  1. 17:50 he is distorting and dishonest. Nobody uses psychology to talk someone into more appointments. Everyone should educate themselves in psychology to know what is going on when you see it so that no one may be distorted ever again.

  2. 1. There is not contract. 2. If the guy was mad he would divorce. 3. The guys delusion is that he expects a non tangible contract compels her to the contract with no evidence. 4. He rambled aimlessly about his kids and is not appropriately answering questions. 5. He complains to a therapist about his kids then the psychologist continues to fixate on unimportant concepts. 6. To sum the psychologist is a dishonest scum.

  3. Are these guys actors? Comes across like that…the therapist may be a real one but the patient has to be an actor…ah, I've just watched the end titles and see that he's a composite played by actor Bruce Katzman in 1994

  4. Arthur Freeman is a genius in how he models the essence of CBT, by using "wondering", "curious", "that's certainly one way to think about it" Also, this is an elegant approach as he never directly instructs the client to think or feel a certain way. He is validating, warm and consistent.

  5. What's with the little yellow numbers that pop up in the lower bottom left corner?

  6. I'm not sure if this is the right approach. Having someone constantly asking me "how does that make me feel" would drive me nuts. I'm sure this guy was getting pretty frustrated.

  7. I enjoyed this, it was good to have the explanations as they helped me (as a trainee counsellor) to understand the process.  If anything (for me) the obstacle was the positioning of the chairs [facing] felt a little like an interview or doctor/patient scenario.  The table (although I personally like tables/desks) would potentially be a barrier by many counsellors.  Thumbs up from me though – nice work 🙂
