The client meets with the therapist one-on-one. Together, they establish a working relationship through regular appointments whereby the therapist gets to know the client, his or her life challenges, and the strategies they employ to navigate those challenges. The therapist seeks to identify strategies that may be maladaptive and works to help the client eliminate or modify them in favor of more effective ones that will help them adapt to ongoing and future obstacles.
