Counseling and Therapy in Video Volume III spans nearly thirty years of evolving counseling theory and practice. It features classic films from the “giants” of counseling and psychotherapy, such as Viktor Frankl, Albert Bandura, Albert Ellis, Aaron Beck, and Jay Haley, whose theoretical models shape contemporary views of counseling. The earliest film in the collection, The Role of the Therapist, The Role of the Client, is a panel discussion from 1985 featuring Virginia Satir, Carl Rogers, Rollo May, and Thomas Szasz, early psychotherapy pioneers whose work left an enduring legacy.
The collection juxtaposes this rich and vibrant history with an examination of contemporary and future directions for counseling and therapy. Titles cover a range of cutting-edge topics (social media, cyber-bullying, mindfulness, and neuroscience) and training in areas commonly encountered in today’s therapy environment (veterans, eating disorders, autism).
