The third volume of Alexander Street Press’ award-winning Counseling and Therapy in Video series features more than 300 additional hours of training videos, reenactments, and actual therapy sessions conducted by renowned counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, and clinicians. Volume III presents a firm grounding in the theoretical modalities of counseling and psychotherapy while expanding into new and emerging areas such as social media, veterans, cyberbullying, mindfulness, and neuroscience.

Content

This collection features the “giants” of counseling and psychotherapy such as Viktor Frankl, Albert Bandura, Albert Ellis, Aaron Beck, Virginia Satir, Jay Haley, and Carl Rogers, whose theoretical models shape the way we look at counseling today. The earliest film in the collection, The Role of the Therapist/The Role of the Client, a panel discussion from 1985, features Virginia Satir, Carl Rogers, Rollo May, and Thomas Szasz, early psychotherapy pioneers whose legacies live on. Adding to this list are contemporary “greats” such as Pat Love, Samuel Gladding, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Jon Carlson, Natalie Rogers, and John Arden.

Together, these films form a collection that emphasizes the evolution of the field, juxtaposing this history of counseling and psychotherapy with future directions by examining new techniques, methods, and research-informed practice. More than 55 titles were produced in 2012 and more than 40 are scheduled for production in 2013. Forthcoming titles will cover a range of emerging and cutting-edge topics (i.e., mindfulness, cyberbullying) and continuing training in topics counselors frequently encounter in today’s therapy environment (veterans and military families, eating disorders, autism, and Asperger syndrome).
