Dr. Yapko reviews the psychotherapeutic interactions that often lead to a diagnosis of childhood sexual abuse and enumerates various therapeutic pitfalls. Michael Yapko, Ph. D., is a clinical psychologist and author of Trancework and Suggestions of Abuse: True and False Memories of Childhood Sexual Trauma

He then presents methods for self-analysis and therapy.Dr. Ellis discusses and demonstrates the modeling approach, the use of humor, the use of cognitive homework, unconditional acceptance of clients, the use of strong language and dealing with low frustration tolerance. In a moving manner, he also describes the application of these principles in his own life experience. (A program in two parts)Born in 1913, Albert Ellis, Ph.D., is one of the most influential figures in the history of psychology. He is author of over 600 academic papers and more than 50 books including A Guide to Rational Living, How to Live with a Neurotic, Humanistic Psychotherapy, The Art and Science of Love and Sex Without Guilt. Dr. Ellis is considered the grandfather of cognitive behavior therapy, the founder of Rational-Emotive Therapy (RET) and one of the architects of the sexual revolution
Psychodynamics of liberation by Kathleen Riordan Speeth( Visual )

3 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Underneath the apparent separation of individuals there is a level of unity and interconnectedness. True liberation, suggests Kathleen Speeth, involves attaining an awareness of this level. In Part I of this program, Dr. Speeth enters into an intensive dialogue on the nature and meaning of liberation as viewed in both eastern and western traditions. In Part II, Dr. Speeth focuses on our tendency to sabotage ourselves -- to act against our own best interests. She maintains that a distinction can be drawn between inner weaknesses for which we may forgive ourselves and those inner criminal impulses toward which we must remain forever vigilant. Kathleen Speeth, Ph. D., is a clinical psychologist and co-editor (with Daniel Goleman) of The Essential Psychologies. She is author of The Gurdjieff Work and Gurdjieff: Seeker After Truth. She is a faculty member of the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology in Menlo Park, California
Approaches to consciousness( Visual )

4 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of four interviews conducted by Jeffrey Mishlove on problems of consciousness. Robert Ornstein suggests that the mind is composed of many subroutines that he refers to as a "squadron of simpletons." Self-mastery requires orchestrating these "simpletons" to work as a team. "The nervous system and the soul" deals with the dramatic, musical and mathematical qualities of the soul as they are available even to the mentally retarded and those with other neurological defects. Oliver Sacks maintains that our conventional view of awareness keeps us from appreciating the unique talents of those with Tourette's syndrome and other disorders. Arnold Mindell discusses the unique methods he has developed for working with individuals in comatose states. Using the techniques of "process psychology" he is able to find channels into the minds of comatose individuals that allow him to establish communication. Irvin D. Yalom discusses his novel When Nietzsche wept, which highlights the existential issues of human consciousness which are the basis of his own therapeutic approach. The soul-searching self-examination of the philosopher Nietzsche is contrasted with the methodical approach of Joseph Breuer, a renowned physician and pioneer psychotherapist

Suggesting that dreams afford us an opportunity to face our inner fears, in the hour-long second part of this program, she discusses the question of spiritual experiences in dreams and talks about the dreams of various gurus and spiritual teachers. She amplifies on the details of her dream interviewing method and demonstrates the method by working with Jeffrey Mishlove to interpret one of his dreams. Gayle Delaney, Ph. D., is the founding president of the Association for the Study of Dreams.
