TBCT is an active approach to treatment that helps clients to recognize situationally based thoughts and unhelpful beliefs that exacerbate emotional distress. One of the main goals is to help clients modify the so-called core beliefs (CBs) which are those global, rigid, and over-generalized perceptions about themselves, and accepted as absolutely true to the point that they do not question them. However, TBCT has a unique approach to conceptualization and techniques that make it a distinct intervention in modifying clients' CBs.

Use the Cognitive Distortions Questionnaire (CD-Quest) to help clients assess their cognitive distortions.

Implement and explain the 14 steps of the Intra-personal Thought Record (Intra-TR).

Implement and explain the 7 steps of the Consensual Role-Play (CRP).

Demonstrate the 7 steps of Trial-Based Thought Record (Trial I) to change one or more core beliefs.

Demonstrate the 7 steps of the Trial-Based Metacognitive Awareness (Trial II) technique.
