Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Family Settings Versus Individual Settings Assignment

Discussion: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Family Settings Versus Individual Settings
Whether used with individuals or families, the goal of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is to modify client behavior. Although CBT for families is similar to CBT for individuals, there are significant differences in their applications. As you develop treatment plans, it is important that you recognize these differences and how they may impact your therapeutic approach with families. For this Discussion, as you compare the use of CBT for families and individuals, consider challenges of applying this therapeutic approach to your own client families.Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Family Settings Versus Individual Settings Assignment
