Cognitive–Behavioral Therapy for Clients With Multiple Problems
In Cognitive–Behavioral Therapy for Clients With Multiple Problems, Gayle Y. Iwamasa demonstrates this widely practiced, empirically supported approach.
Cognitive–behavioral therapy (CBT) considers thought, emotion, and behavior to be interrelated, and seeks to help clients monitor their cognition and actions so as to help improve their emotional health and life satisfaction. Unlike traditional psychotherapies, CBT is usually time-limited, and it focuses on development of a collaborative relationship between therapist and client to determine realistic goals for therapy and effective strategies for reaching those goals.
In this DVD, Dr. Iwamasa works with a young woman who is suffering from grief, anxiety, and depression, helping her to focus her energy on the most central issue in her life and develop ways to help change her thoughts, feelings, and behavior so that she feels more positive.
