Description

It is proposed that an existential approach to Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) can make a significant contribution to understanding the whole human being, while giving cognitive and behaviorally based therapy. Up to this time the existential approach has been in the hostile direction towards CBT. I propose the use if Heidegger’s existentials as a framework for conceptualizing the human being in the client and thus organizing CBT intervention. These existentials are six dimentions of human exististance - Temporality, spaciality, atunement and mood, mitsein, bodyhood, and being-towards-death. I will examine both pathological and positive aspects of the existentials and discuss possibilities for professional intervention by way of CBT. Time permitting, case studies will be presented.
