Empathic Therapy
A Psychotherapy Training Film (on DVD)
By Peter Breggin, M.D.

This 5-part 4 hour film is offered for the low introductory price of $39.95.


Dr. Breggin’s Empathic Therapy training film will help you to bring out the best in yourself so that you can bring out the best in others. With his genuine and profoundly engaging style of psychotherapy, Dr. Breggin shows how to relate to patients and clients in a manner that engenders trust, mutual understanding, and the opportunity for recovery and growth.


Rather than offering a new school of psychotherapy, Dr. Breggin’s film aims to enhance your own style of psychotherapy. Instead of “burn out,” look forward to every session and to improving your experience throughout your career.


The film demonstrates that empathic therapies are the best approach to the full spectrum of potential patients, including psychotic, suicidal and violent individuals. The emphasis on empathy can also be applied to your personal relationships.

The training film DVD consists of five parts: An introduction to Empathic Therapy by Dr. Breggin, three one-hour therapy demonstrations, and a commentary afterward by experienced therapists. In a unique feature, other therapists critique each of Dr. Breggin’s demonstrations, and interact with Dr. Breggin and the subjects, adding multiple perspectives to the training.


The premier of the film took place on April 9, 2011 at the first international Empathic Therapy Conference (www.empathictherapy.org) where professionals and non-professionals from around the world felt informed and inspired by it.


More about this Training Film:

WARNING!

Most psychiatric drugs can cause withdrawal reactions, sometimes including life-threatening emotional and physical withdrawal problems. In short, it is not only dangerous to start taking psychiatric drugs, it can also be dangerous to stop them. Withdrawal from psychiatric drugs should be done carefully under experienced clinical supervision. Methods for safely withdrawing from psychiatric drugs are discussed in Dr. Breggin's new book, Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients, and Their Families.
