Minotta-Valencia Lina, Carlos Minotta Valencia

This text presents in a compact way, the main theoretical formulations underlying the practice of cognitive therapy in general and the design of intervention strategies and techniques related to clinical work in particular. Schematically describes the model of cognitive approach to affective, motivational, and behavioral problems caused by dysfunctional cognitions and beliefs; persistent, irrational and disruptive. In addition to the above, the text outlines the general conceptualization of the interview, evaluation and therapeutic intervention process, through the descriptive and functional analysis of behavior.
