 Cognitive-Behavioral Models

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses cognitive-behavioral models for therapy. It illustrates a field that is deeply divided over fundamental questions such as the causal role of cognitions and the effectiveness of the cognitive therapies. Disagreements also persist about a wide range of less immediately practical questions, including postulating unobservables, the goals of science, epiphenomenalism, and the nature of truth, logic, explanation, and causation.

Keywords: behavior therapy; cognition; cognitive therapies; causal role
