CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

A = 4

solve problems... through a goal-oriented, systematic procedure = a goal-oriented therapeutic approach

B = 6

the particular therapeutic techniques vary, but commonly may include... = The range of CBT interventions

C = 1

going through cognitive behavioural therapy is not an overnight process for clients; a typical course consists of 12-16 hour-long sessions = a slow process

SIMON plz dont ignore this question.
What do you think of the follow technique regarding "Headings".
- match the headings with patagraphes as you READ? Is it a good strategy?
(Your technique is to leave them till the end)

Rule out the answer and narrow down the possible answer.

Simon,
Thank you for replying back.
You know why I drew it to your attention. Students vary as to their capability of storing information. I mean not everybody is abe to remeber the stufss that easily. I can guarantee that a vast majority of students forget as they progress on the paragraphes. In my humble view, when it come to do headings part they are obliged to read the same linea over and over, which is presumably time-consuming factor. My opinion, anyway))

What is the answer for: Monday, December 02, 2013
IELTS Reading: paragraph headings

Read the following passage about cognitive behavioural therapy:

A) Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a psychotherapeutic approach: a talking therapy. CBT aims to solve problems concerning dysfunctional emotions, behaviours and cognitions through a goal-oriented, systematic procedure in the present.

B) The particular therapeutic techniques vary, but commonly may include keeping a diary of significant events and associated feelings, thoughts and behaviours; questioning and testing cognitions, assumptions, evaluations and beliefs that might be unhelpful and unrealistic; gradually facing activities which may have been avoided; and trying out new ways of behaving and reacting. Relaxation, mindfulness and distraction techniques are also commonly included.

C) Going through cognitive behavioural therapy is not an overnight process for clients; a typical course consists of 12-16 hour-long sessions. Even after clients have learned to recognise when and where their mental processes go awry, it can in some cases take considerable time or effort to replace a dysfunctional process or habit with a more reasonable and adaptive one. CBT is problem-focused and structured towards the client. It requires honesty and openness between the client and therapist, as a therapist develops strategies for managing problems and guiding the client to a better life.

Choose the best headings for paragraphs A, B and C from this list:

A slow process
A new type of therapeutic approach
The benefits and drawbacks of CBT
A goal-oriented therapeutic approach
CBT therapists are always honest with their clients
The range of CBT interventions

Hello, I am new in this website. I am doing the exercises but I find it frustrating to not have the true answer to the exercise, is there a way that I can see it? Should I sign up somewhere or pay? If so, would someone mind telling me where to find/do this?
Thank you!

Hi Maria,

I always put the correct answers here in the comments area the day after I posted the lesson.

If you go up about 10 or 15 comments, you should see one that says "CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON".

I hope this helps!

Thank you so much Simon. I am feeling so confident by doing these lessons.
