CBT Case Formulation Worksheet
What is the theory behind the CBT Case Formulation Worksheet?
Case formulation is a basic summary of the client’s profile and presenting problems. In Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, case formulations are specific to every client’s needs and treatment goals and are completed through the full collaboration of the client and the therapist. This ensures client engagement and participation in their own treatment process.
