Therapeutic Relationship in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy: A Clinician’s Guide

Therapeutic Relationship in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy: A Clinician’s Guide

 

Preface




From leading cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) experts, this book describes ways to tailor empirically supported relationship factors that can strengthen collaboration, empiricism, and Socratic dialogue and improve outcomes. In an accessible style, it provides practical clinical recommendations accompanied by rich case examples and self-reflection exercises. The book shows how to use a strong case conceptualization to decide when to target relationship issues, what specific strategies to use (for example, expressing empathy or requesting client feedback), and how to navigate the therapist’s own emotional responses in session. Special topics include enhancing the therapeutic relationship with couples, families, groups, and children and adolescents. Reproducible worksheets can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2″ x 11″ size.
