Jung speaks of Freud ( Visual )

Psychologist C.G. Jung tells of his early and historic acquaintance with Sigmund Freud and why he became critical of Freudian psychology and broke away to found a rival school of his own. Jung says that, after conducting word association experiments whose results supported the theories advanced by Freud in The Interpretation of Dreams, he wrote to Freud, beginning their relationship. He explains how his knowledge of diverse cultures led him to conclude that Freud's theories of the ego, the id, the oedipal complex, and the importance of the sex drive, while valid, were too limited

Broad-spectrum behavior therapy in a group ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program presents a group therapy session which illustrates the use of broad-spectrum behavior therapy in a group. A brief description of this type of therapy precedes the group session. According to the program this type of behavior therapy draws many of its methods from experimental psychology and learning theory and transcends narrow stimulus-response techniques. The broad-spectrum behavior therapy teaches authenticity, self disclosure, empathy, and a way of life which includes social expressiveness. Although in some respects broad-spectrum behavior therapy overlaps with traditional group psychotherapy, it has some distinctive features. In broad-spectrum behavior therapy, the therapist sees himself as a teacher and clinician, and is very active in all the proceedings. The members of the group presented in the program fear criticism and disapproval. In the previous group session, each member is given the same assignment: to either take a behavior which was destructive and master it, or do something they know they should have but didn't. In the program they discuss their efforts to do the assignment. In the group emphasis is placed on handling feelings in an assertive rather than aggressive manner, and on transferring behavior learned in the group to situations outside the group. Systematic desentization to a situation in which they are to imagine that a hostess told a friend that they were unsociable at a party is demonstrated to help group members overcome their fears of criticism and disapproval

A Behavioral therapy demonstration ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program presents excerpts of interviews with a young woman and a therapist to illustrate some of the "major operations of behavior therapy." These major operations include a history of the major complaint, relaxation training, assertive training, and a systematic desensitization training. The young woman states that she is very nervous. She says that she is "completely calm and comfortable at home but is nervous around men." She works as a medical technologist but wouldprefer to be a kindergarten teacher. She also says that she didn't really like school - particularly getting up in front of a class. She states that she fears being the center of attention. She doesn't like criticism and responds very passively when someone does something she doesn't like. During the interview session, the therapist tries to bring about "action inside which will fight the anxiety." He instructs the woman in a series of exercises designed to have her experience what muscle tension and relaxation is like. These exercises involve systematically tensing and relaxing muscles in the hand, arm and head. The woman is then instructed to close her eyes and quantify on a scale of 100 how angry she would be under circumstances in which she and men of various different ages would be sitting in a football stadium together. At the end of the program, the young woman states that she feels calmer than she did at the beginning. The program concludes with remarks from the doctor which "help put the film in perspective."
