Discussion: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Group Settings Versus Family Settings

As you might recall from previous lecture, there are significant differences in the applications of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for families and individuals. The same is true for CBT in group settings and CBT in family settings. In your role as Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP), it is essential to understand these differences to appropriately apply this therapeutic approach across multiple settings. For this Discussion, as you compare the use of CBT in group settings and family settings, consider challenges of using this approach with your own groups.

Learning Objectives

Students will:

· Compare the use of cognitive behavioral therapy for groups to cognitive behavioral therapy for families

· Analyze challenges of using cognitive behavioral therapy for groups

· Recommend effective strategies in cognitive behavioral therapy for groups

To prepare:

· Reflect on your practicum experiences with CBT in group and family settings.

Assignment

Write an explanations of how the use of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) in groups compares to its use in family settings. Provide specific examples from your own practicum experiences. Then, explain at least two challenges counselors might encounter when using CBT in the group setting. Support your response with specific examples from this week’s media.
