In this interview by Randall C. Wyatt, Dr. Seligman emphasizes that happiness is not just the absence of disorder, as "psychology as usual" might contend.

Seligman demonstrates a new set of rigorously tested interventions that lastingly increase happiness while decreasing depression. Seligman discusses his predecessors Maslow, Rogers, and Beck, what he took from them, and what he changed. He proposes new questions and explains how easy, enormously fun and important techniques can be grafted on to therapy with all clients to help them live a more engaged, meaningful, and thus happier life

Extensive commentary and pre- and post-session interviews help viewers understand the strategies and guiding principles of MI. You will learn MI strategies that are useful with clients stuck in ambivalence; recognize the difference between sustain talk and change talk; and identify specific techniques used to reinforce change talk and move toward a change plan.

Multicultural competence in counseling & psychotherapy( Visual )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How can therapists work most effectively with clients from different cultural backgrounds? Despite the rise in cross-cultural training, many clinicians are still mystified about how to actually integrate multicultural issues and interventions into their work with clients. In this conversation between Victor Yalom and Derald Wing Sue - the renowned psychologist who literally wrote the book on multicultural counseling - we learn about the origins of Sue's research, the ways in which conventional practice has both neglected and harmed clients of color, and clinical practices and interventions that all therapists can use to become more culturally aware and competent. Multicultural counseling, says Sue, is the development of cultural competence with minority groups - yet this seemingly simple idea has represented a complex, and controversial, paradigm shift in the field. In his experience first as a student and later as a new clinician, Sue discovered that not only were members of minority groups failing to take advantage of psychotherapy, but those who did didn't last. He sought to find out why, and his answers became the foundation for the thought-provoking theories on race and clinical practice that have been cited for more than three decades. Culture- and class-bound values, white privilege, and implicit bias are just a few of the factors Sue addresses here. Inappropriate at best and oppressive at worst, therapeutic interventions based on these factors serve to pathologize difference, alienate minority clients, and erode the therapeutic alliance. Sue describes these phenomena in detail, along with an overview of microagressions, developing multicultural competence, and his unique training program designed to immerse students in diverse cultures. If you're looking to deepen your knowledge of cross-cultural concepts or want to see them presented by their originator, watch this interview for eye-opening insights and tools you can start using right away." resources to inspire therapists( Visual )

The therapeutic relationship, individualized treatment and other keys to successful psychotherapy( Visual )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this compelling interview with one of the most prominent psychotherapy researchers of our time, Dr. John Norcross presents the results from fourteen meta-analyses that reveal the secrets to successful therapy. Challenging the predominant view that manualized treatment methods are the gold standard for effective psychotherapy, Norcross shares empirical research that leads him to argue for a "middle path" that says it is both the treatment method and the therapeutic relationship that make the difference. Norcross discusses the scientific evidence that the relationship between therapist and patient accounts for success more than we may have realized. From how to cultivate the "person of the therapist," to the importance of prizing the patient's perspective, Norcross answers the timeless question: What makes for a great therapist?"--Container
