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. Rather, happiness derives from an execution of our signature strengths. 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

Integrating mindfulness into counseling and psychotherapy( Visual )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mindfulness" has been a tantalizing therapy buzzword for several years now, but what exactly is it? For many clinicians--not to mention clients and the general public--the concept is mystifying, despite its increasing mainstream popularity. Wonder no more with this comprehensive new video featuring Ronald D. Siegel, a longtime mindfulness-oriented psychotherapist and expert in the approach. Here, you'll discover how mindfulness differs from meditation, folds into treatment for a vast range of clinical issues, and supports our own personal and professional growth. Mindfulness is simultaneously a set of experiential practices and a philosophical stance, and Siegel demonstrates both in four sessions with very different clients. You'll watch Siegel promote a "felt sense of meaning" with Carl, a man in his sixties with past suicidal ideation and current financial stress. With Julia, a woman in her 20s grieving multiple deaths and suffering from anxiety, Siegel emphasizes the somatic element of mindfulness. Teaching her to track her moment-to-moment physical experience with acceptance rather than aversion, Siegel helps Julia reframe her anxiety as physical tension that she can begin to release with mindful awareness. You'll also watch Lorraine, a middle-aged woman with chronic back pain, benefit from Siegel's integrative knowledge to get in touch with her present-moment experience of fear, which may actually exacerbate her condition. Finally, you'll observe Mac, a Japanese-American man who lived in an internment camp as a child, move toward greater emotional awareness in his desire to connect with his wife. Siegel supports his clients with practices and psychoeducation, and the viewer with useful commentary that details his interventions and outlines his goals. His approach to mindfulness is both accessible and grounded, making it a suitable adjunct to modalities ranging from the cognitive to the psychodynamic to the humanistic. If you're a clinician wanting to understand what mindfulness looks like and how it can fit into your work, you'll find this to be an excellent resource

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marsha Linehan, PhD, the creator of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), is best known for her success with suicidal and highly complex clients. The amount of evidence-based research surrounding DBT is tremendous; not only in its application with Borderline Personality Disorder, but also with many other hard-to-treat conditions. In this video, watch Linehan demonstrate her approach with an extremely challenging client who manifests significant Axis II issues. This middle-aged man, portrayed by Dutch actor Henk Grashuis, is struggling with depression, suicidal ideation, anger, and a sense that he has been treated unfairly by his ex-girlfriend--all of which is hidden behind a brittle defensiveness. You'll see Linehan conducting an initial behavioral assessment, interspersed with DBT techniques, including her use of dialectics, irreverence, "validating the valid," and an emphasis on client choice. While the client works to keep his worst behaviors hidden from Linehan, and is reluctant to commit to any treatment, Linehan garners necessary information about him, assesses his suicidality and history of domestic violence, helps him define and commit to his goals, and builds an appropriate initial alliance
