Default Re: A unified CBT for emotional disorders?

My understanding of CT is that identifying cognitive distortions and developing adaptive responses is the beginning of a process that eventually moves on to explore the client's attitudes, and finally their beliefs. I don't have a copy of BT handy, but based on your synopsis, it doesn't seem as if Barlow addresses these issues. If not, then I'd have to say that he is proposing a substantial change to CT -- not by addding anything new, but by removing something. Is this an accurate interpretation, or does Barlow go into this in his response to Hayes, et. al.?
