develop the skills required to fully utilize CBT in these cases.

REVIEWS
"This DVD is a rare opportunity to watch master clinician Judith Beck show how the proven principles of CBT can help clients achieve permanent weight loss. The coaching session focuses on identifying and changing the cognitive and behavioral processes that accompany eating, weight gain and weight loss. Dr. Beck artfully blends the specific strategies of CBT with empathy, genuineness, gentleness and warmth. If you have a thirst for new knowledge, this will give you a taste of the newest area that CBT is proving to be effective in." Dennis Greenberger, PhD, Co-author (with Christine Padesky PhD) of Mind Over Mood: Change How You Feel By Changing The Way You Think

"As an experienced CBT practitioner, I found that this video really helped me refocus my behavioral change efforts for dieters. Judith Beck superbly teaches therapists how to help clients learn cognitive skills about countering self-criticism, creating motivation, and enabling regular pleasurable eating within a diet. Her emphasis on teaching these skills prior to actual dieting was particularly useful. I heartily recommend this to all therapists who wish to improve their effectiveness with this population."

Therapists of all orientations will benefit from seeing how psychoanalytic and psychodynamic principles can be effectively adapted to short-term therapy with clients and patients facing issues of grief, death and dying.

VOLUME ONE: A Brief Psychodynamic Approach
Over the course of four actual sessions, Milton Viederman, MD demonstrates a psychoanalytic approach to working with grief. Paying detailed attention to the subtle nuances of the therapeutic relationship, Viederman adapts the principles of psychoanalysis to a course of brief therapy. Pat is the primary caregiver for her dying husband and is experiencing the grief and fear around his impending death. Forming an interpretation of Pat's core conflict and elaborating this theme throughout the sessions, Viederman helps Pat explore the early life experiences that give meaning to her current emotional responses. He builds rapport and trust with this open and engaging client, offering her a supportive environment in which true insight is produced. In a poignant follow-up session, Pat reveals that the therapy was instrumental in helping her be at peace with her husband's death.

VOLUME TWO: Hospital Consultation with Medically Ill Patients
Milton Viederman, MD, brings his psychoanalytic orientation to actual hospital consultations with cancer patients.

In this companion volume, Viederman continues his exploration of the application of psychoanalytic principles to brief therapy. While many of us feel comfortable meeting clients on our own turf, we are often less certain how to navigate the therapeutic relationship in a hospital setting with visibly ill patients. Working quickly to assess the conscious and unconscious coping mechanisms that affect the patient's experience of illness and treatment, Viederman's main objective is to create a supportive relationship and relive patient distress. Interspersed with illuminating commentary, Viederman skillfully demonstrates when to probe defensive structures and when to leave them alone so as not to increase the patient's anxiety.

"A senior and skilled clinician introduces us to five patients with terminal or life-threatening illnesses. We learn about their experiences as they confront pain, the anticipation of death, the problems of treatment, the crises that emerge in intimate relationships, and their strategies for coping. We also learn how an expert understands these issues-and uses that understanding in helping patients cope more effectively. This is an invaluable educational tool for all who work with dying patients, and particularly for medical students, residents, and other psychiatrists who consult in general medical settings."
Robert Michels, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College

"These outstanding videos are invaluable aids in the teaching of psychotherapy. Dr. Viederman demonstrates just how he approaches and explains patient suffering from loss and from physical illness. The major benefit is the opportunity that Viederman offers to see the patient in different ways and with different theories."
Arnold Goldberg, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Rush Medical College; Training and Supervising Analyst, Institute for Psychoanalysis, Chicago

"One of American's most gifted psychotherapists, Professor Milton Viederman, has given us an opportunity to witness his science, art, and wisdom in establishing an effective therapeutic relationship with patients with severe medical illnesses. The therapeutic interventions that aid these patients highlight the role of brief psychotherapy and some of the key emotional processes and cognitive mechanisms that must be dealt with. Consideration of the psychodynamic aspects, meanings, and context of their lives is a critical part of the well-being of the patients and of good medical care. Powerful and moving, a stunning set of examples of the achievement of psychotherapy by a teacher's teacher."
Jack Barchas, MD, Psychiatrist-in-Chief, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York

In this program, Dr. Laura S. Brown demonstrates how this qualitative and phenomenological approach, which takes into account the meanings of gender and power in the client's social realities, empowers the client.

The goals of the therapy are determined collaboratively within the session, creating not just tailor-made therapy, but an egalitarian relationship conducive to client empowerment. This relationship, in which each person brings equally valued expertise to the process, is essential to the therapeutic goal of helping clients to feel more personal power in their lives.

Over the course of six sessions, Dr. Brown works with a 43-year-old woman who has three children and a history of substance abuse, poor relationship choices, and feeling unloved, unappreciated, and devalued. She also has struggled for years with her size and how she feels about her body. Although she is now in early recovery and feels more stable in her life, she suffers from critical self-talk and a habit of blaming herself for things for which she is not responsible, as well as difficulties in being able to take feedback about her own actions.

Dr. Brown talks with the client about developing self-empathy, learning to quiet the critical voice she hears, and recognizing that caring for herself is empowering. The client is invited to see that she has many of the inner resources that she needs for her recovery process, with a goal of reducing her reliance on the authority of others, including the therapist.

Those who prey upon children for sex have committed crimes so abhorrent that most of us would like to lock them away for life. But in some cases, an offender can be rehabilitated - and, in the process, provide insight into the predator's mind.

This program goes inside a pedophile's distorted thought patterns while showing how expert psychological treatment, combined with blunt feedback from fellow offenders, can help bring such criminals out of denial and curb their deviant behavior. Following a professional actor who, using real criminal profiles, takes on the psyche of a child sex offender, the film examines Rolleston Prison's groundbreaking Kia Marama rehabilitation unit in Christchurch , New Zealand.

"War is about one thing only: it's about killing. You either learn to kill somebody else or you get killed or wounded yourself." This film examines how soldiers grapple simultaneously with their duty and their own humanity as it tracks the perilous psychological journeys of four decorated combat veterans of World War II, the Vietnam War, and the Iraq War. A combination of frank interviews and battlefield footage, The Good Soldier addresses the initial reluctance to kill, the act of killing from a distance and hand-to-hand, incidences of combat zone atrocities, the experience of getting wounded, mixed feelings of relief and alienation upon returning stateside, post-tour substance abuse and mental trauma, efforts at closure, and involvement with veterans-for-peace movements. A sobering statement both about and against war.

