Preventative Cognitive Therapy
PCT consists of 8 sessions, in which the therapist work with the client on how to prevent relapse. After each session, the participants receive assignments to take at home. At the end of the training, each participant has a personal prevention plan. The aim of the training is that the participant will relapse less often and less quickly into a depression. The training can be given in a group as well as individually.
During the training the therapist and client pay attention to dysfunctional schemas and use fantasy exercises (imagination) and positive schemata to challenge these schemata. We also train how to better store and retrieve positive feelings, cognitions and experiences. The training results in a tailor-made prevention plan.
