Aaron T. Beck, MD., therapist. ©1977. All rights reserved.

In this classic roleplayed recording, Dr. Beck demonstrates the use of cognitive therapy with a depressed and suicidal woman. He skillfully interweaves accurate empathy, socialization of the patient to the cognitive model, and collaborative rational evaluation of her distressing thoughts and beliefs. His style exemplifies collaborative empiricism and the active, structured, direct, and problem-oriented approach used in cognitive therapy. This tape also demonstrates how to conceptualize a patient in a cognitive framework.
