Psychology - Psychotherapy

Psychology - Psychotherapy


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 Linda Carter Sobell, PhD, ABPP and Mark Sobell, PhD, ABPP

In Assessing Alcohol Problems Using Motivational Interviewing, Dr. Linda Sobell demonstrates cognitive-behavioral motivational interviewing techniques for assessing a patient's alcohol use, and then she and Dr. Mark Sobell discuss this useful approach for working with individuals with substance use disorders. Motivational interviewing is a client-centered, directive method for eliciting intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving a person's ambivalence to change using open-ended questions, reflective listening, and decisional balancing. This nonjudgmental, nonconfrontational interviewing style is designed to minimize a patient's resistance. The goal is to construct an interaction with patients so they feel comfortable discussing their risky or problem behavior.

In this session, Dr. Linda Sobell works with a young man with a history of problem drinking whose recent break-up with his girlfriend triggered increased risky alcohol use. Dr. Sobell assesses his readiness for change and then interviews him about triggers, behaviors, and cognitions associated with his drinking, emphasizing throughout that the patient has the choice to change, thereby empowering the patient.

With G. Alan Marlatt, PhD

In Cognitive-Behavioral Relapse Prevention for Addictions, Dr. G. Alan Marlatt demonstrates his approach to working with clients dealing with addictions or compulsive habits such as substance abuse, gambling, or sexual addiction. Cognitive-behavioral relapse prevention helps clients through the process of relapse recovery by focusing on cognitive, behavioral, and lifestyle choices that might be changed or reinforced to help the client prevent relapse. Central to this approach is the work of identifying relapse triggers and developing coping strategies. In this session, Dr. Marlatt works with a 41-year-old woman who has been abusing alcohol for a number of years and seeks help with quitting.

This DVD features a client portrayed by an actor on the basis of actual case material.

By Diane Gehart

Mindfulness is a rapidly expanding area of psychotherapy practice, but most approaches teach mindfulness in formal group settings. Although these groups are probably the ideal forum for learning mindfulness practice, many clients will not attend because of accessibility issues, time limitations, financial considerations, or simple disinterest in a group. In this video, Dr. Diane Gehart demonstrates how to teach basic mindfulness breath meditation in a one-on-one therapy session. When teaching mindfulness individually or with couples and families, therapists must find a way to connect with the client's needs and motivations as well as the practical issues of when and how to practice. This video offers views a practical approach to collaboratively integrating mindfulness into everyday clinical practice.
