Role Play:

Role Play We will create a group scenario that is designed to help women over 18 cope with severe to moderate anxiety The group is open-ended, allowing participants to come as often as they like and for any time period. The only requirement for participation is to be female, over 18 years of age, and suffer from anxiety.

Treatment Modality:

Treatment Modality For our role play, will demonstrate CBT using the ABC Model

Open Group:

Open Group We will open our group by doing an appropriate check in with the attending members. Upon check in, one of our members will discuss a situation that demonstrates an unhealthy thought process that leads to anxiety and problematic behavior.


Discussion We will use the group process to allow other group members to speak, share, and relate to the scenario presented.


Closing Through the group process, we will aim to help the group member with the initial problem see that her anxiety is rooting from faulty thinking. If the group member can recognize the faulty thinking, she can begin to curb the problem behavior. We will then do a final recap of our discussion and close the group.
