Cognitive Therapy in the Year 2000

  • Arthur Freeman
  • Frank M. Dattilio


As this casebook comes to a close, two important aspects of the present volume have, we hope, become obvious. The first is the diversity of theoretical and technical positions represented by the contributors. It is interesting that there are differences of opinion, and a wide range of techniques that have come together under the broad banner of cognitive therapy. The second is the clear and active debunking of several of what Freeman (1986) and Freeman, Pretzer, Fleming, and Simon (1990) have called “the myths of cognitive therapy.”
