Goal Setting in Cognitive Therapy
© Copyright Center for Cognitive Therapy / www.padesky.com
This audio program was edited in 2006 and is consistent with current CBT standards of treatment.
How do you help clients set and achieve goals when they have overwhelming problem lists? Or when their goals are too vague? Or when they have clear goals that are constantly sidetracked by interfering life events?
Dr. Padesky discusses and demonstrates essential goal setting processes necessary to navigate these common dilemmas and roadblocks.
Hear actual interactions of how to artfully combine therapeutic alliance and structure to facilitate goal setting. She identifies how client and therapist beliefs can enhance or interfere with productive goal-setting.
The benefits of both deconstructive and constructive language are highlighted.
