    Abstract

    This article presents a panel discussion on the integration of homework assignments into cognitive behaviour therapy sessions. The panel comprised experts in research and practice who had been invited as keynote presenters for the 32nd National Conference for the Australian Association of Cognitive and Behaviour Therapy. Experts responded to questions about the definition of homework, the mechanism by which homework produces its effects, and the relative importance of homework adherence for effective therapy. Interwoven through the discussion was an emphasis on a collaborative approach to homework, as well as specific recommendations for the integration of homework into sessions. Selected case illustrations were also discussed.
