Cognitive behavioral family therapy is now considered to be a mainstream approach accepted by contemporary family therapists worldwide. This chapter traces the evolution of cognitive behavioral family therapy and offers some brief discussion on its empirical support in the professional literature. The chapter proceeds to highlight family schema and cognitive and behavioral interventions, as well as interventions for deficits and excesses in emotional response in family relationships. An emphasis is placed on employing cognitive behavioral family therapy within a systems framework, and on its integrative potential for use with other modalities of therapy. The overall effectiveness of the cognitive behavioral model with families is discussed at the conclusion of the chapter.
