During a recent Beck Institute workshop, Drs. Aaron Beck, Judith Beck, and Torrey Creed discuss how to address multiple problems in treatment. Dr. Judith Beck stresses the importance of discussing the client’s new or current problem but also remembering to review homework from the previous session which may have been used to target a different problem (or problems) addressed previously. Further, using case conceptualization to guide treatment helps the therapist identify common threads within the conceptualization and maintain treatment continuity.
For additional CBT resources and information, we’d like to invite you to sign up for our mailing list and e-newsletter, which features articles on a wide range of topics in CBT by both Drs. Beck and leading clinicians from around the world. To subscribe, visit www.beckinstitute.org.
