There are significant differences in the applications of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for families and individuals. The same is true for CBT in group settings and CBT in family settings. In your role, it is essential to understand these differences to appropriately apply this therapeutic approach across multiple settings. For this assignment, as you compare the use of CBT in individual, group, and family settings, consider challenges of using this approach with groups you may lead, as well as strategies for overcoming those challenges.
• Write an explanation of how the use of CBT in groups compares to its use in family or individual settings.
• Explain at least two challenges PMHNPs might encounter when using CBT in one of these settings.
• Recommend strategies to overcome these challenges or from your own experiences with clients.
