Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy Under Conditions of Routine Treatment in the General Health Care System

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  16 June 2009

Michael Linden
Free University of Berlin, Germany


The range of areas where cognitive-behavioural treatment (CBT) is applied has been considerably extended over the previous decade. This paper describes the application of CBT in the German health care system as typified by a random sample of 1,344 cases. Content analysis was used, and indicates a generally appropriate pattern of treatment strategy. Cognitive components were more prominent than behavioural ones in the description of treatments used.
