“I will use these videos[this video] in my practice and teaching without hesitation. Combining accurate information about cognitive-behavioral therapy with compelling stories from individuals who have benefitted greatly from treatment, the programs are ideal viewing for new clients. They can also be used in training and coursework for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in abnormal psychology, psychotherapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy courses. For practicing therapists interested in learning more about the cognitive-behavioral approach, the videos offer an informative introduction.”—Richard E. Zinbarg, PhD, Northwestern University
