Behavioral Emergencies by DVD
"A behavioral emergency is defined as a situation in which a client presents as being at imminent risk of behaving in a way that could result in serious harm or death to self or others. Discerning a behavioral emergency requires careful evaluation. Once an evaluation uncovers an imminent risk, therapists are required to respond immediately to prevent any harm from occurring.The teaching examples presented in this video illustrate a course of action for swift and thoughtful decision-making in a stressful situation, demonstrate how to cope with stress that may result from such situations, and help distinguish a behavioral emergency from a behavioral crisis.In this video Dr. Phillip Kleespies evaluates and manages a behavioral crisis that could develop into an emergency if not given appropriate clinical attention with a middle-aged man who is considering suicide.This video features a client portrayed by an actor on the basis of a composite of case details."-- APA's website.

Multicultural Care in Practice by "Culture influences how a client develops and expresses emotional distress and how that distress is healed through therapeutic intervention. Multicultural Care in Practice emphasizes culturally adapting psychotherapy to the needs of the clients, employing cultural competence to maximally connect with clients.Becoming culturally competent involves a clinical commitment to gaining knowledge and awareness of the client's attitudes, which enables the clinician to intellectually, affectively, and culturally empathize with the client and demonstrate cultural sensitivity showing awareness, interest, and commitment to recognizing the client's culture in all aspects of the therapeutic relationship.Multicultural care practitioners recognize the importance of clinical competence. However, they also recognize the value of cultural competence, and research indicates that clients who perceive their therapist to be culturally competent have better outcomes in therapy.In this demonstration, Dr. Lillian Comas-Díaz works with an African American woman who is making a decision about dating a partner outside of her own culture. Dr. Comas-Díaz demonstrates cultural empathy in working with the client, discussing how this decision will impact the client's relationship with her family and how to preserve that relationship while remaining true to herself." -- Container.

Phil Zimbardo on the Stanford Prison experiment, evil and heroism "In this video interview, Dr. Philip Zimbardo speaks in-depth about the Stanford Prison Experiment, Abu Ghraib, and how to cultivate heroism in everyday people. The 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment was the most notorious of Zimbardo's studies, and here he describes its methodology, goals, unraveling, and abrupt cancellation after only six days of its planned two-week run. He goes on to discuss his work as an analyst during the Abu Ghraib trials, bringing his expertise to bear on the psychological processes at work among the guards. By watching this video, you will understand Zimbardo's ideas about the conditions leading to "evil," compliance (what causes us to look the other way), learned helplessness (through the gradual acclimation to fearful situations), and "the illusion of personal invulnerability"--the idea that we would make better choices in similar situations. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions."
