At a recent Beck Institute Workshop, Dr. Aaron Beck, Dr. Judith Beck, and Dr. Torrey Creed discuss the central role of focus within the new generic cognitive model (See Beck, A.T., & Haigh, E.A.P., 2014). Dr. Beck further describes the inattention bias among clients and cautions about the risk of overusing refocusing to avoid unpleasant feelings.
