Constructing NEW Core Beliefs

CBT Clinical Demonstration with Christine A. Padesky, PhD.

Full Color MP4 video. Run Time 61 minutes.

Illustrates how to engage a doubtful client and evoke curiosity regarding the possibility of NEW core beliefs.

Dr. Padesky and a volunteer therapist conduct a role-play demonstration of a woman who has suffered from recurrent depression and low self-esteem who would like to develop a new core belief: "I am wonderful."

The primary methods used to strengthen new core beliefs are demonstrated including use of a continuum and assignment of a core belief log.

In narrative comments before and after the demonstration, Dr. Padesky highlights the importance of the therapeutic alliance and the benefits of using written "shoulder-to-shoulder" methods instead of "eyeball-to-eyeball" dialogues when constructing new core beliefs. Since it is difficult for clients to imagine new core beliefs, this client's skepticism and cognitive "blanks" are quite typical.

This video illustrates how to engage a client and evoke curiosity regarding the possibility of new core beliefs even when the client is doubtful that this approach will help.

Outstanding Educational Training Resources

These are outstanding educational training resources that will be helpful to students and practitioners of all levels. I have found them to be a great resource in my clinical work and will also use them in my didactic lectures with students. I highly recommend them. -- Frank M.

Excellent video. Very useful for my work as a psychotherapist and for myself, personally. I am looking forward to purchasing more videos by Dr. Padesky.
