1. This lecture was given by M. Katherine Shear, MD, on January 29th, 2014, at Uris Auditorium, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York NY.

    In this lecture, Dr. Shear explains the diagnosis of Complicated Grief and its treatment. Dr. Shear has developed and empirically tested a psychotherapy protocol which borrows from exposure therapy, interpersonal therapy, and experiential work to help those suffering from prolonged, unresolved distress after the death of a loved one.

Presented here are videos of selected lectures that were given as part of the NYC-CBT Lecture Series. We are proud to have preserved these important talks by esteemed leaders in the field, offered here for members of NYC-CBT to view.

Please Note: Not all lectures we have hosted are able to be archived, and the videos are offered here with a one-year delay after the time they were given live. These are no-frills productions, most certainly - the camera is typically focused on the powerpoint slide show while the speaker give the lecture. They are offered in case the lecture was given before you were a member, or in case you were unable to attend a given lecture but were very interested in the topic.

So we definitely encourage you to attend the lectures in-person when you can!

None the less, we hope you enjoy these educational opportunities aimed at informing CBT practice through disseminating research and clinical findings.
