Training therapists (and therapists-to-be) poses unique challenges. Unlike almost every other profession, students rarely have the chance to view their mentors or teachers actually doing psychotherapy. Watching master psychotherapists in action on video is probably the next best thing. The opportunity to view actual sessions, and to hear leading experts discuss their thoughts behind their interventions is invaluable. Videos also capture the critical non-verbal aspects of therapy, including body language, facial expression, tone of voice, and the rhythm of the therapist-client interaction. And of course you can freeze the action at any point to discuss the subtleties of the therapeutic process. If you haven’t previously incorporated videos for into your teaching, I encourage you to see for yourself how useful they are.
