In this video from Beck Institute’s recent CBT Workshop for Students and Faculty, Dr. Aaron Beck discusses cognitive behavior therapy within the context of systems of psychotherapy. Dr. Beck explains that CBT is rooted in a broad theoretical framework and refined and reformulated for each disorder. Therapeutic strategies are selected based on the individual conceptualization of the patient. According to Dr. Beck, basic methods of CBT, such as cognitive reframing, can be adapted for more complex cases. He refers to his recent research on schizophrenia to demonstrate how to adapt CBT strategies within the theoretical framework.
