“A senior and skilled clinician introduces us to five patients with terminal or life-threatening illnesses. We learn about their experiences as they confront pain, the anticipation of death, the problems of treatment, the crises that emerge in intimate relationships, and their strategies for coping. We also learn how an expert understands these issues—and uses that understanding in helping patients cope more effectively. This is an invaluable educational tool for all who work with dying patients, and particularly for medical students, residents, and other psychiatrists who consult in general medical settings.”
-- Robert Michels, MD,  Professor of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College

“These outstanding videos are invaluable aids in the teaching of psychotherapy. Dr. Viederman demonstrates just how he approaches and explains patient suffering from loss and from physical illness. The major benefit is the opportunity that Viederman offers to see the patient in different ways and with different theories.”
-- Arnold Goldberg, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Rush Medical College; Training and Supervising Analyst, Institute for Psychoanalysis, Chicago

“One of American's most gifted psychotherapists, Professor Milton Viederman, has given us an opportunity to witness his science, art, and wisdom in establishing an effective therapeutic relationship with patients with severe medical illnesses. The therapeutic interventions that aid these patients highlight the role of brief psychotherapy and some of the key emotional processes and cognitive mechanisms that must be dealt with. Consideration of the psychodynamic aspects, meanings, and context of their lives is a critical part of the well-being of the patients and of good medical care. Powerful and moving, a stunning set of examples of the achievement of psychotherapy by a teacher's teacher.”
-- Jack  Barchas, MD, Psychiatrist-in-Chief, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York

Sinai Hospital in Toronto, Ontario, Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society for Liaison Psychiatry, the Robert Liebert Award in Applied Psychoanalysis, the Dr. Nathan Seidel Lecture on the Art of Medicine at the Beth Israel Hospital in Boston among others.

A psychodynamic perspective and an interest in the narrative structure of people's lives formed his Consultation-Liaison experience. Many of his publications address therapeutic change in the psychoanalytic situation and therapeutic possibilities during consultation. His recent publications include: George Seurat: A Life Divided, Active Engagement During the Consultation Process, Presence and Enactment in the process of Psychotherapeutic Change, The Uses of the Past and the Actualization of a Family Romance, Metaphor and Meaning in Conversion Disorder, The Therapeutic Consultation: Finding the Patient, and A Model for Interpretative Supportive Dynamic Psychotherapy.
