Craske (Department of Psychology and Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, UCLA) informatively addresses this widely practiced form of therapy with respect to its history, theoretical concepts and applications arising from discoveries with respect to classical and instrumental conditioning. Focusing on behavioral and cognitive interventions dealing with maladaptive and dysfunctional behaviors, as well as the promotion of adaptive and functional attitudes affecting behavior, "Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy" the newest addition to the American Psychological Association's outstanding 'Theories of Psychotherapy' series.
