About the Course:

There is no substitute for seeing James Bugental in action. This program consists of two video tapes of Dr. Bugental conducting two full-length psychotherapy sessions, each followed by a panel discussion. At the end of the second session, you will see an impromptu discussion with the client. The result is a documentary that brings to life his core concepts of resistance as self-and-world-construct, the importance of therapist and client presence, and the primacy of the subjective as the proper realm for true psychotherapy.

Please Note: The two Video Tapes for this course are generally a special order item with an additional fee of $85. The tapes are normally $150, but we worked out a special arrangement with the distributor to make them available to your for only $85.
