Counseling and Psychotherapy Transcripts (Volume 1, Volume 2) is a unique online series that lets students and researchers peer deeply into the client-therapist relationship and follow the progress—and the setbacks—of clients across multiple therapy sessions. This multi-part collection is growing to include 6,000 transcripts of real therapy sessions, 40,000 pages of client narratives, and 25,000 pages of reference works in one cross-searchable interface. Together, these materials bring the therapeutic process to life and provided unprecedented levels of access to the broadest range of clients.

Volume 1 lays an important foundation for clinical work with clients by providing 2,000 real-life, fully anonymized transcripts alongside an extensive selection of primary accounts, handbooks, and reference works.More than 25,000 pages of reference material round out this volume, complementing and contextualizing the primary sources. Content includes encyclopedic entries, textbook case studies, and how-to material from leading professionals in the field.

Volume 2 builds on the foundation of the inaugural edition with 4,000 new transcripts of actual therapy sessions. Because all content was recorded in 2012 or later, Volume II is an ideal resource for examining the most up-to-date therapeutic approaches and methods and their real-life applications. The collection features a diverse set of clients, a wide range of presenting issues, and multiple therapeutic approaches, making this an outstanding resource for teaching and research.
