INTEGRATIVE BEHAVIORAL COUPLE THERAPY WITH GAY MEN

With Christopher R. Martell, PhD, ABPP

Like heterosexual couples, gay male couples experience issues that may test their relationships. However, gay couples must also deal with additional challenges that are unique to their culture in the context of a heterosexual-majority society, such as discrimination within their communities and work places as well as ostracism from friends or family members. It is essential that the therapist who counsels gay male couples be cognizant of these unique challenges without focusing exclusively on their clients' sexual orientation.

In this video, Dr. Christopher Martell uses integrative behavioral couple therapy to work with an African American gay male couple who are deeply concerned about the current state of their relationship and their overall safety in a community that can be hostile to and may discriminate against gay men.

BEHAVIORAL EMERGENCIES

With Phillip M. Kleespies, PhD

A behavioral emergency is defined as a situation in which a client presents as being at imminent risk of behaving in a way that could result in serious harm or death to self or others. Discerning a behavioral emergency requires careful evaluation. Once an evaluation uncovers an imminent risk, therapists are required to respond immediately to prevent any harm from occurring.

The teaching examples presented in this video illustrate a course of action for swift and thoughtful decision-making in a stressful situation, demonstrate how to cope with stress that may result from such situations, and help distinguish a behavioral emergency from a behavioral crisis.

In this video Dr. Phillip Kleespies evaluates and manages a behavioral crisis that could develop into an emergency if not given appropriate clinical attention with a middle-aged man who is considering suicide.

This video features a client portrayed by an actor on the basis of a composite of case details.

COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY FOR OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE DISORDER

With Eric A. Storch, PhD

ObsessiveˇVcompulsive disorder (OCD) is characterized by unwanted, distressing and repeated thoughts and images that lead to compulsive actions. In the past, OCD was considered a complex disorder that was challenging to diagnose and effectively treat. More recently, there has been substantial progress in terms of both treating and assessing this once illusive disorder.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with exposure and response prevention is an evidence-based approach to treating OCD that encourages the client to be gradually and systematically exposed to the distress provoking trigger without engaging in rituals. This video features a discussion and demonstration of this proven CBT technique that involves first exposing the client to fear-producing stimuli and then encouraging the client to refrain from engaging in compulsive behaviors.

In this video, Dr. Eric Storch takes an active role in encouraging and directing a female client to help prevent habitual obsessive-compulsive responses to her fear of contamination.

MINDFULNESS FOR WELL-BEING

With Rezvan Ameli, PhD

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 may help 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.

NARRATIVE PROCESSES IN EMOTION-FOCUSED THERAPY FOR TRAUMA

With Lynne Angus, PhD, CPsych, and Sandra C. Paivio, PhD, Cpsych

Emotion-focused therapy for trauma (EFTT) is an evidence-based, short-term therapy for clients dealing with issues stemming from child abuse trauma. Unique challenges are associated with this form of trauma, including emotion regulation difficulties and narratives devoid of affect or personal meaning.

Narrative processes in EFTT focus not only on the content but the quality of client narratives ˇX that is, how a client recounts his or her experiences. Therapists trained in this approach pay attention to the presence and type of affective experience, level of emotional arousal and engagement with trauma material, and narrative coherence. Narrative process interventions access healthy sub-dominant aspects of the client's experience and use these to promote construction of more detailed and meaningful narratives.

In this video, Drs. Lynne Angus and Sandra C. Paivio demonstrate and discuss key therapeutic interventions that encourage and direct a client through narrative and emotion-focused processes to gain acceptance and clarity on unresolved issues.

CASE FORMULATION IN PSYCHOTHERAPY

With Tracy D. Eells, PhD

How does a therapist know what to do next during a session? One key method for determining what to do in therapy is case formulation, a systematic process for developing hypotheses about and plans to address the causes and precipitants of a client's presenting problems.

Dr. Tracy Eells presents an evidence-based, integrative method of psychotherapy case formulation that can be adapted to single-theory approaches to therapy, any specific treatment manual, or any component of a theory or manual. This pragmatic case formulation model works for simple and straightforward cases as well as those involving many problems in many spheres of life.

