Initial Assessment

The initial assessment consists of one or two sessions in which a clinician asks questions about the problems currently being experienced. Based on the information gathered, a list of treatment options are generated and then shared with the client during a feedback session, which occurs shortly after the initial intake session(s). Treatment options at the CBT Research and Training Clinic can include individual and/or group psychotherapy. Referrals to other local mental health care providers may also be made, when appropriate.
