politics and ideology.
Challenging the Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapies:
The Overselling of CBT's Evidence Base
The Limbus Critical Psychotherapy Conference
This is not an anti-CBT conference seeking to dismiss CBT in its
entirety. We grant that CBT is helpful for some people in some
circumstances under certain conditions.
What will be challenged is the reasoning, means & evidence used to
privilege CBT over other forms of psychotherapy.
