"In this training video, anxiety disorder expert Reid Wilson demonstrates Exposure Therapy in two live sessions with a woman suffering from claustrophobia. Using the paradoxical principle that moving towards her fears is the key to her freedom, Wilson leads Mary through several experiments that give her the opportunity to face her fears of both suffocation and restriction, including breathing with a nose plug on; sliding a pillowcase over her head and sealing it with packing tape; and climbing into a large cardboard box. You will learn the core concepts of Wilson's approach to treating phobias; understand how to conduct a highly focused assessment; and identify tools for facilitating habituation through exposure therapy techniques. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions." - Supplied by publisher.
"This is an in-depth, intimate interview by Irvin's son, psychologist Victor Yalom, who perhaps knows his work better than anyone. Throughout the discussion you'll see how Yalom's ideas tie together. For example, you'll see how his emphasis on the here-and-now in his group psychotherapy model influenced his way of working in individual therapy, where again he found that attending closely to interactions in the session enlivens the therapist-client encounter, and sheds light on the client's interpersonal world. You'll follow the arc of Yalom's life and career, from his early interest in literature (inspired in part by his relationship and marriage with his wife Marilyn Yalom, herself an accomplished scholar and writer), to his early training as a psychiatrist, his first groups with breast cancer patients, and how he integrated ideas from existential philosophy into his work. You'll also learn about about Yalom's encounters with legends in the field such as Viktor Frankl, Rollo May, and Virginia Satir. This interview, part of the series Irvin Yalom and the Art of Psychotherapy, was published just weeks after Becoming Myself: A Psychiatrist's Memoir, and is a testament to Yalom's immense contribution to our field." - Supplied by publisher.
