Cognitive therapy has developed rapidly since the early 1970s and has become a respected and established model for conceptualizing and treating a range of emotional and behavioral problems. As the chapters of this volume attest, the theory has yielded a family of important therapeutic techniques that have proven useful in treating a number of adult disorders, including depression, generalized anxiety, panic disorder, marital problems, alcohol and substance abuse, and personality disorders.
