Description

In Activity Scheduling, Drs. Jacqueline B. Persons, Joan Davidson, and Michael A. Tompkins explain and demonstrate one of the fundamental building blocks of cognitive–behavioral therapy (CBT): helping a client schedule activities. Activity scheduling is a powerful intervention and is more complicated than it may seem at first. This video provides guidelines for successful activity scheduling, a demonstration with a client who is depressed, and a detailed discussion of the theory and practice of this technique.

This video features a client portrayed by an actor on the basis of actual case material.
