Zindal Segal On Helping Clients Take The First Step

What’s happening when a client suffering from symptoms of depression is willing to follow the therapist’s voice with eyes closed?

According to Zindal Segal that simple act is a commitment to choicefulness and a first step towards shifting the perceptions that make depression so hard to shake.

In this video clip, Segal describes how guiding clients from wide focus to narrow focus and back to wide, beings a process that help clients move, by small steps, towards a new repertoire of more adaptive ways of responding to the stressing experiences that feed depression.

Zindel Segal is head of the Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Clinic of the Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto. This clip is taken from his session in our mind-body video course:
