The UB Libraries support a rich collection of video and sound recordings produced by the American Psychological Association and other publishers. These recordings present real and simulated clinical sessions. They offer a unique opportunity to see and hear the luminaries of the field (e.g., Aaron Beck, Albert Ellis, Virginia Satir) as well as ordinary practitioners in action.

The Alexander Street (Proquest) platform contains online videos of actual and simulated sessions of counseling and psychotherapy. It also includes lectures, interviews with well-known therapists, and excerpts from psychological consultations.
Two nice features are (1) the on-screen transcripts that accompany each video and (2) the availability of keyword searching. This search capability enables users to zero in on specific disorders, themes, techniques, populations, and the like. The database currently contains hundreds of videos (350 hours).