Now you can help your students walk into their first session with confidence! They'll hear from new therapists what it's like to begin clinical work, which will answer troublesome questions, anxieties and provide for fruitful group discussion.

Students training to be therapists often don't know what to expect going into their first sessions with clients. This can ignite a quickly growing list of fears inside their heads: What if my client doesn't like me? What if I come off as inexperienced? What if I don't know what to say? Likewise, seasoned therapists all remember the first time they met with a client - the anxiety and self-doubt were palpable.

In this video, you'll hear from several therapists that have just made it through their first internships. Specifically, you'll learn about:

*How it felt to meet with a client for the first time: what they were worried about before the session, what it was like in the room, and how it felt afterwards
*What was particularly helpful during their first internship
*What challenges they faced and how they overcame them
*How they developed their clinical confidence
*What advice they received that was most helpful during this challenging year in their career
*And how it feels now to be a therapist compared to when they first began

With English Subtitles for hearing-impaired viewers.

"This is an engaging, professionally-done video, giving practical and experience-near advice for beginning therapists-in-training. It demystifies the ordinary fears, exhilarations, and challenges as one begins to practice psychotherapy in trainee and internship settings. It is most appropriate for students in graduate programs in clinical and counseling psychology, and includes a helpful Instructor's Manual to orient classroom discussion."
Kenneth Bradford, PhD - Adjunct Professor, Graduate School for Holistic Studies, John F. Kennedy University

"The students interviewed in this engaging video candidly voice some of the key concerns of novice clinicians and share some of the ways they have effectively addressed them. It is guaranteed to stimulate student discussion and authentic exploration of the fears, crises of confidence, and challenges associated with first clinical experiences. In short, an inspiring video that is an excellent resource for students and faculty supervisors."
J. Fraser Pierson, PhD - Professor of Psychology Southern Oregon University

"This training video is useful in so many ways. The trainees are both articulate and down-to-earth, and are able to normalize the anxiety of beginning to see clients from a variety of perspectives. Even more essential, the students model self-reflectiveness and an appropriate level of self-disclosure. Supervisors of beginning students are sure to appreciate both the content of this video, and the process of healthy and compassionate self-examination that it promotes. Unlike many training videos, I liked the length, the quality, and the educational value of this video. We will use the video with all of our beginning students."

A pragmatic, informative and entertaining video offering solutions to the common ethical dilemmas that mental health practitioners face. Ideal for classrooms, clinical trainings, and licensed clinicians completing their CE requirement.

Do you know:
*Good recordkeeping is what can help you the most if a complaint is brought against you by your licensing board?
*Ethical rules vary by licensing board and state when it comes to such vital issues as confidentiality and privilege?
*What makes a boundary crossing a boundary violation, and when that violation becomes unethical and exploitive?
*The different standards of care as treatment provider and evaluator?

Volume II of this series addresses ethics, and the particular concern of being investigated by one’s licensing board for an alleged violation. Specifically, these four lively discussions between a psychologist, lawyer and journalist cover such murky matters as: bartering, boundaries, touch, self-disclosure, gifts, multiple-member clients such as couples and families, the initiation of treatment, breaches in confidentiality, ending treatment, electronic records, HIPAA, client debt, client suicide and a clinician’s death. Presented by Stephen Feldman, an expert in mental health law, this video lays out simple changes all clinicians can make to protect themselves and their practice. This is an invaluable resource that will dispel doubts and fears, enabling therapists to practice more confidently.

REVIEWS

"Provides an excellent update on ethics. It addresses some of the thorniest issues in a very engaging manner. An excellent resource for both the training of students and the continuing education for practitioners! I plan to recommend it to my students and colleagues."
Ronald Levant, PhD, ABPP - 2005 President American Psychological Association, Professor of Psychology, Univ. of Akron

"Provides a wealth of information on important issues every therapist's faces, and does so in a conversational, engaging, and professional manner. I am particularly impressed with the in-depth analysis of these critical topics and how the complexity of each is addressed. This DVD, and its accompanying Instructor's Manual, appears to me to be the most comprehensive material anywhere on ethics in the helping professions."
Samuel T Gladding, PhD - 2004-5 President, American Counseling Association, Professor, Wake Forest Univ.

"This program does a good job of distinguishing between clinical, ethical and legal concerns as well as the differences between various federal, state and professional codes. In addition, various theoretical perspectives are considered with an emphasis on consistency between theoretical stance and clinical interventions. The use of vignettes is effective in presenting the issues in a meaningful and memorable way, while the dialogue captures the complexity of the issues and allows for the presentation of multiple perspectives. Rather than codifying absolutes, the presentation emphasizes the various elements that should be taken into account when facing an ethical dilemma, including the importance of consultation. Useful for instructors teaching legal and ethical considerations in professional practice as well as students and interns studying for licensing exams."

Watch a true master, Dr. Peter A. Levine, demonstrate a course of body-oriented trauma therapy in this extremely compelling and in-depth video with an Iraq Veteran diagnosed with severe PTSD.

Working with Ray's presenting symptoms over the course of five sessions, Levine introduces a number of essential trauma resolution techniques that markedly improve Ray's Tourette-like convulsions, as well as his overall pain and emotional outlook. Levine developed Somatic Experiencing® based on the premise that trauma overwhelms the nervous system and that it needs to be addressed somatically before emotional processing is possible. Thorough commentary by Levine, as well as an extensive interview, helps to elucidate the subtleties of his methods. You will walk away from this video with a sound understanding of this approach to trauma work. This method can be integrated with and add richness to a number of therapeutic modalities and can be used to treat all manner of trauma - from car accidents, surgeries, child abuse, experiences of violence, and so on.

The Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) was one of the founding fathers of modern depth psychology. His most famous concept, the collective unconscious, had a deep influence not only on psychology but also on philosophy and the arts. Here, in his own words and writings, as well as with accounts of his closest relatives, we gain a personal insight into the life of the great psychoanalyst. He was a colleague of Sigmund Freud early in his career, but a disagreement in 1909 ended their collaboration. Nearing the end of his life, Jung stated that he remembered "only interior experiences, those that - beyond all illusions - really count in the life of an individual," which helps explain why Jung has inspired the New Age movement with his interest in occultism, Eastern religions, the I Ching, and mythology. This documentary approaches some of the most intimate aspects of Jung's life, while exploring some of his greatest and most sensational therapeutic intuitions of his acute and original mind.

A highly regarded expert on memory's malleability "and a lightning rod for controversy" Elizabeth Loftus has proved that people can become subject to false memory, with major implications for matters involving eyewitness testimony and repressed recollections. In this lecture, Loftus details her research on the malleability of memory. Topics include memory paradigms; memory distortion, as demonstrated by an incident involving Hillary Clinton; growing evidence of criminal convictions that were based on false memories; repressed memory accusations and implanted memories, as demonstrated by the landmark case Ramona v. Isabella; induced memory and misinformation studies; the creation of false memories, as demonstrated by Loftus's Lost in the Mall Experiment; how psychotherapy techniques such as guided imagination, dream interpretation, and hypnosis can lead to false memories; and more. A Q&A session follows.

Now, for the first time, counselors have access to a comprehensive boxed set of DVDs on working with diverse clients.

The DVDs are guided, explicit demonstrations of how to seamlessly infuse culture into counseling sessions. This is a first-of-its-kind product, one that will be needed as the counseling field embraces all clients from all groups in our society. Above all fields, counseling and psychotherapy require modeling of sessions and skills in realistic settings. Here, eight sessions are conducted with narrative introductions to the central issues for working with each group. Each session has been scripted to highlight the most common topics in each area. Subtitles teach viewers the skills being used as well as the cultural issues that clients are exhibiting. The vignettes were created in consultation with national experts in each area. As an added bonus, the DVD Key Practices in Culturally Alert Counseling is included, which demonstrates more than 20 overall culturally alert counseling skills that can be used immediately by counselors. By viewing the session in its entirety, students and clinicians will benefit from seeing firsthand how the counselor manages the session and uses opportunities to deepen the therapeutic relationship.

CULTURALLY ALERT COUNSELING: WORKING WITH AFRICAN AMERICAN CLIENTS
Working with ethnically and racially diverse clients presents counselors with a unique set of opportunities and challenges. Understanding a client's worldview offers the opportunity to connect and build trust on a deeper level, but it also presents counselors with a challenge to develop the right set of skills unique to their client(s). This DVD presents a carefully illustrated counseling session, which brings out many issues common for working with African American clients. A White male counselor works with an African American professional woman on her adjustment to a new workplace and the challenges of being in an ethnic minority. The session brings out five key topics that can be included in counseling with African Americans: spirituality and religion, family, communication, language, and discrimination. The counselor demonstrates four dimensions of culturally alert counseling that may be important, especially for members of other cultural groups who are working with many African American clients: building trust, acknowledging societal bias, including family and ancestors in the work, and advocating. . 29 minutes

CULTURALLY ALERT COUNSELING: WORKING WITH ASIAN CLIENTS
Working with ethnically and racially diverse clients presents a unique set of opportunities and challenges. Understanding a client's worldview offers the opportunity to connect and build trust on a deeper level, but it also presents counselors with a challenge to develop the right set of skills unique to their client(s). In this carefully illustrated session, a White counselor helps an East Asian client deal with family and relationship dilemmas. The demonstration highlights issues that many Asian American clients face, such as duty to one's family, conformity to group norms, obedience to parents and deference to authorities, maintenance of interpersonal harmony - which includes avoidance of confrontation and indirect expression of negative feelings or views - and educational and career achievement. The counselor demonstrates the following skills that might be important in working with Asian clients: taking a solution-focused approach, showing interest in and knowledge of the client's culture, giving self-disclosure about previous successes, and including the place of the family in discussion of individual concerns. The session is tightly scripted to highlight key elements in culturally alert counseling with this group. 20 minutes

CULTURALLY ALERT COUNSELING: WORKING WITH CONSERVATIVE RELIGIOUS CLIENTS
For many clients, religion is a central aspect of their lives. Counselors must know how to support and challenge clients in a helpful way by incorporating religion into counseling in a useful way. This breakthrough DVD illustrates key issues in the important but often-ignored area of working with religious issues in counseling. In this session, a counselor helps a conservative Christian woman incorporate her faith into the solution to her family and relationship dilemma. The DVD demonstrates many of the following issues in working with religious clients: showing respect for the client's faith, having some knowledge of that faith tradition, assessing the role and importance of the client's faith, establishing trust, and reinterpreting religious understandings. 17 minutes

CULTURALLY ALERT COUNSELING: WORKING WITH LATINO/LATINA CLIENTS
Latino/Latina clients share many characteristics while, of course, being diverse among themselves. In this DVD, a White female counselor works with a Latino/Latina couple with alertness to some issues common to traditional Latino/Latina culture. The counselor sensitively accounts for cultural dimensions such as familismo, respeto, simpatia, and defined gender roles in this session. The DVD illustrates culturally alert counseling skills that might be important in working with Latino/Latina clients, such as focusing on the present, taking a problem-solving orientation, including family in the process, acknowledging the family hierarchy, and adapting language. The session uses graphics and narrative voiceover to teach counselors how to be effective with Latino/Latina clients. 21 minutes

CULTURALLY ALERT COUNSELING: WORKING WITH GAY/LESBIAN YOUTH CLIENTS
The importance of sensitive, proactive counseling work with members of sexual minorities cannot be overemphasized. Counselors must be prepared to work with the unique and universal issues that lesbian and gay youth face. In these six highly illustrated sessions, counselors gently help clients become themselves at two stages in the coming out process: coming out to self and coming out to others. The issues of those two stages are presented in graphics, followed by sessions that illustrate each issue. This is a must-see demonstration for all counselors. 59 minutes

CULTURALLY ALERT COUNSELING: A DEMONSTRATION OF SKILLS
For the first time, more than 20 key practices for incorporating culture into counseling work are illustrated in one place. The DVD is organized into the three important topics of culturally alert accessibility, assessment, and intervention. Counselors demonstrate each of the subskills in this highly illustrated, fast-paced DVD. Narrator voiceover, subtitles, and segments of sessions leave the viewer with a complete view of how to bring culture into the counseling room and beyond. This is necessary viewing for ethical practice in the 21st century. 59 minutes

It is certainly a treat to see one of the most bold and influential psychotherapists of our generation in an actual therapy session. Watch Albert Ellis demonstrate his signature style: confrontative, headstrong and steadfastly rational - and remarkably effective in just one session.

