Cognitive Behavioral Theory: Goal
produce changes in the cognitive process to maintain a behavior that needs to change
Cognitive Behavioral Theory: cognitions
thoughts that occur in one's stream of consciousness ("automatic thoughts," "internal dialogue," or "self talk")
Cognitive Behavioral Theory: overview
people's behavior/feelings are influenced by their perception of events or situations, often expressed in internal dialogue; cognitive distortions = negative thoughts that inhibit behavior change; cognitive restructuring modifies the client's thinking and the assumptions and attitudes underlying these cognitions
Transtheoretical Model: Overview + the stages
identifies stages f change that individuals pass through before actualizing a change: precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, maintenance
Transtheoretical Model: Precontemplation + How to Handle It

counselor identifies the client's emotion or feeling and reflects it back, allowing the client to stop and contemplate what was said ("you seem very frustrated by what your husband says about your food choices")
strategies to modify resistance behavior: double-sided reflection
counselor uses ideas that the client has expressed previously to show the discrepancy between the client's current words and previous ones ("I'm doing the best I can" 10 minutes after admitting that sometimes she just gives up and doesn't care about following the diet)
strategies to modify resistance behavior: shifting focus
counselor questions the feasibility of continuing to focus on a given barrier to change when others may be more appropriate ("are you sure that this is really the problem? Is part of the problem that ____?" getting to the root of the problem)
strategies to modify resistance behavior: agreeing with a twist
counselor offers an agreement but moves the discussion in a different direction ("most people like eating out. Now that you are retired it is easier than cooking. I can understand that. What can we do to make you feel great about eating out so that you can still follow your eating plan and keep your BG values in normal range?")
strategies to modify resistance behavior: reframing
counselor changes the client's interpretation of the basic data by offering a new perspective; counselor repeats basic observation then offers new hypothesis ("I remember how devastated you were when he died and how just cooking meals was an effort. Do you think that this happened as a kind of immediate response to his death and that you might have just decided that all of the goals were too strict at the time?" ... "Could we look at where you are now and try to find things that will work for you now to help you in following the goals we have set?"
strategies to modify resistance behavior: self-efficacy and self-management
counselor always emphasizes that future actions belong to the client and that the advice can be taken or disregarded. emphasize autonomy and competence
