Cognitive Behavior Therapy in Health Psychology

  • Robert B. MeagherJr.


Cognition is “in”! In developmental psychology, in social psychology, and now in behavior therapy—the bastion of “behavior”—a change is under way whose end has not yet been charted. Behavior therapy, which was developed as a protest against “mentalistic” and “nonscientific” therapies, particularly psychoanalysis, has been recast as cognitive behavior therapy in those “unobservable” terms it so vehemently eschewed 25 years ago. With its progenitor, which has flourished beside it, it shares mainly an interest in behavior as outcome.
