More about the academy….And another important training….

You’re invited to go to the main website to learn more about the story behind, owned by Victor Yalom, the son of Irvin Yalom.
As their tagline states, shares the belief that great therapists (mental and behavioral health professionals of all kinds) never stop learning. And one of the most effective ways to learn is to watch master therapists in action. The academy will make it possible for you to do just that at a time and at a location that is convenient for YOU. 

In 1995, psychologist Victor Yalom videotaped one of his mentors, James Bugental, PhD conducting psychotherapy sessions with the goal of preserving his work to allow others to observe his mastery. One thing led to another, and was born.

Fast forward 20+ years (while all of us have been navigating from VHS and DVDs to Netflix style streaming services for solo practitioners and multi-user institutions) and they now offer a library of over 300 training videos featuring the leading practitioners of the field. Plus, they publish articles and interviews, blogs and even cartoons—the latter drawn by their illustrious founder and CEO.

Last week, a link to a training dealing specifically with substance use among adolescents was posted. Here is another link to a video in this training series those working in schools and with children and adolescents in other settings may find useful in their important work with students: MI with Adolescents – Core Concepts
