TRIAL THERAPY

a strategized process of transient remediation, either in the formative sessions of therapy or as a group of sessions before the beginning of long-term therapy, to challenge whether or not the patient is suitable or prepared for dedication to the therapeutic process. Trial therapy is additionally utilized to evaluate whether the therapy professional believes that their remediation approach is applicable to the patient and is capable of mediating and resolving the issues at hand.

TRIAL THERAPY: "Trial therapy is often the best approach to any new therapy situation, from both sides."
