Theory
You need to explain what CBT is, what the learning principles are (classical, operant, and vicarious learning); how cognitive processes are viewed; and how behavioral and cognitive interventions are used and the theories behind those interventions. You need to define the constructs that are used, e.g., self-efficacy. human agency, schemas, etc. You need to describe the history of behavioral and cognitive behavior theories and therapies, how they evolved, and important historical and current figures. Many CB therapists view themselves as cognitive behavior therapists with Bandura’s Social Cognitive Theory as their basic theory, as it explains cognitive processes, learning principles, and human agency and consciousness. Others may view themselves as using one particular therapy, such as CT, ACT, or DBT.
My specific approach is Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). So, explain how that approach was developed, the specific therapy theory, what makes it unique as a CBT, and how it differs from other CBT’s. If this specific therapy is applicable to a limited set of disorders, then you need to identify the other therapies and their basic theories/principles that you will use for other disorders commonly seen in practice. In other words, you cannot select a theory/therapy limited to a small subset of disorders. For example, you cannot use as your overall therapy as Cognitive Processing Therapy, as it is limited to PTSD.
Research
In your review of the research you will need to discuss the empirical literature on CBT and any specific theory you use, such as ACT. You need to look at not just outcome research but also research on the theoretical constructs the theory proposes. Again, provide a critique that demonstrates your ability to think critically.
