Video & Sound Recordings

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.

Video:  Please check the UB Catalog for availability. The loan period for the physical materials is 10 days.

Sound:  The sound recordings may be accessed by clicking the link below.

Streaming:  The streaming video may be accessed by using the link to Counseling and Psychotherapy in Video, also below.
