Family Treatment with an Acting-Out Adolescent

  • Yona Teichman


Cognitive therapy was conceptualized and developed as an individual modality of therapy for treating depression (Beck, Rush, Shaw, & Emery, 1979). Despite the fact that Beck et al. (1979) attributed great importance to the interpersonal context, they perceived the patient as an “individual thinker.” According to their definition, the model they presented was an “autonomous cognitive model” that was “divorced from the current environment” (p. 22). In the decade that followed, cognitive therapy was applied to a wide variety of symptoms and psychopathologies, and expanded from solely individual to group and family intervention.
