Cognitive Behavioural Analysis System of Psychotherapy (CBASP)




CBASP is a treatment for chronic ddreamstime_xxl_mindfulness.jpgepression.  CBASP helps sufferers to examine the consequences of their interpersonal behavior. By learning to rely less on assumptions stemming from past relationships, and more on the actual environment, people find that they are better able to make more effective assumptions about others. During this retraining, patients become perceptually connected to their environment. Perceptual connectedness means that the person becomes accessible to feedback from others, and learns to get more out of interpersonal interactions. In a way, CBASP helps people to get what they want (i.e. have more meaningful rewarding relationships) from others. This goal is accomplished through a technique known as situational analysis