Learn to use Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy by watching the originator of the method in a therapy session with Roseanne, whose husband committed suicide in front of her and her baby daughter ten years ago. Ellis immediately points out how Roseanne uses the irrational beliefs of "condemnation" and "demandingness" to keep upsetting herself about the horrible event. Using REBT techniques, he helps Roseanne separate herself from her actions, reframing her belief that "I did a rotten thing/that makes me a bad person" to "I did a rotten thing/that means I made a mistake, but I am not a bad person." You'll be impressed at how quickly Ellis's reframes take root in Roseanne, as she repeats Ellis's teachings in her own words and from her own heart.

By watching this video, you'll be able to:
*Utilize REBT techniques, including defining goals, offering hypotheses about irrational beliefs and new emotions, and disputing inferences.
*Teach clients the definition of a rational belief, an irrational belief and the REBT philosophy on human growth.
*Integrate Ellis's use of confrontation, repetition and rational explanation in your own therapy work with clients.

Learn to use REBT with clients struggling with addiction by watching the originator of the method in an actual therapy session. Albert Ellis demonstrates his signature style with a difficult client; using rationality, strong language, and forceful directives, he is remarkably effective in just one session.

Orville would like to reduce his marijuana, alcohol and hallucinogen dependency but doesn't know how. Ellis immediately focuses in on Orville's low frustration tolerance and "self-downing" as the irrational beliefs that sustain his drug and alcohol addictions. Ellis debunks Orville's claim that if he doesn't always behave well, he is a bad person. He clarifies that it is certainly highly preferable to behave well, but that we are all fallible human beings who screw up sometimes. Orville's distractibility and flights into tangential stories challenge Ellis to keep Orville on task. You'll be impressed to see how Ellis remains focused on the issue at hand, pushing Orville to grapple with beliefs that are tough to change and addictive behaviors that are difficult to conquer.

By watching this video, you'll be able to:

*Utilize REBT techniques with clients struggling with addiction, including offering hypotheses about and disputing irrational beliefs, recognizing secondary gains and supporting rational thinking.
*Explain the REBT to your clients.
*Integrate Ellis's use of confrontation, repetition and rational explanation in your own therapy work with clients.

This series is designed to make some of psychology's more abstract theoretical and methodological issues accessible to students through case studies and examples that relate to everyday life experiences.

There are six programs in the series:

PSYCHOLOGY RESEARCH IN CONTEXT
This program clarifies selected principles of science by contextualizing them through easily comprehensible applications of psychological research. Divided into five sections, the video illustrates the hypothetical-deductive model of scientific reasoning via Piaget's classic conservation experiment and Donaldson and McGarrigle's challenge of it; the analysis of statistics involving scenarios in which a record producer considers signing a new band and a student carries out IQ testing; the use of graphs to present data from a study of romance ads; the concept of statistical significance through the conducting of memory tests; and data interpretation through a study measuring levels of aggression. 29 minutes

PERSPECTIVES ON PSYCHOLOGY
Better self-control begins with an understanding of the psychological factors that affect behavior. Section one of this program focuses on the influence of brain structure, brain chemistry, and genetics on behavior; section two illustrates key concepts of psychoanalytic theory; and section three distinguishes between classical and operant conditioning. Strengths and limitations of the biological, psychodynamic, and behaviorist perspectives are addressed as well. The program concludes by considering the issue of determinism and free will. 41 minutes

MENTAL DISORDER
What is abnormality? Using the case studies of two young women-one who has depression, one who has an anxiety disorder-as a springboard, this program presents three psychological perspectives on mental disorder. Section one considers it as a bodily disease, identifying underlying assumptions of the biomedical model and illustrating the treatments it offers. Section two looks at it as a disease of the mind, developing the view that the origins of some mental disorders may lie in people's experiences. And section three outlines the basis of the constructionist perspective and the idea that mental disorder is socially defined. The increasing medicalization of behavior is also addressed. 30 minutes

EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH METHODS IN PSYCHOLOGY
Drawing upon laboratory and field experiments, this program compares and contrasts experimental research methods through an attractiveness study involving young adults. Section one observes how subjects respond to photos in two lab environments - one comfortable, and one not. Then, section two repeats the experiment in two field locales: a trendy bar and a dull coffee shop. Does context make a difference to the outcomes? The program concludes with a third section, in which experts explore some of the issues common to both experimental methods: demand characteristics, ethical concerns, and reductionism. 28 minutes

NON-EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH METHODS IN PSYCHOLOGY
This program presents non-experimental research methods - questionnaires, interviews, and naturalistic observation - through three studies on the effects of cell phone use. Section one explains good questionnaire design while considering both the advantages and limitations of this method. Section two examines the use of unstructured interviews, a more nuanced approach to data collection. And section three spotlights the performance of naturalistic observation - and in the process illustrates some of the practical difficulties and ethical issues involved in this type of research. 34 minutes

CLASSIC STUDIES IN PSYCHOLOGY
This program brings to life five of psychology's most significant studies: Bandura's Bobo Doll Experiment, 1961; Milgram's Study of Obedience, 1963; Ainsworth's Strange Situation Experiment, 1971 and 1978; Zimbardo's Stanford Prison Experiment, 1973; and Loftus's Eyewitness Testimony Experiment, 1974. Footage from the original experiments and from contemporary reconstructions is featured throughout, along with expert commentary and analysis. 38 minutes *Click here to VIEW CLIP

In this extremely powerful live group session, master clinician and psychodramatist Tian Dayton works with group participants to confront childhood abuse, and work through trauma that they are carrying in their bodies. Dayton addresses these delicate issues with directness and great care, employing innovative action-oriented techniques that you can use in your work with clients, whether you are trained in psychodrama or not.

