Rollo May Videos

Rollo May on Existential Psychology Video (Snippet; 2 min 52 seconds)

Purchase on Amazon

This is a controversial clip on Rollo May, which some people have a negative reaction to. This can be interpreted as being very negative and condenscending about other approaches to therapy. I think, in general, May had respect for different approaches, but felt that some other approaches, not all, were “gimick therapy” and did not sufficiently address important issues in psychotherapy. For the most part, existential therapists are very respectful of other approaches to therapy.

Phenomenology Videos

Jon Raskin Interviewing Brent Robbins on Phenomenology
This is an interview from the 3rd Annual Society of Humanistic Psychology Conference held October 2009 at the University of the Rockies in Colorado Springs. We set this interview up as a re-enactment, of sorts, from a conversation we had at the American Psychological Association Conference earlier in the year. It was such a great discussion on the similarities and difference of constructivism and phenomenology that I felt it would be a great help to students trying to understand this.
