Project Description

There is evidence that psychological therapies are effective for the treatment of psychological distress. Most therapies involves meeting with the therapist once a week for a maximum of one hour. Some therapies, particularly Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, set homework to be carried out between therapy sessions. Other therapies may not do this, but there is the expectation that processing work will continue and that the patient will reflect on their therapy sessions. This project will investigate this inter-session work from patients’ and therapists’ perspectives.
