Contemporary Issues in Defining the Mechanisms of Cognitive Behavior Therapy

About this Research Topic

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has emerged as a system of psychotherapy that can be flexibly adapted to meet the needs of a range of clinical populations. That flexibility is a definite strength, but also presents us with a challenge; to define precisely how CBT works, for whom, and under which relational contexts. Despite considerable interest in elucidating the mechanisms by which CBT works, the science underpinning the delivery of CBT is still emerging.

The goal of this Research Topic is to examine the mechanisms that contribute to this evolving understanding of CBT, not limited to, studies of processes and the underlying pathways of change. Our aim is to feature conceptual, empirical, or review manuscripts that introduce new paradigms, innovative research methodologies, as well as clinical interventions studies.

Topics may include:
• Studies of the overall efficacy, predictors and moderators of treatment outcome
• Common versus specific factors that determine outcomes and learning processes
• Biomarkers and prognostic indicators that predict (differential) outcomes
• Innovative models for tailoring CBT

We welcome manuscripts with a conceptual or methodological focus and papers reporting new empirical findings.


Keywords: Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Mechanism, Process, Outcome, Mental Health
