In this video from a recent CBT workshop at the Beck Institute, Dr. Aaron Beck explains that effective therapists often incorporate cleverness and creativity into guiding their patients toward correcting erroneous beliefs. Dr. Beck also discusses mistakes that inexperienced therapists sometimes make, such as jumping from misinterpretation to misinterpretation. Dr. Beck advises therapists to work through erroneous cognitions, one at a time; however, he also cautions against focusing too long on a particular cognition.
