Response 1: For intermitten explosive disorder therapy approaches, I discovered a study that states “structured cognitive-behavioral group therapy (CBGT), with a focus on anger management and cognitive coping, may be a promising approach to the treatment” (Costa et al, 2018). The use of structured CBGT provides specific topics for the session and a specific time frame for each topic. By engaging with the clients in this format, there is less chance the sessions will become “chit- chat” sessions or that the client(s) will become agitated. This is a newer study and may be something that could be utilized the assist with treatment of your client. The same type of structured CBT can also be applied to family therapy to assist the family to remain on task and increase focus on the healing process (Fisher, 2017) Reference Costa, A. M., Medeiros, G. C., Redden, S., Grant, J. E., Tavares, H., & Seger, L. (2018). Cognitive-behavioral group therapy for intermittent explosive disorder: description and preliminary analysis.
