Recent advances

Psychotherapy continues to develop, fuelled partly by notions - not totally realistic - that it represents a more fundamental solution to problems than other therapies, such as medication, which may be seen as 'merely drugging the problem'. Indeed, the provision of mass CBT has even been suggested as a solution for social problems (http://www.strategy.gov.uk/downloads/files/mh_ layard.pdf).

Dialectical behaviour therapy for borderline personality disorder (Palmer, 2002) represents a novel way of seeking to help some of the most damaged and inaccessible psychiatric patients.

Certain software packages are already officially recommended for milder states of depression and anxiety (NICE, http://www.nice.org.uk/page.aspx?o=TA97). The Internet offers a potentially confusing mixture of harmful and helpful information for patients (Tantam, 2006); already, online CBT is in development (e.g. http://www.moodgym.anu.edu.au).
