Dr Johnson has produced a range of videos which are available on her YouTube channel. The videos provide materials for teaching psychological formulation and CBT techniques. They have been used by Oxford University Press as A-Level Teaching Material, as resources by NHS Education for Scotland and by universities in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and Portugal. One of these videos was voted a video of the year in 2015

While the therapy clients in the videos are played by actors, the dialogue is not scripted and as such represents a natural therapeutic exchange. A selection of these is provided below. For all videos, please see Dr Johnson’s YouTube channel.