The body remembers the trauma that the mind does not. Psychodrama provides a space for the body to speak, for somatic memory to become conscious, and for the mind to connect and process what the body is experiencing. In this video, Travis speaks to his wounded heart and works through his fear of dying; Sheila speaks to her mother who committed suicide and releases anger that was locked up for many years; and Amal speaks to the birth mother she never met, confronting the belief that she was never loved or wanted. Dayton highlights the emotion that emerges from these participants' bodies, and helps give voice and meaning to the catharsis that emerges so that an integration between mind and body can occur.

In this extremely powerful live group session, master clinician and psychodramatist Tian Dayton guides participants to confront childhood abuse, and work through trauma that they are carrying in their bodies. Trauma from child abuse remains trapped inside and continues to threaten our feelings of safety and wellbeing through adulthood. Psychodrama allows us to safely reinhabit the body at the point of past abuse and make sense of the experience from an adult perspective.

In this video, Bob fears that he is passing on the legacy of abuse from his stepfather to his four-year-old granddaughter. He acts out scenes with his mother, stepfather and granddaughter, playing both himself and reversing roles. In so doing, Tian helps Bob release hidden emotions, say the things he never got to as a child, and create new meaning around his past and current relationships.

From watching this video, you'll be able to: Utilize role-play, role reversal and doubling techniques with clients who have suffered trauma from childhood abuse; Create psychodrama warm-up exercises, action scenes, and group sharing discussions; and, Adapt Tian Dayton's unique approach to working with childhood abuse to your own therapy work with clients.

Bracing themselves for a living nightmare, three individuals from varied backgrounds have agreed to live together while facing their common enemy: extreme agoraphobia. This two-part series follows their intense and emotional struggle, which at times appears hopeless. But Simon, Su, and Archana aren't alone in their endeavor - they're helped along the path to recovery by Professor Paul Salkovskis, Clinical Director of the Maudsley Hospital Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma at London's Institute of Psychiatry. Viewers will gain insight into the concept of exposure and response as a viable dimension of cognitive behavioral therapy.

*Contains some profanity

There are two programs in the series:

VENTURING OUT: Agoraphobics Confront Their Fears
When renowned psychologist Paul Salkovskis offers three agoraphobics a base from which to battle their fears, each sufferer embraces the opportunity to utilize the professor's "safe house". There's only one problem - getting there. This program illustrates the paralyzing anxiety agoraphobics typically experience when stepping outside their cloistered comfort zones. After Simon, Su, and Archana finally arrive at the house, Professor Salkovskis forces each to keep going outdoors to unearth the roots of his or her affliction. Su realizes that loud noises trigger her panic attacks, while Archana recognizes her own abandonment issues and Simon discovers how much he depends on the opinion of others. 48 minutes

FAR FROM HOME: Agoraphobics Face the Ultimate Test
Supported and cajoled by psychologist and cognitive behavioral therapist Paul Salkovskis, three agoraphobic Londoners have tentatively confronted their fears - but they still have a huge amount of work to do. This program shows what happens when the experiment moves to the next level. After frantic preparations, Simon, Su, and Archana accompany Professor Salkovskis on a 13-hour airplane flight to Japan. There they walk the hectic streets of Tokyo, explore an exotic fish market, and ride a bullet train while coming to terms with their deepest internal struggles - and the hard-won understanding that agoraphobia has much more to do with what's inside than outside.

Since the 1950s therapeutic communities (TCs) have effectively treated people with the most severe cases of substance abuse. The focus on an all encompassing community and peer support model is still thriving in TCs today. This comprehensive series blends historical and contemporary footage from active TCs with George De Leon's expert lectures on the framework, methods and components of an ideal TC.

Volume 1: THE THERAPEUTIC COMMUNITY PERSPECTIVE
De Leon lays out the framework and theory underlying a therapeutic community, including the TC approach to substance abuse treatment and recovery. He explains that the TC is different from other treatment models in that it views substance abuse as a disorder of the whole person, and aims to treat that whole person, not just the drug addiction. Thus, TCs create social living situations where all aspects of a person's personality are displayed in work, formal groups and social activities, and then addressed directly by the community. 54 minutes

From watching this video, you'll be able to:
*List the common personality characteristics of people with substance abuse disorders that TCs address.
*Utilize the TC model of recovery including mutual self-help, motivation, and developmental and social learning.
*Discuss the beliefs and values that encompass the TC's "right way of living".

Volume II: COMMUNITY AS METHOD
De Leon explains how a therapeutic community uses its social environment to change individuals' behaviors, lifestyles and identities. The community is the method itself: constant participation, evaluation, feedback and reinforcement of personal responsibility are core components of daily life. 44 minutes

From watching this video, you'll be able to:
*Discuss the necessary context for change including exclusivity of setting and variety of roles.
*Explain the expectations of TC members on participation and responsibility.
*Describe how assessment and response are administered as part of the ongoing activity and culture of TCs.

Volume III: COMPONENTS OF GENERIC THERAPEUTIC COMMUNITY
De Leon goes beyond theory to explain the specific operations of an ideal therapeutic community: what happens on a daily basis, what the physical space looks like, what activities are involved, and what are the functions and roles of the staff and community members. He emphasizes that all TCs can maximize their efficacy by enhancing and adhering to these components. 79 minutes

From watching this video, you'll be able to discuss:
*The importance of creating psychological separateness from the outside culture and creating space that reflects a community environment.
*The structure of day-to-day life including the resident work program, phase format, pathways of communication, duration of program and community activities.
*The roles and functions of staff versus community members and the importance of maintaining the peer support model.
*The use of encounter groups, awareness training, and emotional growth training to help community members change.

Encounter groups are at the heart of therapeutic communities. They demonstrate a break from traditional addiction counseling techniques and have been proven to be an effective and important means for change. However, institutional demands including increased paperwork and funding cuts have recently threatened the livelihood of encounter groups. In this series, Rod Mullen creates a strong argument for how and why we need to keep the encounter group thriving. Illustrated with powerful and compelling vignettes from actual encounter groups, these videos explore how encounter groups have evolved, what we can do to improve groups and overcome pitfalls, and what the keys are to leading successful groups.

