Psychotherapy with the experts

In the first video Jeffrey is interviewed by several editors at Oxford University Press about his life experiences and how they led him to pursue a path as a psychotherapist and social justice advocate. He also discusses some of his seminal ideas that are featured in the latest edition of his bestselling book, On Being a Therapist, that has influenced generations of therapists (and their clients) for the past 30 years.

Jeffrey talks about his journey reconciling apparent differences between various theoretical orientations to counseling and psychotherapy and distilling them into an integrative model that engages clients and combines certain core ingredients. This is excepted from a video series from a number of years ago on "Psychotherapy with the Experts".

In this brief talk, Jeffrey explains how storytelling is so influential in our lives and often leads to change even more powerful than any other helping modality.
