Default Re: Beck Meets Freud? (Cape Cod, July, 2005)

I too am very interested in hearing your thoughts. I know that Ellis has written some about that topic. He, basically, states that the unconscious probably exsists, and that people probably do engage unconscious defense mechanisms. He states that it may be helpful to recongnize and identify these occurances (for the client to gain some 'insight')But, that for therapy to be most effective, it is important for the client to realize their conscious and unconscious self defeating beliefs, to evaluate them, and to act against them.
