Criticisms section edits[edit]

Section on meta analyses of CBT for schizophrenia states "Several meta-analyses have shown CBT to be effective in schizophrenia,[34][56]" - only the Wykes et al is a meta analysis - the other paper is not and should be removed or replaced

Submission[edit]

Hello, this is my first edit on Wikipedia so I apologize in advance for any mistakes I make or even if the changes I suggest sounds ridiculous. I noticed that in the medical use for cognitive behavioral therapy that eating disorders appears over and over again. I wished to add something to the criticism section about that use of cognitive behavioral therapy and this therapy's problem with drop out rates. I will focus on use of cognitive-behavioral therapy to treat anorexia nervosa and how the success rates are not necessarily the highest. Here is my suggested change:

Quotes[edit]

We should paraphrase the definition not quote it and refs go after punctuation. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:20, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Reply - @Doc James: My bad on the punctuation. Old habits of APA. Regarding the paraphrasing, we have now drifted too far away from what Beck says in the CBT handbook. We're no longer paraphrasing, we are changing the definition: it's gone from it being a psychotherapy to it now being a form of brief psychotherapy, so on and so forth. CBT is the quintessential brief psychotherapy. It was the first of its kind. It's not a form of, it is. The information on this page has drifted so far from how CBT is described and presented in therapy. Now, if the wiki moderators don't care about hurting the credibility of page, then fine. But, as it stands now, the information on this page is close, however, it's not accurate. Urstadt (talk) 03:51, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
We can shorten it to "CBT is a form of psychotherapy" That makes it 100% correct and keeps it simple. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 12:06, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
