Persons, J. B., Davidson, J., & Tompkins, M. A. (2000). Cognitive-behavior therapy for depression: Activity Scheduling. APA Psychotherapy Videotape Series. Washington, DC: American Psychological Association.
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.
