Dr. Judith Beck Blogs on CBT for the Huffington Post

Dr. Judith Beck recently posted two blogs for the Huffington Post. Both blogs have received quite of bit of attention. In her first, The How and Why of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (posted June 29, 2010), Dr. Beck compares the empirically based Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) to the psychotherapy often portrayed on TV and in the media.   In a follow up blog, Cognitive Behavior Therapy: Myths and Realities (posted July 11, 2010), Dr. Beck addresses common misconceptions surrounding CBT.
