Psychology - Anxiety and Sleepless

Psychology - Anxiety and Sleepless


Sleep - it's something we do every day, but why do we sleep and why are psychologists so interested in sleep? What happens if we don't sleep? Sleep has been the subject of extensive research over many years, and while our knowledge and understanding about sleep, and the role it plays in keeping us healthily alive, has advanced considerably over the past few decades, there is still much we don't know. This film examines sleep and why human beings do it, the four stages of sleep, and the causes and impact of not sleeping.

    With Ronald D. Siegel, PsyD

    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 Mindfulness for Anxiety, Dr. 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.

    With Bunmi O. Olatunji, PhD

    In Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Clients With Anxiety and Panic, Bunmi O. Olatunji demonstrates this effective and versatile approach to helping clients meaningfully change detrimental patterns in their thoughts and actions.

    Cognitive-behavioral therapy views anxiety as the result of maladaptive habits of thinking and behavior, usually including the tendency to overestimate the possibility of something negative occurring and to avoid that which produces anxiety. Studies have found that avoidance temporarily eases fear, but tends also to reinforce it so that it continues over time. To counter this, the therapist often will teach new ways of thinking and gradually expose the client to that which causes anxiety.

    In this session, Olatunji works with a young woman who is suffering from panic attacks. First he provides some psychoeducation about the purpose of fear and anxiety, and then helps her to see the irrational aspects of the rationalizations she makes for feeling the way she does.

    With Donald Meichenbaum, PhD

    Donald Meichenbaum expertly demonstrates his refined and renowned Cognitive-Behavioral approach in an actual therapy session in this 3-part program.

    Cognitive-behavioral therapy works with the interconnection between thoughts, feelings and behavior using psychoeducational techniques that target symptoms to help clients reach their specific goals. In this program, Meichenbaum demonstrates how to integrate seven key CBT tasks in a single therapy session with a woman who is struggling with severe anxiety and insomnia as the caretaker for her mentally ill father. Meichenbaum highlights the list of "shoulds" and self-criticisms she continually rotates through her mind, and through an exercise helps the client reveal some of the pain and anger that those self-criticisms mask. He offers techniques to help her curb her insomnia and educates her on how an ongoing therapy would help her heal past wounds and teach her to nurture herself. Jon Carlson and Diane Kjos introduce Meichenbaum and facilitate a discussion on his approach.

    By watching this counseling program, you'll be able to:

  • Understand the key elements and tasks that make up Meichenbaum's unique therapeutic approach.

    By Reid Wilson

    In these live sessions with a patient suffering from obsessive thinking, Reid Wilson demonstrates tools and techniques of cognitive therapy that clinicians can begin to apply immediately.

    With humor, compassion and impressive persistence, Wilson masterfully helps Rita do a 180 when it comes to how she's approaching her health anxiety. Challenging conventional wisdom about how to get better, Wilson's paradoxical approach to change is reminiscent of Buddhist teachings that talk about suffering coming from resistance. Urging her to want her symptoms as opposed to trying to get rid of them, he turns everything upside down, making for a fascinating and refreshing approach to anxiety disorders in particular and life in general.

    While kind and patient, Wilson is at times somewhat pushy and aggressive. On this aspect of his approach he says: "This method can be challenging to therapists who work in a less directive, more client-centered way. But these clients are really stuck in a faulty belief system. If we aren't aggressive in our tactics, then we are going to be at the work for a long time."

    If you're looking for a way to really make some inroads with your clients with anxiety disorders in a short period of time, this video is definitely for you.

    By watching this video, you will:
  • Learn the core concepts of Wilson's approach to treating anxiety disorders.
  • Understand how to conduct a highly focused assessment.
  • Identify tools for helping clients increase their tolerance of uncertainty and discomfort

    By Reid Wilson

    In these live sessions with a real patient, Reid Wilson demonstrates Exposure Therapy in action, offering a frame of reference that clinicians can begin to apply immediately.

    After watching these two remarkable sessions with a woman who is afraid of flying, you'll surely be wondering, "Well, how did the flight go?" (She was leaving for a flight right after her second session with Wilson). Without giving too much away, we're pleased to report that the work she did with Wilson in these two sessions made a huge difference, and she updated us that she managed without medication, didn't feel nearly as much panic as she usually does, and she was able to talk herself down fairly quickly when anxiety arose. She also shared that she was amazed by her progress and all that she was able to do. Pretty impressive for just two sessions! Once you see Wilson in action, you'll understand how to help your own clients make similar progress with their phobias.

    By watching this video you will:
  • Learn the core concepts of Wilson's approach to treating phobias
  • Understand how to conduct a highly focused assessment
  • Identify tools for facilitating habituation through exposure therapy techniques.
