Deliberate Practice in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- This book presents deliberate practice exercises in which students and trainees rehearse fundamental cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) skills until they become natural and automatic. Instructions guide readers through role-plays in which two participants play a client and a therapist, switching back and forth under a supervisor's guidance. The therapist improvises responses to common client statements, ranging in difficulty from beginner to advanced, allowing them to hone their own personal therapeutic style and develop basic competence.
