Description

The Self Practice Record Form is a worksheet for recording out-of-session or between-session tasks in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). It deliberately avoids the use of the word ‘homework’ which some clients find off-putting. Out-of-session work (collaboratively generated and negotiated) is an essential component of effective CBT. For example, research has indicated that: “There is relatively consistent evidence from correlational studies to conclude that homework adherence is associated with significantly better outcomes” (Thase & Callan, 2006).
