Clients seeking psychotherapy frequently suffer from both anxiety and depression, making treatment particularly challenging. In this video, internationally renowned therapist Donald Meichenbaum demonstrates a brief, effective approach for treating these comorbid disorders. Viewers follow a dramatic recreation of key moments in his 12-session course of therapy with Anna P., a 40-year-old woman who experiences recurrent bouts of panic in addition to a long history of depression.

What therapists are saying…

"Donald Meichenbaum, a leading figure in cognitive-behavioral therapy, convincingly demonstrates his treatment procedures with his usual charm and aplomb. Combining his clinical acumen with dedication to training, Meichenbaum carefully articulates a step-by-step approach that is informed not only by vast empirical research, but also by the increasingly popular constructive narrative perspective. A real winner!"

-- Leo Goldberger, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, New York University
