Video Transcription

In Cognitive Analytical Therapy, people get an understanding of themselves and their patterns and relationships through something that we refer to as a reformulation letter. And they understand a bit about how the story of their life as they have told it to the therapist might result in the current difficulties that they’re facing in their life. And then usually in the second phase of the therapy, we have a change oriented phasing which we’re looking at breaking patterns in relationships and patterns that might have caused the individual difficulties throughout their lifetime.
