In Structure of the Therapy Session, Drs. Joan Davidson, Jacqueline B. Persons, and Michael A. Tompkins discuss and demonstrate the structure of a typical cognitive–behavioral therapy session. This video covers components of a session, the theoretical rationale and empirical support behind the structure of the session, and a demonstration with a client. The demonstration features titles that show the steps followed in the therapy session.

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