Topic: Introduction to goal setting: The purpose of this module is to highlight the importance of goal setting in CBT, and to introduce some of the key principles and practices of goal setting. In particular, the focus is on: the value of goal setting; setting goals which will be useful; key questions in goal setting; other key techniques (e.g. imagery) which facilitate goal setting. The presentation features a role-play with a depressed client where some of the key questions and techniques are utilised.

Further strategies to enhance goal attainment: It is one thing to set goals. It is another to achieve them. This presentation focuses on two techniques to enhance goal attainment: identifying strategies to achieve goals (outcomes), as well as the outcomes themselves; and using a dimensional, or continuum, approach to goal-setting as an aid to measuring and re-measuring for certain types of goals. A role-play demonstrates the use of these techniques with the same depressed client as in the introduction to goal setting presentation
