Existential therapy

Dr. Kirk J. Schneider demonstrates his existential-integrative model of therapy. Developed by Schneider with the inspiration of Rollo May and James Bugental, existential-integrative therapy is one way to engage and coordinate a variety of intervention modes (such as the pharmacological, the behavioral, the cognitive, and the analytic) within an overarching existential or experiential context. In this session, Schneider emphasizes the experiential level of contact, which gives attention to experiencing what is "alive" both within the client and between the client and the therapist. Schneider works with a 55-year-old man who is presently disabled. The client is gay, had AIDS, and is having a hard time finding a meaningful life-direction. He feels he is being discriminated against because of his sexual orientation and illness. Schneider helps him to understand how his reactions can both keep him from transforming and potentially mobilize that very transformation. -- Publisher's descr
Medicating children

Streaming Rights = YES
Administering medication to children is a unique challenge requiring specialized knowledge and skills. Each child's age, background, and level of physical and psychosocial development must be considered, and the administration process tailored to meet these particular needs. In addition, children are particularly vulnerable to medication errors. This video will address general considerations for administering pediatric medications and present important guidelines to help prevent medication errors. Techniques for administering intermuscular and subcutaneous injections, as well as oral, rectal, otic, ophthalmic, and nasal medications will be presented, with emphasis on using appropriate strategies for children of different development levels.