Volume 1: EVOLUTION OF THE ENCOUNTER GROUP
Mullen explores the evolution of encounter groups beginning with the first groups created by Synanon founder Chuck Dederich in the 1950s. Mullen discusses the essential elements of these first groups including honesty, authenticity and mutual self-help-elements that are still core to encounter groups today. He highlights that although the brutal confrontational style of the first groups have softened, the commitment to hold oneself and other accountable remains central. He also discusses the challenges that face encounter groups and offers guidance on how to work within managed care systems while holding on to the traditions that make encounter groups such an effective means for change. 65 minutes

From watching this video, you'll be able to:
*Describe the most integral aspects of encounter groups that have remained relevant from the 1950s to the present.
*Discuss the early history of encounter groups and how they came about.
*Explain how encounter groups have changed over time, and how changes in the field during the last 20 years have posed significant challenges to running effective encounter groups.

Volume II: PITFALLS AND SOLUTIONS
Mullen walks us through several groups to show us what works and what does not work when facilitating an encounter group. He warns us of several traps facilitators can fall into: dominating the group, getting into power struggles, not being prepared or knowing the group members, and leading groups that are too large and don't go deep enough. Through numerous vignettes, he illustrates solutions to these common problems, and offers words of experience and wisdom to the encounter group facilitator: know your people, be prepared, get feedback, and listen, listen, listen! 75 minutes

From watching this video, you'll be able to:
*Implement strategies for breaking the we/they dichotomy between staff and group members.
*Explain why it is important for a facilitator to know the members of his or her group and what the dangers are if they don't.
*Compare the differences between large and small groups, the effectiveness of both, and ways to make them each work.

Volume III: KEYS TO FOSTERING GROWTH
Mullen discusses several key components to fostering growth and change in groups. He first explores the "marathon group" and how these day or weeklong sessions can bring participants into deeper understanding of themselves and what they need to change. He then discusses the importance of moral growth and ways in which facilitators can lead groups that foster moral growth by providing credible role models, healthy levels of conflict, role-reversal, and the teaching of responsibility. Finally, Mullen discusses the prevalence of PTSD among addicts and how encounter groups offer opportunities to heal from childhood abuse. 75 minutes

From watching this video, you'll be able to discuss:
*Describe ways marathon groups differ from regular encounter groups, the importance of them for group members, and different possibilities for doing them today.*
*Discuss the conditions a facilitator must create to foster moral growth within group members.
*Explain how PTSD increases a person's risk for abusing drugs, and how trauma can be worked through in encounter groups.

What prevents most people from being able to sustain romantic, meaningful relationships that satisfy their needs and desires? In this film, actual group participants identify negative thoughts or voices toward themselves and others that seriously impair their capacity for intimate relating. Dr. Robert Firestone helps them identify and understand this negative thought process, and challenge the self-defeating behavior patterns through the powerful technique of Voice Therapy.

Voice Therapy quickly taps into clients' core negative beliefs and combines insight with deep effect in a way that profoundly shifts clients' point of view toward self and others to a more compassionate and realistic perspective. By verbalizing their negative thoughts in the second person, clients are able to separate themselves from their harsh and hostile inner voices. Through the use of this technique and further collaboration with the therapist on resisting destructive acting out and increasing positive behavior, clients gain greater levels of intimacy in their relationships, experience a lift in their depression, and resist relapse into self-defeating behaviors.

From watching this video, you'll learn:
*What kinds of negative thoughts and beliefs people hold about themselves and their partners that impair or prevent them from intimate relating.
*Why Voice Therapy is an effective means for challenging the negative thoughts and voices.
*How to utilize a Voice Therapy approach with your own clients who are struggling in their relationships.

Although sexuality is one of the greatest pleasures in life and an opportunity for gratification and fulfillment, it can be complex, difficult, and sometimes even traumatic. Men and women are often confused about themselves as sexual beings and are vulnerable to distorted self-perceptions and destructive internal voices that have been incorporated during their developmental years.

This compelling film explores three fundamental questions: "What is healthy sexuality?" "What is love?" and "Why do so many men and women find it difficult to sustain closeness, sexuality and love in their intimate relationships?" Dr. Robert Firestone describes early childhood experiences and societal influences that impact an individual's emerging sexuality. These concepts are vividly brought to life as actual couples explore their sexual and relational dynamics, and identify destructive thoughts and critical voices that often occur before, during or after a sexual experience. Finally, the film introduces clinicians to Voice Therapy, a powerful approach that they can use to help clients challenge the voices that interfere with healthy sexual relating and sustain a relationship that combines true intimacy and sexuality.

From watching this video, you'll learn:
*What love and sexuality mean to several different couples.
*Why distorted sexual perceptions often interfere with relationships.
*How to help couples challenge internal destructive voices regarding their sexuality and help them build true intimacy with their partners.

"Our diversity as a profession... is not a weakness that needs to be cured with evidence-based practice. It's a strength and it needs to be nurtured with outcome-informed measures." Scott Miller, PhD

What works in psychotherapy? In this interview by Randall C. Wyatt, Miller shares everything he knows about psychotherapy outcomes. For starters, it's the therapeutic alliance that's one of the most important elements. And here's the real ticker - Miller has found that the therapist is the determining factor, not the treatment model. This means that therapists can learn, grow and be more effective with their clients by systematically monitoring therapy outcomes, inviting negative feedback, and asking the simple question that so often seems too difficult for therapists to ask: "How is this working for you?"

Miller warns against manualized systems that require therapists to narrowly work in a particular model, citing research that shows that therapists are the most effective when they are allowed to practice what they believe and are confident in. This means you don't need to change your modality to be more effective, and, in fact, can have a meaningful evidence-based practice by adapting some of Miller's simple tools to invite client feedback.

From watching this video, you'll learn:
*What factors determine positive and negative outcomes in psychotherapy.
*How to be the most effective therapist with all your clients by learning to monitor outcomes.
*When the most important times to intervene are, and how therapy approaches vary depending on the client's own stage of change.

Jeffrey Kottler showcases his expert skills in integrating multiple therapy approaches in an actual counseling session in this three-part video.

