Book Preface

This book is the result of many years of research and clinical practice. Her appearance on the light is made possible through the efforts of many, many people – clinicians, researchers and patients. Paying tribute to the contribution of individuals, I suppose also, that in itself cognitive therapy is a reflection of the changes that have for many years taken place in the field of behavioral sciences and only took shape in the leading trend in recent years. However, we can’t accurately assess the role played by the so-called “cognitive revolution in psychology” in the development of cognitive therapy.

Clinical observations, experimental and correlational studies, as well as ongoing attempts to explain the data, Contradictions of psychoanalytic theory led me to a complete rethinking of the psychopathology of depression and other neurological disorders. Finding that depressed patients do not have a need for suffering, I began to look for other explanations of their behavior that only “look” as the need for suffering. I wondered: how else can you explain their relentless self-flagellation, their steadily negative perception of reality and what seemed to be told about the presence of auto-hostility, namely their suicidal desires?

Remembering his experience of the “masochistic” dreams of depressed patients, which, in fact, was the starting point of my research, I began to look for alternative explanations for the fact that depressive dreamer constantly sees himself in the loser dream – he either loses some valuable thing, or It can’t achieve some important goals, or appears defective, ugly, repulsive. Listening to how patients describe yourself and your experience, I noticed that they systematically reinterpreting the facts for the worse. These interpretations, shaped similar to the number of their dreams, made me think that depressed patients is inherent in a distorted perception of reality.

Thanks to several studies, we filled up our knowledge about how depressed patients evaluate their current expertise and its prospects. These experiments have shown that under certain conditions a series of successfully completed jobs can play a huge role in changing the patient’s negative self-concept and thereby eliminate many symptoms of depression.

Cognitive therapy is constantly used in certain phases of the psychotherapeutic process in combination with other techniques. The cognitive approach to defects in the emotional sphere transforms the point of view of individuals to their own identity and problems. This type of therapy is convenient because it seamlessly blends with any psychotherapeutic approach orientation, is able to complement other methods and significantly enrich their effectiveness.
