What are "behavioral experiments?"
How and when do I use them?
How can I decide what to assign for homework?
Some of my clients just won't do the homework!
Behavioral experiments are one of the most powerful tools a cognitive therapist and client can use to effect meaningful behavior change. But their power is generated only by an appropriate connection to the critical beliefs that support a client's distress and dysfunction. The key is the appropriate connection to the critical beliefs that are central to the maintenance of longstanding, recurrent problems.
For your client population, learn how to:
- IDENTIFY underlying assumptions (UAs), the beliefs that are central to the maintenance of longstanding, recurrent problems
- USE specific principles to set up behavioral experiments and maximize client learning
- DEBRIEF experiments to enhance understanding and change
- IMPLEMENT seven homework principles to increase client motivation and success
