This audiotape features a "clinical roundtable" discussion by various clinicians attending the 35th annual meeting of the Association for Advancement of Behavior Therapy (November, 2001, Philadelphia, PA; 60 minutes, 211116-080, Audio Archives International, La Crescenta, CA; also see AABT web site below).

Beck, A.T. (1990). Cognitive Therapy of an Avoidant Personality.

The following session shows how one can begin to modify these beliefs. (Guilford Publications: 2 cassettes with a total running time of 99 mins.; may be obtained through Guilford Press, catalog # 2966).

Benjamin, L.S. (1999). Interpersonal Reconstructive Therapy for Passive-Aggressive Personality Disorder.

This videotape shows a 4th session conducted by Dr. Benjamin with a client portrayed by a professional actor using real case material. Interpersonal reconstructive therapy is based on the assumption that people develop problematic patterns in order to stay connected with the important people from their past. Persistent maladaptive personality patterns represent a repetition of familiar behavior and perspectives that were appropriate given family dynamics during childhood, but that have lost their adaptive quality in adulthood. IRT helps the client to recognize, understand, and change these maladaptive patterns so he/she can experience a more fulfilling life. (40 to 50 mins.; order online or by calling the American Psychological Association; see below).

This tape (also part of the American Psychological Association Psychotherapy Videotape Series) demonstrates how seven psychologists handle patient anger in a therapy session. The vignettes are drawn from videotaped sessions in which professional actors, adept at improvisation, portrayed actual clients in unscripted and spontaneous exchanges expressing anger toward their respective therapists at some point in the session. Variety was sought in both the type of psychotherapist and the type of patient anger. The psychotherapists represent psychologists of differing gender, age, and theoretical orientation. (35-min.
