Abstract

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), has its roots in behavioral therapy, experimental psychology and psychodynamic psychotherapy (PP). It has become the most intensively developed and studied psychotherapeutic approach in recent decade. The integration between cognitive and behavioral therapy has been gradually developed. Unfortunately, the analogical processes between cognitive and psychodynamic approaches did not take place yet. The progress in CBT is a challenge for the psychodynamic therapists, however, there is no good enough framework for integration of CBT and psychodynamic psychotherapy achievements. The paper presents an outline of metarationale for a wide psychotherapeutic approach including cognitive-behavioral therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