What Jeffrey Kottler has noticed in his vast training in multiple theoretical perspectives is that all kinds of therapy work. Good therapy is when the therapist engages the client and combines certain core ingredients including a combination of insight and action, and cognition and affect.

You'll be impressed by how quickly he makes a connection with her and uses this alliance to allow his interventions to take root. Creatively pulling techniques from a variety of approaches, and even using humor, he helps her develop a new focus on how she can bridge her loneliness by reaching out to people in new ways. Jon Carlson and Diane Kjos introduce Kottler and facilitate a discussion on the approach.

*Discuss the essential elements of what Kottler views as good therapy, including focusing on the relationship, listening, creating a place for catharsis, activating emotion, and providing insight and structure for taking action.

Insoo Kim Berg's unique style and unwavering optimism comes to life in this demonstration of Solution-Focused Family Therapy. Children and teenagers are all too often the scapegoat to a family's troubles and the impetus for a family to enter therapy. In this video, Insoo Kim Berg shows us how to help a family come together as a whole to build on their strengths and collaborate on solutions.

Berg demonstrates her approach in two therapy sessions with a family.

Sarah is sick of her mother nagging her and of the tense atmosphere at home. Lou is struggling with unemployment and admits that the family doesn't laugh anymore. Berg uses techniques to reconnect this family so that they can build on what has brought them together in the past and hear laughter in the home again.

Dr. Asante is recognized as one of the most creative and important liberatory African American scholars.

This sets up an "us vs. them" system rather than a "we" relationship. Counseling students will learn how to think about hegemony and power in the interview. We want students and clients owning knowledge and gaining agency. This presentation leads us all to empowerment, and responsibility.

The founder of Positive Psychology, Martin Seligman, PhD, introduces Positive Psychotherapy.

In this landmark interview by Randall C. Wyatt, Seligman emphasizes that happiness is not just the absence of disorder, as "psychology as usual" might contend. Rather, happiness derives from an execution of our signature strengths. Seligman demonstrates a new set of rigorously tested interventions that lastingly increase happiness while decreasing depression.

Dr. Seligman discusses his predecessors Maslow, Rogers, and Beck, what he took from them, and what he changed. He proposes new questions like, "What was the best experience you ever had?" And he explains how easy, enormously fun and important techniques can be grafted on to therapy with all clients to help them live a more engaged, meaningful, and thus happier life.

After watching this lively, personally revealing conversation, you'll be eager to apply these innovative ideas to your psychotherapy practice!

From watching this video, you will:
*See how Positive Psychotherapy incorporates the tenets of Positive Psychology including learned optimism, authentic happiness, meaningfulness, gratitude visits, and signature strengths.
*Learn to apply new techniques in your psychotherapy work with clients to increase their happiness and well-being.
*Understand the importance in psychotherapy of both getting rid of disorder and creating sustainable happiness.

"After years and years of working in this and grappling with this, the conclusion that many of us are coming to is that in order to help these animal, frozen, inappropriate, fight / flight / freeze responses to come to an end, you need to work with people's bodily responses. You need to help their body to feel like it's over." Bessel van der Kolk, MD

Over the past several years, many therapists have found that working with clients to identify where and how they hold trauma in their body and helping them to release it can be far more effective than traditional talk therapy alone. They've learned that somatic approaches can help trauma survivors to befriend their body, which they so often have come to see as the enemy.

In this three-part series, researchers and clinicians share their perspectives on the nature of trauma, including recent research on heart rate variability and the role of the social engagement system. They describe trauma's impact on mind and body, and the most effective tools for helping clients heal. Presenters demonstrate a variety of somatic techniques in excerpts from model therapy sessions. Body-oriented practices such as yoga and Impact Model Mugging are discussed, and ways of working with at-risk children and survivors of war and natural disasters are shown.

Presenters include Bessel van der Kolk, Peter Levine, Pat Ogden, Bill Bowen, Janina Fisher, and Stephen Porges.

Derald Wing Sue is Professor of Psychology and Education, Teachers College, Columbia University. Enhance your students' classroom learning experience with these seven 60-minute training DVDs by Derald Wing Sue. These programs cover multicultural counseling and therapy as discussed in the new edition of Counseling the Culturally Diverse by Derald Wing and David Sue.

DVD 1: EMOTIONAL ROADBLOCKS TO COUNSELING THE CULTURALLY DIVERSE:
A conversation with Drs. Mark Kiselica and Derald Wing Sue
Emotional roadblocks often arise when issues of race, culture, ethnicity are met by helping professionals. Drs. Kisela and Sue describe their racial/cultural awakening as a White person and a Person of Color and share personal experiences with racism, bigotry and bias. Dr. Kiselica courageously describes his defensive reactions to reading the text as a doctoral student, his anger at Sue for attacking the mental health professions as being harmful to marginalized groups, and his final painful realization that he had inherited racist attitudes and beliefs. Dr. Sue describes early experiences of prejudice and discrimination in childhood, lessons and insights learned as a result of being different in a monocultural society, and the constant feeling that current psychology did not reflect his experiential reality which led to the writing of his best-selling book. Specific suggestions are given about what students must do to overcome their own racist cultural conditioning in order to be a culturally competent citizen and helping professional.

DVD 2: CULTURAL COMPETENCE IN THE HELPING PROFESSIONS
What is cultural competence? What is multicultural counseling and therapy? Is there any difference between counseling a White client as opposed to a Black one? What do we mean by multiculturalism? Does it include gender, sexual orientation, class, religion and other sociodemographic groups? This DVD answers these questions and more-students will learn key basics for practice and the deeper meanings of identity development.

DVD 3: RACIAL MICROAGGRESSIONS: Impact and Implications for Counseling Practice
Is it possible for anyone to be born and raised in the United States without inheriting the racial biases of the society? How is it possible for good, moral and decent human beings to act in ways that oppress others? Do I oppress?

Derald Wing Sue presents his most recent research on racial microaggressions; brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral and environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults to the target person or group. While the lecture concentrates on racial microaggressions, Sue links the phenomenon to gender and sexual orientation microaggressions as well. Therapists who are unaware of their biases and prejudices may unintentionally engage in microaggressions that create impasses for clients of color.

