Text is highlighted as it is spoken. Some units provide a theoretical context through narration or other structural elements. Additional videos feature consultations (specialists advising other therapists) lectures, interviews, teaching guides. Some can be viewed for CE credit. Using this collection, it is possible to compare the application in practice of various therapeutic theories to a single problem.
