What is a CBT Case Formulation Worksheet?

Case formulation is a very useful conceptual and clinical tool in psychotherapy. Case formulation can fill the gap between diagnosis and treatment, with the potential to provide insights into the integrative, explanatory, prescriptive, predictive, and therapist aspects of a case. A case formulation should provide a coherent summary and explanation of a client’s symptoms and problems. (Persons, 2008)

How will the CBT Case Formulation Worksheet help?

The case formulation bridges the assessment and treatment plan and informs a clinician’s treatment choices. It helps not only the therapist but also the client to connect the diagnosis, treatment, and symptoms. The worksheet will help you establish how others may perceive your behavior in a particular situation. It is about getting different perspectives about a problem.
