Abstract Cognitive dysregulation, often characterized by extreme, nondialectical thinking, is a core problem area identified in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and is posited to contribute to pervasive emotional and behavioral dysregulation. However, cognitive flexibility is understudied and rarely considered a direct treatment target in DBT. This paper provides clinical guidelines for increasing dialectical thinking with patients in DBT. We review the historical context of dialectical thinki...

Depression is the leading cause of disability and a major cause of morbidity worldwide, with societal costs now upwards of 1 trillion dollars across the globe. Hence, extending current efforts to augment prevention outcomes is consistent with global public health interests. Although many prevention programs have been developed and have demonstrated efficacy, studies have yet to demonstrate that CBT is effective in preventing symptoms in populations at risk for developing depression induced by ph...

While it is accepted that therapeutic relationship is a necessary condition for cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), the way a therapist adapts to that relationship based on the case formulation has not been clearly articulated. In addition, the direct effects of the therapeutic relationship and its elements require further empirical study. Achieving expert consensus on the roles and function for the therapeutic relationship is important for training, supervision, accreditation, as well as the next...

Background: Individuals with identical symptomatology may receive conflicting diagnoses, potentially leading to different treatments. The aims of this study were to assess diagnostic impressions and treatment recommendations for obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) versus schizophrenia-spectrum disorders (SSD).Methods: Participants (N = 82) were recruited from accredited doctoral programs. All participants were randomized to assess diagnostic impressions and treatment recommendations for 15 vigne...
Self-practice and self-reflection (SP/SR) is a targeted training tool that is intended to increase CBT competency in therapists. The four articles reviewed in this commentary examine the benefits of SP/SR with various types of therapists, and survey the significant obstacles faced in implementing this tool with clinicians. Collectively, these articles conclude that SP/SR is a valuable tool in improving CBT skill acquisition and preventing burnout, particularly with difficult patients, but that m...

Method: Doctoral students from APA-accredited clinical, counseling, or school psychology programs in the Greater New York Area participated. The study consisted of three assessment points; diagnostic impressions for five distinct vignettes were obtained at each of assessment. An educational OCD video inte...

OBJECTIVE: Medical settings are the primary mode of care for mental health problems; physicians' abilities with regard to psychiatric diagnosis and treatment recommendations are therefore essential. While misdiagnosis can occur across all psychiatric conditions, the heterogeneous nature of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) may make this condition at an elevated risk for misidentification. The study's aim was to assess primary care physicians' ability to identify OCD. METHOD: The study was cros...

Cognitive vulnerability models have been developed to explicate the etiology of panic and other anxiety disorders. This study takes a step forward by presenting a unified vulnerability model that incorporates a continuum of proximal and distal factors involved in the etiology of panic. The present study tested distal elements of the model, including childhood histories of vicarious and instrumental learning, and cognitive constructs such as anxiety sensitivity and perceived control. Our study fo...
