Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) refers to a group of therapeutic techniques that can be categorized broadly as psychoeducation, cognitive restructuring, and behavioral exposure. Unlike other psychotherapeutic approaches, CBT is derived from learning laboratory experimentation rather than conjecture and theorizing. This article provides background information concerning the origins and practice of cognitive and behavioral therapies and summarizes findings from a recently completed research project at the University of Minnesota that integrates new neuroscientific findings and CBT.
