"In this animated interview, Cognitive Therapy founder Dr. Aaron Beck shares about the experiences, people, and ideas that shaped his iconoclastic career, offering insights into the radical transformation of modern psychology over the last century. Beck discusses his process of developing cognitive therapy, from his early days as a psychoanalyst through his disillusionment with psychoanalysis and creation of a therapeutic model that reflected his research and actual experiences with clients. You will gain an understanding of his insights about depression, from its evolutionary origins and how our thinking sustains it, to how best to treat it. Addressing his thoughts on why other models of therapy persist enthusiastically despite the proven success of cognitive therapy, Beck also offers his opinions on integrative models of psychotherapy and his concerns about therapists jumping from one approach to another. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, and social work." - Supplied by publisher.
