“A Guide to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)”

This video features a discussion of CBT for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder by British clinical psychologist Professor Paul Salkovskis. He was director of the Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma in London when this video was produced. Professor Salkovskis is currently Professor of Clinical Psychology and Applied Science at the University of Bath in Bath, England.Here are a couple important points Professor Salkovskis makes during this video:

  • … there is no clear line between normal and abnormal. What actually defines somebody having a disorder or a significant problem is the extent to which it interferes with their life.”
  • “CBT, in my view, isn’t just about taking bad stuff away. It’s actually about making it possible for people to reclaim their lives in terms of the good things that they want to happen.”
