It is available now in the iTunes store. It functions exactly the same, and has the same content as, the prior app. More information about the new app is available here.

NEW: Video Library

March 27, 2014 is a streaming video collection of psychotherapy and counseling videos featuring therapists of our time demonstrating techniques and commenting on their work.

Videos can be browsed by approach, therapeutic issue, expert, or population. Most of the videos have chapters, allowing you to easily navigate by section. Transcripts and subtitles are also available for many of the videos; transcripts are synchronized with the video, you’ll see the spoken words highlighted on the transcript as the video plays.

NOTE: Videos can be viewed on personal computers (Windows or Mac). Videos can also be viewed on iPads but not all functionality of the platform is fully supported. Videos cannot be viewed on non-OS mobile devices. The quality of the video is dependent on the speed of your Internet connection.
