With Dolores Gallagher-Thompson, PhD, ABPP

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.

The way we make assessments about many people every day is by looking at their face. Faces tell us basic information such as gender, approximate age and possible ethnicity. But we also learn to read faces to gather clues about what sort of person someone is or how they might be feeling. But how do we do this and why do some people suffer prosopagnosia - or the inability to recognize faces? This film explores the fascinating topic of face recognition, including recognizing faces, reading faces and the Bruce-Young model, and blindness to faces. This program is an excellent resource for students of Psychology.

With Lillian Comas-Diaz, PhD

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-Diaz works with an African American woman who is making a decision about dating a partner outside of her own culture. Dr. Comas-Diaz 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.

With Scott Browning, PhD

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.

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 Diana Fosha, PhD

Accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy (AEDP) is both a theory of transformational process and a model of psychotherapy with three fundamental elements

  • attachment
  • emotion processing
  • 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.

    With Clara E. Hill, PhD

    In this DVD, Clara E. Hill 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.

    By Marsha Linehan

    Watch Marsha Linehan, founder of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), in action in this session with a middle-aged man with a significant personality disorder struggling with suicidal depression and anger after being left by his girlfriend.

    Perhaps no therapist of the last several decades has so influenced current practice as Marsha Linehan. Though she does a great deal of teaching and training, opportunities to see her practicing with a client in a full-length session are few and far between. Therapists, DBT practitioners, and newcomers alike will relish this rare opportunity.

    In this initial session, Linehan works with a fascinating and difficult client. He makes it clear that he is actively suicidal, has little faith in therapy, and is not necessarily committed to treatment. He bobs and weaves as Linehan works with him, concealing some of the most damaging aspects of his own past behaviors and painting himself as an angry and wounded victim. With her upfront and frank style, Linehan defines the client's goals, makes clear to him which behaviors must change immediately, and gets him to agree to postpone suicidality in favor of further investigating her treatment. Throughout the session, Linehan gives voiced-over explanations of why she made certain choices and what compelled her towards different interventions. Prepare to be fascinated, both by the client and by Linehan!

    By watching this video, you will learn:
  • How to conduct an initial behavioral assessment using DBT
  • How to implement elements of DBT style and strategy with your own clients
  • How a DBT therapist assesses for suicidality and obtains commitment to therapy
