Practical Applications of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Here's link to a free online collection  of  articles from the Newsletter of the New Jeresey Association for Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, which explains the application of CBT to OCD, panic attacks, eating disorders, personality disorders, low self esteem, social anxiety, couples therapy, depression, personalitey disorders, and many other appplications. There is also a good article entitled, "How to Break Dysfunctional Cognitions," which, IMHO, it would be dysfunctional to dismiss ahead of time without reading.

CBT and hypnosis, I believe, are natural allies, since they both deal with the alteration of belief structures; and research seems to show that they both can be more effedtive when they are used together and "one hand washes the other."
