by Donald Meichenbaum
In this video, internationally renowned therapist Donald Meichenbaum demonstrates a brief, effective approach for treating clients suffering from anxiety and depression.

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
