Telephone Coaching and Workbooks
Trained Bounce Back community coaches assist in the teaching of problem-solving and other skills to overcome difficulties such as inactivity, unhelpful thinking, worry, and avoidance. As the participants progress through workbooks, telephone coaching provides additional support and help keep participants on track. Access to the coaching component requires a doctor’s referral.
