The declining benefits of CBT

Share this:

Pacific Standard  magazine reports that the benefits of cognitive behavioral therapy,  whose benefits include reducing the need  for psychotropic drugs, seem to have declined since it was developed in the ’70’s.

The magazine said that one explanation is that once it became an established technique in the ’70’s, less experienced and thus less effective therapists have been using it in increasing numbers.
