The PsycTHERAPY Teaching Guide

PsycTHERAPY® is APA’s database of streaming psychotherapy videos, allowing users to observe psychotherapy techniques as they are put into practice by master practitioners. The videos cover a variety of presenting issues and therapy topics, such as anxiety and self-perception, and include an assortment of well-known therapists working with individuals, couples, and families. The database enables graduate students, educators, and practitioners to see the therapeutic approaches and techniques they’ve read about come to life. Currently, PsycTHERAPY contains nearly 400 videos, with an update scheduled for April that will bring the total number available to 430.

The book features a series of exercises, including step-by-step instructions, for using PsycTHERAPY with students, in clinical supervision settings, psychotherapy researcher training, and more.
