- Introduction: Beck's Life in Brief. Part I: Theory. Prelude: Beck and His Group. Cognitive Therapy is Organised Around a Formulation. Different Problem Areas are Marked by Specific Cognitive Themes. Cognitive Therapy Varies According to the Areas to Which it is Applied. Cognitive Functioning is Organised around the Existence of Deep Schemas. It is Helpful to Understand the Evolutionary Underpinnings of Many Psychological Problems. Beck Describes a Variety of Levels and Types of Cognition. Cognitive Distortions Play a Key Role in Emotional Problems but not Irrational. Images also Contain Key and Distorted Cognitions. Cognitions, Emotion and Behaviour Interact with Mutual and Reciprocal Influence on Each Other. Safety Behaviours, Including Avoidance, Reassurance Seeking and Hyper-vigilance Play a Crucial Role in Maintaining Anxiety. Strategies that Address Negative Attention Bias Strengthen the Cognitive Therapy Model. Meta-cognition: The Way People Think About Thinking also Influences the Way They Feel and Behave. Promoting Mindfulness and Mindful Attention to Negative Thoughts is Likely to Form a Major Part of Cognitive Therapy in Future. Beckian Epistemology has a Clear Process for Developing Appropriate Therapeutic Knowledge for Cognitive Therapists to Follow. Cognitive Therapy is Strengthened by Protocol Development and the Specification of Cognitive Therapy Skills. Conclusion to Part I. Part II: Practice. Using Cognitive Therapy to Focus Work.
