In this third program in the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Techniques and Strategies Series, Keith S. Dobson, Pamela A. Hays, and Amy Wenzel demonstrate and discuss problem solving, ways to educate the client about self-change techniques, and other interventions commonly applied in the middle stage of treatment.

The guest experts explore techniques that help clients to define problems and then how to decide on and execute effective solutions. The ultimate goal of this stage of therapy is to give the client the tools to think critically and continue to make healthy decisions long after treatment ends.

Following each demonstration clip, the three experts explore the context and background of the techniques and strategies shown and discuss variations on how they might be used.
