Alexander Street Press’ Counseling and Therapy in Video database trial until April 31


Please come by the Reference Desk at the library for username and password information.

Counseling and Therapy in Video provides the largest and richest online collection of video available for the study of social work, psychotherapy, psychology, and psychiatric counseling—400 hours and 353 videos. The collection’s wealth of video and multiplicity of perspectives allow students and scholars to see, experience, and study counseling in ways never before possible. Counseling and Therapy in Video’s suite of tools—searches and browses powered by Semantic Indexing™ and searchable transcripts synchronized to video—give the ability to drill down in seconds to find the footage of interest from hundreds of hours of video.

The videos in this collection, drawn from the catalogs of Microtraining Associates, Psychotherapy.net, the University of Manchester Department of Psychiatry, American Psychiatric Publishing, Allyn and Bacon, and Pacific Seminars, have been created by a variety of organizations and individuals dedicated to the advancement of education and training in counseling and therapy. Several types of videos have been chosen to provide a well-rounded collection that will be of interest to students, academics, and professionals alike:
Counseling Sessions and Demonstrations include filmed footage of actual therapy sessions, re-enacted therapy sessions, and scripted sessions designed by counseling professionals to illustrate common issues and scenarios that arise during courses of therapy. These videos often include narration and frameworks that put the sessions into theoretical context.

Consultations feature experts in particular courses of therapy advising other therapists on the application of their methods. These videos often include scenes of counseling sessions interspersed with analysis and discussions between the consultant, the practicing therapists, and the clients.

Lectures, presentations, and interviews feature well-known therapists discussing their own work and issues affecting the larger fields of mental health and wellness.
Taken together, these materials provide a rich resource for the study of counseling theory and its applications. Users can compare, for example, how different therapeutic methods address common issues such as substance abuse or domestic violence; or how individual counselors differ in their applications of the same theory. The materials are also indexed by client and therapist details, enabling users to find materials dealing specifically with counseling African-Americans or Latinos, for example, or with counseling children or the elderly.

Teaching and Discussion Guides: Many of the videos in this collection include supplementary materials to aid in their use in classroom discussions and assignments.

Continuing Education (C.E) Credits are available for a number of the videos in this collection. C.E. credits are administered by the publishers of the videos, and require separate payment. Links to the appropriate publishers’ websites are included for all videos with associated C.E. credits available.

Critical Video Editions: The Alexander Street Critical Video Editions Series™ combines the excitement of video with the uniquely powerful search capabilities our collections are known for. We’ve developed software applications that make use of Alexander Street’s Semantic Indexing™ to enable precise searching and finding; easy browsing and moving about; citations down to the second; and searchable transcripts. Our video can be shared via embeddable links; users can create playlists and clips, with annotation features and the ability to incorporate other content from outside the collection; and more. These features and capabilities render video as useful for research and classroom use as any scholarly text.
