Psychotherapies: Resources

Today in class you'll be exploring various approaches to psychotherapy. Because people are going to come to this topic with wildly different levels of background knowledge and different levels of mastery of the information from the textbook reading, I'm posting some resources here that you should feel free to use as you see fit.

First, here are the slides on Psychotherapies. Some of these I used in class already, but the final parts of this slide show may be helpful in filling in your Psychotherapy Grid.



If the text on the slides and what you read in your textbook doesn't cut it, I've recorded videos of lecture notes on each of the major approaches to psychotherapy, and you're welcome to view them if that helps.

Insight-Based Psychotherapies: Psychoanalysis, Interpersonal Therapy, and Humanistic Therapy


Cognitive Psychotherapies


Behavioral Therapies


Family and Group Psychotherapies

Infant Reflexes

Infant Reflexes
Your text does not cover some of these important infant reflexes, so I want to make sure you've had a chance to see them. All of them are present in newborns and aid the survival of otherwise vulnerable infants.

Rooting Reflex



Sucking Reflex (this video will actually demonstrate both sucking and rooting reflexes)


Grasping Reflex


Moro Reflex (This is sometimes described as an infant's startle response. Can be brought on by any unexpected stimulus. Although this is nicely illustrated in the video below, I like this one better, because it's cute.)


Babinski Reflex (Ignore the weird, melodramatic tone in this video)

Follow the directions found here, and just swap in a picture of your selected psychologist for the holiday paper.

Who wouldn't want Freud glaring at them from the tree?
