Broad-spectrum behavior therapy in a group ( visu )
3 editions published between 1969 and 2008 in English and held by 8 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 ( visu )
1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 5 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."
The brain damaged child ( visu )
1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The case of a seven-year-old child with a diagnosis of chronic organic brain syndrome is presented, with a focus on communication deficits related to the disorder. The child, Bobby, and the psychiatrist, Dr. Margaret Dealy Griffel, are interviewed. The program notes that Bobby is one of four boys to be filmed under similar circumstances to differentiate certain psychiatric syndromes seen in childhood. The physical manifestations of organic brain syndrome are observed to result from disruption of perceptual thought organization and spatial arranging, seen not only in body activity but also in the organization of the ego. Bobby's appearance, speech, intelligence, affect, motor behavior, capacity to relate, reality-testing and thought-life are discussed as he plays with toys and clay and attempts to assemble a toy figure of some sort. According to Dr. Griffel, Bobby demonstrates mild to moderate hypermobility, distractibility, hyperreactiveness, disinhibition, awkwardness of body movement, toe-walking, and difficulties with visual-motor coordination. At times he recognizes his difficulties and either denies or responds to them with regressiveness and resentment. Sibling rivalry and castration anxiety present in all children of this age are heightened by the brain damage

The Normal child ( visu )
1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The purpose of this program is to present a normal six year old child, Carl, to observe certain aspects of communication. This objective is achieved in an interview with Carl and the psychiatrist, Dr. Margaret Dealy Griffel. Comments about the communication are interjected and summarized during the interview, and a summation by Dr. Griffel is made at the conclusion of the program. The presentation notes that this program is filmed in similar circumstances as those filmed with children having different psychiatric syndromes to sharpen the differences to be noted. According to this program a child is considered normal who can interact positively with his environment and can evaluate and respond to gratifications, frustrations and challenges in a realistic and flexible manner according to his age. Carl is introduced and his appearance, speech, intelligence, affect, motor behavior, capacity to relate, reality testing and thought life are all illustratedas he plays with toys and clay. Dr. Griffel notes that although Carl is not a boy without problems he demonstrates an ability to deal with them constructively
The Neurotic child ( visu )
1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The purpose of this program is to present a seven year old boy with a diagnosis of psychoneurotic anxiety reaction to observe certain aspects of communication associated with this disorder. The program notes that this is one of four psychiatric syndromes seen in childhood. This objective is achieved in an interview with the child and the psychiatrist, Dr. Margaret Dealy Griffel. She adds comments during the interview and summarizes the communication shown at the conclusion of the program. In this presentation Alan is introduced first. According to Dr. Griffel, Alan has a conflict over becoming big which he has been unable to resolve. His appearance, speech, intelligence and motor behavior have developed normally, but his neurosis is manifest in defective functioning of reality testing, affect, thought life, capacity to relate and capacity to resolve problems constructively. He continually strives unsuccessfully to control aggression. This results ina high level of anxiety, and in the great use of phantasy. Under Dr. Griffel's questioning Alan displays these symptoms in his answers to question and in his play with the clay and toys. Dr. Griffel notes that while Alan's neurotic solutionsto his problems may be optimum for him, they limit his flexibility, mobility, capacity to express himself, to relate, to grow and to mature

This objective is achieved in an interview with the child, Sidney, and the psychiatrist, Dr. Margaret Dealy Griffel. She interjects comments during the interview and at the conclusion of the program to explain the communication shown. The program notes that Sidney is one of four boys to be filmed under similar circumstances to differentiate the psychiatric syndromes seen in childhood.

The inappropriate involvement and vacillation typical of childhood psychosis is demonstrated.
