This means that the therapist will likely focus on helping the patient engage in specific actions or behaviors that can help alleviate their symptoms. This approach is often effective in addressing immediate symptoms and providing structure and support to the patient. As the patient's symptoms improve, the focus of therapy may shift to more abstract or cognitive aspects.
