This chapter describes A.T. Beck's cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for depression. Beck's is probably the most fully developed, comprehensively evaluated, and widely disseminated cognitive behavioural approach to depression. Additionally, CBT is an effective treatment for a range of acute psychiatric disorders, shows promise for severe mental illness and personality disorder, and is thus helpful not only with primary depression, but also with a range of comorbid conditions.
