Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a mixture of both Cognitive Therapy (CT), which deals with a person’s thoughts and Behavioral Therapy (BT), which concentrates on an individual’s overt or outside personality. According to Barbara P. Early and Melissa D. Grady, CT specializes in the mental process that can affect an individual’s feelings and behavior, while BT is focusing on the external environment that can cause the behaviors, such as a stimulus (Early & Grady, 2016). The use of the two therapies together allows the
My role as the clinician is quite important. The primary task is to engage the client in identifying cognitive errors, refuting them, and replacing them with more adaptive thoughts. A sound therapeutic relationship is necessary for effective therapy, but not the focus of the therapy. Many forms of other counseling believe that the main reason people get better in therapy is because of the positive relationship between the therapist and client. Cognitive-behavioral therapists believe it is important to have a good, trusting relationship, but I know that is not nearly enough. We believe that the clients change because they learn how to think differently and they act on that learning. Therefore, CBT tries and focuses on teaching rational self-counseling skills. CBT is the teamwork that exists between the therapist and the client. This form of therapy is used to seek ways of learning what their clients want out of life and then helping their clients achieve those goals. The therapist's role is to listen, teach, and encourage, while the client's roles is to express concerns, learn, and implement that learning (Pucci1).
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of therapy that aims to help a person manage their problems by changing how they think and act. It is a problem solving approach which recognizes that clients have a behavioral
Firstly, one strength of the counselling relationship which makes it the most important factor is its effectiveness. The counselling relationship allows client and counsellor to agree on tasks and goals (Colin Feltham 2010). Through the relationship the client can become aware of their problems and work with the counsellor to find solutions. The relationship works well in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as it combines interpersonal and technical factors to result in a favourable outcome (Glovozolias 2004). CBT is action orientated therapy used to change faulty thinking patterns to help clients overcome mental disorders such as depression. (Whisman 1993) Discussed five studies that looked at the relationship and CBT in cases of depression; three studies found the therapeutic relationship significant for positive outcome. Unfortunately, in CBT value is placed on technique and therefore there is not much research on the effect of the counselling relationship in this therapy. Although, the relationship is vital in person centred therapy, as it emphasises the importance of the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client. In person centred therapy the counsellor must find ways of using the relationship to highlight issues in the clients functioning. Person centred therapy was introduced by Carl Rodgers and is one of the most widely used therapies as it focuses on the client's thoughts, feelings, behaviours and needs.
CBT has no set definition but can be viewed as a scientific approach towards the understanding and improvement of human condition. Due to the advancement in the understanding of CBT, many different types of models have come into place (Rakovshik & McManus, 2010; Shafran et al, 2009) . As evidence based practice, it has become very popular and is at a rise due to its ability for causality in elicits situations and experiences. Despite some great success, not only dealing with addiction but has also proven effectiveness with psychoanalytic approach, it still holds some defects. In this paper, CBT approaches will further be analyzed and tested upon its effectiveness and how they have been criticized for further improvements.
Unlike Person-Centred therapy Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a scientific model founded in the 1960’s by Aaron Beck. It joins the theories of both Cognitive therapy and behavioural. He noticed that many of his counselling clients had an “Internal dialogue” (Beck, 1979) that was often negative and self-defeating and influenced behaviour. He realised that by working on these internal dialogues and making them positive it could effectively lead to positive changes in the behaviour of the clients. CBT focuses on the images, self-belief and attitudes held by the client and how these things can affect the client’s
This paper will examine the theories of two prominent Psychologist; Carl Roger and Aaron Beck. Cognitive Behavior Therapy was developed by Aaron Beck who believed that individuals ‘were a by product of their environment. Person Center Therapy understand that people can use their strengths and resources to solve their own problems. This paper will describe how these two models can be used to integrate therapeutic practices. This paper will also critique and give multi-cultural perspective from a Christians world view.
CBT is defined as a form of mental health based counseling, focusing on errors of cognition and perception. It usually involves a limited number of individual outpatient sessions (Park et al., 2013). This form of therapy, “helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way,” (“Cognitive behavioral therapy”, 2014, para. 1).
The main goal of CBT is to help individuals and families cope with their problems by changing their maladaptive thinking and behavior patterns and improve their moods (Blackburn et al, 1981). Intervention is driven by working hypotheses (formulations) developed jointly by patient, his/her family and therapist from the assessment information. Change is brought about by a variety of possible interventions, including the practice of new behaviors, analysis of faulty thinking patterns, and learning more adaptive and rational self-talk skills. (Hawton, Salkovskis, Kirk, and Clark, 1989).
CBT is an integrated approach using various combinations of cognitive and behavioral modification interventions and techniques (Myers, 2005). The aim is to change maladaptive patterns of thinking and behaving that impact clients in the present (Weiten et al., 2009). From a cognitive behavioral perspective Jane would be diagnosed as having faulty thinking and dysfunctional behavioral issues suffering from depression, and anxiety in the form of Agoraphobia (Weiten et al., 2009).

Therapy is the one of the means to help people treated from their mental and emotional problem through a series of interaction with the therapist and client. The therapist must have a professional skill about to use different method of therapy to help the client face and solve their own problem more effectively. Every therapy has different characteristics, also has their advantages and shortcomings. In this essay, I would like to compare and contrast psychoanalysis and cognitive behavioural therapy to find out the difference about their concept and process of therapy.
In “Cognitive Behavior Therapy: Basics and Beyond”, Judith Beck (2011), the daughter of Aaron Beck, highlights ten basic principles that all CBT therapists should follow. The
Humanistic theory by Carl Rogers, is based on an ensemble of theories and methods largely having the origins in humanistic psychotherapy, but adapted to the specific of activity from the social work areas, the solving of the socio-human and collective problems and not only the individual problems. Regardless of the specific and nature of the object of intervention humanistic theory uses this unlimited and miraculous resource of the human or humane personality. This is the reason why its theories and methodologies operate with concepts like human being, soul, person, self, empathy, compactly, personal development, spirituality, humane personality, even when aims objectives at the family, organizational or community level. humanistic social work is, ultimately, the representation of the individual client as personality, soul, being, and moving in the background the representation as body or through elementary social relationships, as well as the representation of the collective client as a sympathetically interaction between persons with souls, personalities, as human beings. Humanistic traits like empathy and spirituality, through creativity, aesthetic sensibility, authentic faith, concern for truth, balanced personality will transmit and stimulate the development of the human/ humane features at the client’s level too, factually transmitting positive energy, happiness, aesthetic, intellectual, spiritual, and playful qualities. Also, thus contributing to its personal development, increasing the self-esteem, social consciousness, the capacity of initiative and social autonomy - fulfilling the true mission of the humanistic social work practice. So, humanistic work prioritizes the human personality as resource and operates with an empathetic professional personality concept that combines the human humane personality with the pragmatic positive personality. The focus of the humanistic curriculum is the goal is to train and cultivate the empathetic-professional personality, the ability to resonate to the sufferings and the human problems of customers and display qualities such as empathy, presence of spirit, the high level of
