The Skilled Client Model
The skilled client model

Adaptation CHT and mental cultivation CHT can both be approached within the framework of the skilled client psychotherapy and counselling process model or, more briefly, the skilled client model. Therapists using the skilled client model are practitioner-researchers who, within the context of accepting, affirming and collaborative working relationships, assist clients to improve specific mind skills and communication/action skills in order to manage current and future problems more effectively and to become more fully human. Improving clients' skills can entail releasing skills already in their repertoires, lessening poor skills, and initiating and/or improving good skills. Box 7.1 shows the stages and phases of the skilled client model.
