During the first session of cue-centered therapy (CCT), the primary function of the therapist is to educate the family on the nature of the presenting condition, the short- and long-terms benefits of treatment, the structure of CCT, and the tools they will use throughout its course. Emphasis is placed on the physiological consequences of trauma and the effects of avoidance versus treatment on posttraumatic stress disorder. The concept of cues is introduced as well as several other tools used throughout the course of treatment. Psychoeducational strategies for illustrating these relationships are described and forms are presented to be used by both the family and therapist.
