Cognitive Therapy Focusses on Cognition and Behaviour

The cognitive model of emotional disorders is central to every aspect of cognitive therapy: the formulation, intervention planning and change processes. Thus, the therapist seeks to understand the client's presenting problems in terms of maladaptive beliefs and behaviours and develops an intervention plan that will effect changes in the presenting problems through changes in beliefs and behaviours. When successes and difficulties are encountered in the therapeutic process these are formulated in terms of maladaptive beliefs and behaviours, and therapy proceeds accordingly.
