VCU Libraries offers a trial of streaming videos from Psychotherapy.net. Faculty are invited to access this item from the Trials web page. Test this from home or remote locations to see how the streaming holds up. Feedback will be important to making a purchasing decision. The trial goes through Oct. 10.
Psychotherapy.net includes interviews, lectures and therapy sessions conducted by leading psychotherapists and counselors. VCU Libraries already holds many Psychotherapy.net titles on DVD and online via Counseling and Therapy in Video. The collection in preview now includes newer titles but there is some overlap with existing products.
Features include the ability to search the collection by keyword or browse by client population, therapist, therapeutic genre or specific issue. There is also an easy way to create clips for classroom use or research by highlighting text in the transcript. Plus, users can further refine their search by looking for keywords in the transcript when they are viewing a particular video.
