This guide will introduce you to the Video collections within Alexander Street Press. To date Pepperdine has a subscription to: Counseling and Therapy in Video, Volume 1. These 356 videos range from approximately 20 minutes to over an hour; the average length is just under an hour. The content includes therapy sessions (actual, reenacted, or scripted), experts discussing therapeutic approaches and analyzing examples, and presentations in which noted therapists lecture about issues in the mental health field. The videos are accompanied by written transcripts, which scroll as the video plays and highlight the corresponding text; many include teaching guides. The videos included in this collection can be used freely for educational purposes.
Tip 1: Keep searches simple and specific. For example, to find Adlerian therapy, you only need to enter: Adlerian.
Tip 2: Try double-checking your spelling before giving up a search.
Tip 3: Word order, case and punctuation are not important. For example, Allen Ivey may be entered: Ivey Allen
Tip 4: You can enter more than one term in each search box. For instance, if you wish to find all videos featuring either cognitive or behavioral therapy, use the Basic search box and enter: cognitive behavioral
Tip 5: When using the Advanced Search interface, try to use the most appropriate term box for your search.
Tip 6: Enter terms in the singular, e.g. "session" not "sessions"
Tip 7: If your advanced search produces no results, try using a Boolean 'OR' search instead and reducing the number of search terms entered.
