Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an efficacious and efficient intervention; as such, closure encompasses an essential part of intervention planning. Chapter 9 discusses closure: how to graduate clients from CBT, arrange booster sessions, ethically terminate CBT, and, if needed, progress clients to a higher level of care. It describes reasons for why clients may become demotivated for treatment and demystifies insurance coverage and co-pays. For clients with more severe issues, Chapter 9 explains the many referral options available, like in-home family services, outpatient clinics, intensive outpatient services, partial hospitalization, acute inpatient hospitalization, and residential treatment facilities. The chapter concludes with a discussion of psychopharmacology and incorporates a multidisciplinary, consultative approach throughout.
