Cognitive Therapy of Anxiety Disorders pdf free download. The cognitive model of psychopathology and psychotherapy developed by Beck and his collaborators (e.g., Beck, Emery, & Greenberg, 1985; Beck, Freeman, & Associates, 1990; Beck, Rush, Shaw, & Emery, 1979) posits that an individual’s affective state is highly influenced by the manner in which the individual perceives and structures his or her experiences. According to this
model, patients who suffer from anxiety disorders tend to misperceive particular stimuli and/or life situations as being far more threatening or dangerous than they actually are. Further, such patients compound their problems by underestimating their abilities to cope with these stimuli and situations, thus causing a reduction in self-esteem.
