Advances in Cognitive–Behavioral Research and Therapy, Volume 5 compiles assessment, treatment, and theoretical papers on cognition and behavior. This book discusses the asymmetry in the internal dialogue; reassessment of the empirical support for the rational-emotive model; and analysis of Beck's cognitive therapy for depression. The dysfunctional attitudes and a self-worth contingency model of depression; hot cognition and psychotherapy process; causal attributions in health and illness; and behavioral perspectives on the assessment and treatment of child abuse are also deliberated in this text. This publication is valuable to researchers and clinicians concerned with cognition and behavior.
