Socratic questioning, is a strategy of cognitive restructuring where the utility and validity of negative cognitions are addressed. To reduce avoidance behaviour in complicated grief, exposure therapy (ET) focuses on gradually exposing the bereaved to aspects of the loss (Boelen et al., 2007).

Under the motivational therapy, the counselor, and the client build a strong relationship that will enhance behavior change. In many instances, the therapy is used to help people who are engaged in self-destructive behaviors or other types of addiction such as substance abuse.
