Aaron Beck and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Vujisic, Zoran

Although Aaron Beck’s system has many similarities to that of Albert Ellis, Beck offers a more detailed cognitive theory of neurotic disorders. His work differs from Ellis’ Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) in more fully utilizing cognitive and behavioral methods, in being less doctrinaire in what he regards as rational and irrational (using instead the terms “adaptive” and “maladaptive” beliefs), and more importantly in encouraging a therapeutic style less combative and rigid than Ellis’ in favor of a gentler though direct Socratic questioning style.
