Cognitive Behaviour Therapy: Again CBT also owes a lot to Psychoanalysis, but focuses more on the interaction between thoughts, feeling and actions. Aaron Beck was a psychoanalyst who built on Robert Ellis’ Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT) to establish his own branch of therapy known as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). The concept behind it is to influence feelings and behaviour by influencing one’s thought patterns. It is a directive form of therapy, which employs relaxation techniques, reality testing and psycho-educational work around the thoughts, feelings and actions triad (Hawthorn, K., Salkovskis, P. M., Kirk, J. & Clark, D. 1989). The core work of CBT is to diminish negative thinking. CBT is a widely used form of therapy and has been shown to be very effective.