In this video, Dr. Eells explains his case formulation model, works with a client in a therapy demonstration, then uses examples from the demonstration to illustrate how to apply his case formulation model.

INTEGRATING MINDFULNESS INTO COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY

By Ronald D. Siegel

What is "mindfulness" and how can we actually use it with our clients? Understand the principles of mindfulness-oriented psychotherapy and its application for a range of clinical issues in this new video with mindfulness expert Dr. Ronald D. Siegel.

As a mindfulness-oriented clinician, Ronald Siegel encourages us to help clients "befriend" their inner experiences rather than fight themˇXand even their resistance can be similarly identified and approached with acceptance. Siegel defines mindfulness as "the awareness of one's unfolding moment-to-moment experience with acceptance"; this attitude also characterizes the mindful approach to psychotherapy, which Siegel illustrates repeatedly throughout this informative video.

You'll see how the somatic elements of mindfulness support treatment for issues ranging from anxiety to chronic pain to childhood trauma, and you'll watch Siegel debrief with Victor Yalom after every session.

Addressing the various types of mindfulness practices available and their respective uses, formal meditation vs. mindfulness, and how mindfulness can inform both our personal lives and our relationship to our clients, Siegel offers much to chew on in this definitive video. Be sure to add this one to your library today.

By watching this video, you will:
~ Understand what mindfulness is, and how the therapeutic approach differs from formal meditation.
~ Discover tools and practices to use with clients exhibiting a range of clinical issues.

PHIL ZIMBARDO ON THE STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT, EVIL AND HEROISM

By Philip Zimbardo

In 1971, Dr. Philip Zimbardo led the notorious Stanford Prison Experiment in order to answer the question, "What happens when you put good people in an evil place?" In this interview with Victor Yalom, Zimbardo speaks in-depth on the study, its lessons, and its relationship to Abu Ghraib decades later.

Over the course of the interview, Zimbardo describes the arc of the controversial study, with lively storytelling that fascinates even as it counfounds. He goes on to outline the rise and fall of the experiment, the participants' parents ultimate compliance during its run, and his own internalization of the "prison super" role (only made apparent to him upon his then-girlfriend's threat to end their relationship). He then extrapolates his findings to the more recent Abu Ghraib trials, where he was involved in examining the systemic torture proliferating among the unsupervised guards.

Zimbardo's discoveries remain relevant in the age of widespread police brutality charges, an increasingly divided government, and international political strife. You'll find many compelling ideas to consider from his work, so be sure to take a look at this ever-timely interview.

By watching this video, you will:
~ Learn about the guiding principles and methodology of the Stanford Prison Experiment.
~ Understand Zimbardo's findings from the study, including thoughts on corruption and compliance.
~ Learn more about what constitutes "heroism," according to Zimbardo's more recent research.

GROUP DYNAMICS AND THE NEW HEROISM: THE ETHICAL ALTERNATIVE TO THE STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT

By Phil Zimbardo and Bill Roller

GROUP DYNAMICS AND THE NEW HEROISM is a six hour video series which captures the unscripted, spontaneous group process of eight individuals as they learn how to work together and form groups that will help motivate and sustain the courageous actions they wish to pursue.

This film tracks them as they obey their conscience and act in concert with each other. The viewer can follow the steps of the group as they organize themselves to act courageously and nonviolently for an ethical cause—then see them carry their project to fulfillment. We supply commentaries to help viewers follow the progress of the group.

Scapegoating was the primary dynamic in the Stanford Prison Experiment. But scapegoating is not the only way to create drama in a narrative. We present a dramatic story that is fresh and new—of people who resist scapegoating in all its guises, challenge unjust authority, and act in the public interest.

This film series will help people practice civil obedience to universal values enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the laws of the United States. It will guide viewers to act with respect for humanity, resist scapegoating of those who appear different, and activate the creative energy of nonconformity.

This film series is essential viewing for organizations dedicated to peace and justice who want to put their political and social thought to work in real life situations. College and university departments of social psychology, sociology, psychology, political science, anthropology, and other human sciences will find the format useful in creating classes that challenge and inspire students.
