We first trace the influence of previous work in personality theory and cognitive sciences on cognitive models of clinical disorders, noting the central role of the schema contruct. Issues such as stimulus generation, subject selection, and the importance of priming cognitive structures b...

This paper outlines a theoretical rationale that will facilitate selection of targets most likely to lead to meaningful clinical change. Specific technical guidelines, designed to facilitate the therapist's efforts to identify such targets, are proposed. These guidelines derive from a proposed hierarchical model of cognitive structure, which stipulates that cog...
