Prior to using cognitive therapy as an intervention with a client, it is important for social workers to be aware of the current research on both the client problem and possible interventions. Based on research and professional experience, social workers should be confident about the effectiveness of the cognitive therapy intervention before they use it with a client. If there is evidence of contraindication for cognitive therapy for the specific client problem, the social worker should consider supervision and/or an alternative intervention.
Before you delve into this Application Assignment, select a client problem that you might encounter in social work practice. Then search the Library and select three research articles that address the effectiveness of the intervention CBT in treating the problem you selected.
