Part of our comprehensive workbook series, the underlying principles in these resources include many elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). The Functional Thinking set of resources, however,
addresses the critical elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and can be viewed as a core cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) resource. This element also integrates
Motivational Interviewing (MI) tools into the actual program materials. This allows program staff to readily use
MI with the program participants. "Change talk" is elicited, and materials are sequenced to link to the stages of
change model (Prochaska and DiClemente).
These materials can be used in whole or in part to create a customized age- and gender-specific treatment program for
adult males, juvenile males, adult females, and
||Introduction to Functional Thinking

||Triggers Program Supplement
||This element helps participants identify the specific triggers of selected feelings and problem areas in their own lives.
||Triggers/External Risk Factors
||This element is designed to help participants further identify their external triggers (specifically high risk people, places, things, and situations). It is especially recommended as a guide for those new to treatment.
||Faulty Thinking and Functional Thinking
||This element is designed to help participants further identify their external triggers. It is especially recommended as a guide for those new to treatment. This program element is a modification of a resource also found in our Treatment Planning Series (TP), a behavioral health resource. This is a critical cognitive change element. It includes activities designed to help participants identify 13 different kinds of faulty thinking, and ways in which these types of thinking occur in their own lives. Then it identifies and guides practice in ways to change these types of thinking into more functional thinking. It also provides support in developing more independent thinking, and taking charge of their own lives.
||Functional Behaviors: making choices that work
||This program element guides the process of making more effective and helpful choices.
||Coping skills for emergencies
||This workbook provides an introduction and considerable practice in applying a set of essential basic coping skills.
||This resource provides a set of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and MI tools which can be used by program staff at their discretion in many areas of counseling. We recommend that these tools be used to reinforce and guide subsequent programming.
