Donald-MeichenbaumA Cognitive-Behavioral Approach on Aggression

In this DVD, Dr. Donald Meichenbaum discusses violence and aggression, from origin to treatment. Dr. Meichenbaum draws upon his wealth of experience to articulate both how violent individuals are created and the thoughts that drive violent behavior. Dr. Meichenbaum advocates effective interventions with violence and explains the importance of Stress-Inoculation Training, which he describes as the “best evidence based intervention in working with angry and aggressive individuals.” He also defines key gender differences in aggression. “So our mission,” says Dr. Meichenbaum, “is not only to develop effective treatment programs for people who are angry and aggressive, the question is are we committed as a society to do that which we know to prevent violence in the first place? I think this film will go a long way in educating people to make that kind of passionate commitment.”
