The practice of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) in an inpatient setting involves the expansion of the traditional individual psychotherapy format to a multidisciplinary team (Bowers, 1989, Davis & Casey, 1990; Shaw, 1981). Inpatients frequently present with severe, complex conditions that may require family, group, and pharmacologic interventions in addition to individual cognitive behavior therapy. An integrated cognitive-behavioral milieu can provide expanded opportunities for a patient to incorporate the principles of change that are learned in individual therapy sessions. The CBT emphasis on collaborative problem solving can also provide a cohesive organizing philosophy for the treatment staff (Schrodt & Wright, 1987).