DVD 4: OVERCOMING BARRIERS TO EFFECTIVE MULTICULTURAL COUNSELING / THERAPY
Why do people of color, Gays/Lesbians, and other marginalized groups often assert that counseling and psychotherapy are unhelpful? And why do they underutilize traditional mental health services and prematurely terminate after only one contact with a helping professional? Derald Wing Sue takes viewers on a journey to explore the culture-bound, class-bound and linguistic biases of traditional forms of counseling and psychotherapy.

DVD 5: MULTICULTURAL COUNSELING / THERAPY: Culturally Appropriate Intervention Strategies
Isn't good counseling, good counseling? Do I need to change my helping style when working with clients of color? In this engrossing presentation filled with case examples, Derald Wing Sue illustrates how a Western European approach to counseling may lead to mistaken assessment, diagnosis and treatment of culturally diverse clients

DVD 6: RACIAL / CULTURAL IDENTIFY DEVELOPMENT: Implications for Counseling/Therapy
Sue uses his "Racial/Cultural Identity Development Model" as a conceptual framework to aid therapists in understanding their culturally diverse clients' attitudes and behaviors. The model defines five stages of development that oppressed people experience as they struggle to understand themselves in terms of their own culture, the dominant culture, and the oppressive relationship between the two cultures. Implications for counseling culturally diverse clients are given for each level of identity.

DVD 7: WHITE RACIAL IDENTITY DEVELOPMENT: Implications for Counseling/Therapy
What does it mean to be White? Aren't we all just human beings? As a White person, why do I feel so uncomfortable and conflicted about racial issues? Is there really something called "White Privilege"? Derald Wing Sue describes how White racial identity awareness is correlated with lower levels of racism and higher levels of multicultural competence. The most desirable outcome is one in which the White person not only accepts his or her Whiteness but also defines it in a nondefensive and nonracist manner.

Designated as one of America's best physicians for seven years, Dr. John Ratey, M.D., Harvard Medical School, explains what is currently known about neuroscience and the brain. Aimed at mental health workers he describes the importance of brain plasticity and how clients can learn new thoughts, feelings, and behaviors during a therapy session, and develop new neural networks as a result. Perceptual, attentional, and motor systems are basic to memory and emotion. Dr. Ratey describes the "social brain" that is deeply impacted by learning and environmental conditions. He presents specifics for counselors on improving the brain functioning of clients. Essential for professionals and students of mental health.

All too often dignity is crushed by the terrible things people do to each other. These five therapists have a different story to tell about clients who have experienced violence, trauma, grief and loss. The human spirit is greater than the labels of "victim" or "survivor". These stories illustrate how resilience, growth and wisdom can arise in the face of suffering.

The therapists describe how they are educated by their clients' courage and informed by the culture and values of their community. Useful therapeutic questions and steps are described and illustrated by clinical example. In-depth theory is provided through articles by the therapists in the accompanying manual.

The therapists are:
Makungu Akinyela ­ Decatur, GA, USA
Tonya Gomes - Vancouver, BC, Canada
Imelda McCarthy ­ Dublin, Ireland
Richard Tedeschi ­ Charlotte, NC, USA
Allan Wade ­ Duncan, BC, Canada

*Includes a 72 page manual with articles by the therapists.

This program will be of interest to:

* women¹s transition house workers
* victim services workers
* the criminal justice system

For therapists new to trauma work, you will see how mature practitioners have developed their approach. For seasoned therapists, the creativity and ingenuity of these five remarkable practitioners will energize and inspire you.

"When a child has a poor attachment to their parent, it leads to all kinds of problems, because they have not learned how to regulate their emotions, they have not learned self-control, they have not learned self-reliance in a positive way. So all these problems come out in every other relationship in their life." Alexandra Cook, PhD
A secure attachment system forms the foundation for a child's development. The often devastating impact of attachment disorder on children's sense of self, and on their capacity to form attachments with new caregivers, can pose major challenges for foster and adoptive parents, as well as for therapists and group home staff.


In this four-video series, the presenters describe the impact of attachment disorder on the ways that children see themselves and interact with others, and how adults can respond most effectively. They explore such topics as setting limits, avoiding power struggles, providing structure, and building a trusting relationship. Their observations are reinforced by the accounts of foster and adoptive parents, group home staff, and former foster children. The presenters emphasize the importance of understanding what drives children's behaviors, rather than simply reacting to them, and provide concrete suggestions for containing negative behaviors and improving adult-child interactions.


The four programs are:

"You can tell them that you love them, you can tell them that you're going to keep them safe, you can tell them all these things, but it takes them years to really believe that that's actually what you're doing. They have no trust. They can't trust themselves, let alone trust anybody else." Denise, Adoptive Mother

"In order to create attachment with a child, the staff have to be safe. You're not going to have access to them unless you present in a way that appears to them safe. So you cannot create an attachment with the kids unless you're aware of your own self-care. " Frank Grijalva, Residential Care Consultant

Vivienne Roseby, PhD

Kinniburgh, Kristine, & Blaustein, Margaret. Attachment, Self-Regulation, and Competency (ARC): A Comprehensive Framework for Intervention with Complexly Traumatized Youth, Psychiatric Annals, 35(5), 2005, p. 424-430. The Attachment, Self-Regulation, and Competency (ARC) model provides a component-based framework for intervention, and is grounded in theory and empirical knowledge about the effects of trauma. It emphasizes the importance of understanding and intervening with the child-in-context, with a philosophy that systemic change leads to effective and sustainable outcomes.
Chapter 6, "Reparenting the Hurt Child", from Richard Kagan's book, Rebuilding Attachments with Traumatized Children: Healing from Losses, Violence, Abuse, and Neglect (Haworth Press, 2004), discusses community support, countertransference, misbehavior, developing trust, giving directions, choices and consequences, life skills, affect management, matching children and families, reality-based expectations, and psychotropic medications.
Vivienne Roseby's checklist for parents, "The Two Step For Managing Limits, Disappointments and Other Upsets: Relate And Contain," discusses noticing your child, opening up and being available, verbalizing the limits, and enfolding with safety.
