Cognitive behavioral therapy videos for laypeople
August 17, 2014 10:58 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for good, professional videos that describe the techniques of CBT for laypeople. Basically, a visual version of a CBT self-help book. I've searched YouTube and the videos are either light on technique and/or have a creepy narrator. I think my friend could benefit from it, but he needs an introduction to it first. Second choice would be a workshop where the techniques are covered. Any suggestions?

Don't know about quite that but www.centreforclinicalinterventions (an Aussie site) is accessible and sound - go to the workbooks section, all free.

Learning Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a good CBT textbook that comes with a DVD that has videos that show examples of CBT in action.

These Smart Recovery slides are kind of specific to addiction and recovery, but they're good resources on the basics of CBT.

Not exactly what you're looking for, but this old video of Albert Ellis conducting a session is interesting. You can find other stuff by just searching youtube for CBT.
