This DVD addresses the challenges many practitioners face in assimilating results from psychotherapy research into their treatment plans. Evidence-Based Treatment Planning for Depression DVD discusses depression and its diagnosis; the steps involved in psychotherapy treatment planning, empirically supported treatments for depression, and how to integrate objectives and intervention consistent those treatments into a treatment plan. Role-play scenarios illustrate selected aspects of the empirically supported treatments, including cognitive restructuring, behavioral activation, and problem solving. A corresponding workbook can be used in conjunction with the DVD as a self-paced or collaborative learning tool.
