Similar hypotheses underpin cognitive therapy (CT) and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), yet the application of each is different when working with clients. CT involves adjusting how clients think and feel. CBT involves adjusting how clients think and behave. It is up to social workers or other helping professionals to compare both therapies and determine which is most effective for client intervention.

CBT

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.

Focused Therapy

Solution-focused therapy is an intervention that emphasizes finding solutions to client problems rather than focusing on the root of the actual problems. One of the major principles of solution-focused therapy includes the assertion that talking about problems with clients is not productive. For example, if a client experiences homelessness, solution-focused therapy might focus on concrete steps to immediately secure housing rather than focusing on understanding the root of the client's problem.

Case Study

When social workers use solution-focused therapy to work with a client, they employ a variety of principles and techniques. For example, social workers may de-emphasize client problems, look for previous solutions to client problems, and use the compliments technique to work with clients. Using these techniques and others in solution-focused therapy is important to the success of the intervention.
