Summary

This final chapter of the volume samples contemporary views on acceptance and mindfulness in cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). To provide a context for the contributions to this volume, the chapter begins with a brief history of CBT, which is followed by another contextual framework based on relevant observations coming from the sociology of science. It then moves on to comment on what is new in CBT, particularly with respect to the role of cognition, behavior, and emotion. This is followed by a commentary on the growing movement to delineate empirically based principles of change that transcend varying intervention procedures, and ends with some thoughts about where we go from here.
