The article offers advice for psychotherapists to become more focused and effective in their practice. The areas that clients must address in therapy include cognitions, actions, relaxation and emotional expression (CARE). The therapist can begin helping his client develop a new point of view by distinguishing the cognitions that are shaping his perspective of the problem. CARE cannot occur without emotional expression because feelings are central to psychotherapy.
