Informally, they can observe the manner in which their client behaves in session and responds to them. For example, Shane’s guardedness and hostility were important pieces of data that his therapist observed in their initial appointment, which shaped her case conceptualization and the manner in which she responded to him. Many therapists assimilate behavioral observations from the first visits with a client into a Mental Status Examination, documenting their client’s appearance, attitude, behavior, mood and affect, speech, thought process, thought content, perception, cognition, insight, and judgment (Trzepacz & Baker, 1993).

Failure to do so has the potential to disrupt development of a sound and collaborative therapeutic alliance. Moreover, in some instances, cognitive and behavioral patterns of responding might be viewed by the therapist as abnormal or maladaptive, when in fact they are normative for the client’s family system and community. Cognitive behavioral therapists always respect the cultural beliefs that clients hold and do not push them to adopt a different set of beliefs, even if the therapist thinks that another set of beliefs would be more adaptive.

Thus, the case conceptualization is not “set in stone”; rather, it is an evolving understanding of their clients’ clinical presentation and background factors that can account for the clinical presentation that is refined over time, becoming richer and more intricate as therapeutic work deepens. Cognitive behavioral therapists are cognizant of their client’s case conceptualization as they are working in session with clients because they are continuously integrating information into and refining the conceptualization as their work proceeds.
