Assessment and Treatment of Psychological Disorders: 8-Video Series
While most training videos offer at most a single session of therapy, this series—widely acknowledged as some of the best psychotherapy training videos ever produced—offers full courses of treatment with experts in the field treating a variety of clients and issues. These re-enactments cover the arc of therapy so you can see how therapists change course over time, with expert commentary that describes both the over-arching theory of their approaches as well as their rationales for specific interventions.

In this series you'll see Donald Meichenbaum deftly guiding a client suffering with both anxiety and depression through a 12-session course of therapy, Hanna Levenson doing time limited dynamic psychotherapy with a a depressed, passive, and somatizing 74 year-old man, Monica McGoldrick doing family systems therapy with a family whose grief spans three generations, and one of our all time favorites, Erving Polster, doing Gestalt therapy with that difficult client so many of us have faced: bright, cynical, emotionally detached, overly-intellectual, and seemingly determined to defeat this therapist as he has previous ones. He doesn't succeed. You'll see feminist therapist Lenore Walker treat a victim of domestic abuse using the survivor therapy approach, with pivotal moments represented over their two-year course of therapy, Ron Levant  demonstrating key techniques of working with men in a society that encourages them to repress feelings, Susan Heitler do a masterful job of working with an angry, high-conflict couple, and finally, CBT expert Arthur Freeman illustrates the foundations and key techniques of cognitive therapy working with a man suffering from depression.

Trust us, you will not only learn a tremendous amount from these highly skilled masters, you will be entertained, delighted and disturbed along the way. You don't want to miss out on this collection. It's one of the best ever made!

The Legacy of Unresolved Loss
"The Legacy of Unresolved Loss has been my all time favorite video for my graduate students! It illustrates cultural issues, blended family issues, issues concerning death and dying, and it is a great resource for instructing students to develop genograms. By watching the course of therapy over time, students are able to see how therapeutic changes elicit changes in facial expressions, gestures, body posture, and vocal tones."
Lynn Banks, PsyD - Coordinator of MA in Counseling Webster University, Space Coast Branch

Psychotherapy with the Unmotivated Client
"Polster's video was riveting, leading to considerable class discussion. The encounter between therapist and client was often provocative and encouraged much lively class discussion and debate. As such, the video was particularly instructive and covered a broad range of sessions that allowed the viewer to witness client-therapist change and growth over time."
- Tom Mabee - PhD Adjunct Graduate Psychology Faculty, Nova Southeastern University, Florida

Time Limited Dynamic Psychotherapy
"Hanna Levenson's video of time-limited dynamic psychotherapy fills a longstanding void in the teaching and learning of brief therapy. Watching a sophisticated, knowledgeable, and compassionate therapist at work is a compelling experience that brings this important therapeutic mode to life. My students have found it to be an invaluable resource in understanding the theory and practice of brief, interpersonally-oriented psychotherapy."
- Stanley B. Messer, PhD, Professor and Chair, Department of Clinical Psychology, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers University
