Chapter 10 focuses on end-of-treatment issues, such as maintaining gains, continuing to monitor depressive symptoms, addressing fears about relapse, and identifying long-term goals for continued growth and self-improvement. As clients approach the end of the self-system therapy program, it is important to recognize the progress they have made and to make plans to keep their progress going. Self-regulation is a lifelong process. Worksheets are provided to help set realistic goals for continued work after therapy and to develop a plan for maintaining progress, including work on daily goals and challenging situations. Clients often experience anxiety and uncertainty about finishing therapy. One goal of this skills-based treatment program is to provide the tools for continuing to make progress independently.
