The Otto Kernberg Series (2-Video Series)
If you think psychoanalytic theories and techniques are dated or even irrelevant, you'll be in for a surprise with these videos.  Kernberg, now in his 80s, shows how psychoanalysis has evolved. In both of these videos makes a strong case for assessment and treatment not being rooted in the past, but based on how the patient behaves in their current life, as well as how they present in the psychotherapy office. He is wise, grounded, animated, and decidedly practical in his approach.  Regardless of your orientation, you cannot helped but be enriched by spending some time with this master.

Otto Kernberg: Live Case Consultation
Useful, practical and well-produced, this video features Dr. Kernberg's typically acute insight into understanding and treating challenging patients. It would be helpful to residents and clinical psychologists who are learning to treat the demanding client (such as a traumatized incest survivor), as well as mid-career professionals who are looking for tips on how to conduct group supervision.

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy for Personality Disorders: An Interview with Otto Kernberg, MD
What makes this video an exemplary teaching tool is the way in which the interviewer, Dr. Terrence Owens, directs Dr. Kernberg, thus enabling the viewer to understand the foundations upon which Kernberg’s thinking is based. Kernberg provides a number of interesting surprises in this video, including an explanation of his use of Erikson’s theory of identity development, and clinical vignettes from his own experiences. I would highly recommend this video for graduate students as well as for experienced clinicians.
