Very listenable, well structured - some areas, like attachment theory a bit thin from an academic perspective, glosses details, but understandable and not really misleading for lay parent audience. Nice tips on how to handle screen time, from his pro and personal experience, though some areas need updating, such as AAP's guidelines on screen time and tablet use. The 'nothing before 2 yrs' idea now revised in light of more up to date understanding :)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a well-tested collection of practical techniques for managing moods and modifying undesirable behaviors through self-awareness, critical analysis, and goal-oriented change. CBT illuminates the links between thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and physical health and uses those connections to develop concrete plans for self-improvement. In 24 engaging half-hour lectures, you'll build a robust and effective self-improvement toolkit with the expert guidance of Professor Satterfield of the University of California, San Francisco.

Having studied and worked with CBT in a research and psychoeducational setting I found Dr Satterfield's presentation very useful and inspiring. Already shared with friends and colleagues.
