Description

In Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Over Time, Dr. Amy Wenzel demonstrates this empirically validated approach over the course of six sessions with one client.

Cognitive behavioral theory posits that modifying ones thoughts can change not only cognitions, but also behaviors and feelings. Similarly, behavioral strategies can produce fairly immediate reductions in emotional distress, while also serving as agents of cognitive change. This approach has proven effective for treating clients presenting with a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, anger, addictions, personality disorders, and adjustment to medical illness.

In this video program, Dr. Wenzel works with a young woman in college who is trying to maintain a healthy life balance despite a stressful home environment in which she functions as caregiver to two family members. Over the course of treatment, Dr. Wenzel uses cognitive restructuring to engage the client in identifying, evaluating, and modifying the thoughts and underlying beliefs related to her stress and anxiety.
