Each video, with its accompanying Viewer's Manual, is a self-contained course in Coherence Therapy that delivers an abundance of instructional value.  The therapeutic potency and impact of each session is unmistakable.

Numerous concepts, methods and skills of highly effective in-depth therapy are explained and demonstrated, including the facilitation of memory reconsolidation, the brain's innate process for fundamentally nullifying emotional learnings.

You can view each video with or without Bruce Ecker's voiceover commentaries, which map out the unfolding steps of the process and explain how he is listening, thinking, and choosing what to do next.

In the Viewer's Manual you have:

•  Transcript with inserted commentaries (see image below—the same commentaries as in the video voiceover)
•  A clear introductory overview of Coherence Therapy and memory reconsolidation that prepares clinicians who are new to this approach for understanding and gaining richly from the work shown in the video
•  A review of the implicit, non-conscious schemas (emotional learnings) that the session revealed to be generating the problem
•  A page index of techniques used
•  A list of learning resources with live links, including several that instantly download key articles at no cost.

Compulsive Underachieving
A Stump With Humble Roots,
A Mother's Terms of Attachment
One session, 53 minutes (1 hour 22 minutes with voiceover commentaries)
Therapist:  Bruce Ecker, LMFT
A woman is troubled and baffled that she keeps letting important opportunities for success pass by.  Will her whole life be stunted in this way?  The discovery work meets sizable resistance in this workshop demonstration session, creating a close look at how resistance is worked with in Coherence Therapy by openly accepting it and making it safe for the resistance to reveal what it's protecting and what's at stake.
With resistance dissolved, the client's unconscious priorities emerge powerfully, with liberating results.  As she contacts and feels what's dangerous about not staying small, the emotion visible in her face is unforgettable.  Very specific contours of high-anxiety insecure attachment become crystal clear.
This session illustrates the way transformational change develops in about half of all Coherence Therapy cases: When the client becomes aware, for the first time, of exactly how and why the symptom is necessary to have according to potent emotional learnings, those learnings can spontaneously juxtapose with other vivid knowledge that profoundly disconfirms them, and they wither and dissolve.  So does the symptom itself, as the client's remarkable follow-up report spells out four months later.

Down Every Year
The Long Reach of a Boy's Meaning-Making
One session, 45 minutes (1 hour 8 minutes with voiceover commentaries)
Therapist:  Bruce Ecker, LMFT
A man describes the annual depression that has mystified him for decades, the feeling of being an imposter, and his impatient, angry tone with coworkers.  Then the discovery phase of Coherence Therapy begins, a movement from the symptom down along linkages into the underlying emotional learnings driving it.  The process of discovering this man's unconscious emotional truths demonstrates a variety of simple but highly effective techniques.
The mystery lifts as pivotal childhood events thirty years prior come to the fore and are deeply revisited.  What's revealed are the dire meanings he made of those experiences and has carried ever since, outside of awareness—meanings that mire him in hopeless despair, especially at a particular time of year, and keep him lodged in feeling himself fundamentally inadequate.
Guided into recognizing, naming and feeling his dire core beliefs for the first time in his life, spontaneously a contrary knowing emerges, creating a juxtaposition experience that unlocks the grip that his ten-year-old meaning-making has had on his life ever since.  Five months after the session, he reports the falling away of his symptoms and a transformed relationship with his parents.

Always Ten Minutes Late
Procrastination As a Portal Into Insecure Attachment
One session, 39 minutes (1 hour 14 minutes with voiceover commentaries)
Therapist:  Bruce Ecker, LMFT
The discovery phase of Coherence Therapy is featured in this workshop demonstration session.  When the client says she is "always ten minutes late," that is the point of departure for finding the implicit emotional learnings requiring that compulsive behavior.
By following the coherence trail, the discovery work goes into the core of the insecure attachment and emotional wounds she endured in her family in childhood.  The client, recognizing for the first time not just one but several ways in which being ten minutes late has passionate emotional meaning for her, calls the session "a breakthrough."  The session has shifted her from being puzzled about a seemingly bad habit with a mysterious life of its own, into experiencing her own agency and purpose in implementing her solution to core problems in her life.
You'll see how much core, symptom-generating material can be richly accessed in one session, without any hurry whatsoever, by following the coherence of the symptom—in other words, by focusing the discovery work entirely on eliciting how the symptom is emotionally necessary to have.

Stuck in Depression
A Disabling Bereavement
One session, 40 minutes (1 hour 7 minutes with voiceover commentaries)
Therapist:  Bruce Ecker, LMFT
Eight years after the death of her 5-year-old boy, a mother of three remains stuck in depression, pain and guilt.  This video shows the discovery phase of Coherence Therapy encountering significant resistance repeatedly, until the protective purpose of that resistance is accommodated.  Then the unconscious emotional truths come into awareness, revealing how her emotional debilitation has been necessary for avoiding other specific sufferings that would be, for her, even worse.
The session provides a striking demonstration of symptom coherence by bringing to light the client's purpose and agency underlying symptoms that would be regarded by many therapists as an entirely maladaptive and dysfunctional state of emotional dysregulation.  The necessity of working experientially is particularly apparent.  The session illustrates the use of several different experiential processes.
Very soon after the client becomes aware of what she is protecting herself from by remaining depressed, a juxtaposition experience develops, and markers of transformational change then emerge: distinct somatic sensations of heaviness disappear and the array of responsibilities awaiting her no longer feels overwhelming.
