What is Cognitive behavioral analysis system of psychotherapy? The Cognitive Behavioral Analysis System of Psychotherapy (CBASP) is a form of psychotherapy developed by James P. McCullough Jr. for the treatment of chronic depression. CBASP is based on the principle that chronic depression is often caused by a person’s early experiences of rejection, leading to a pattern of interpersonal behavior that reinforces negative thinking and behavior. The goal of CBASP is to help patients break this cycle by teaching them new interpersonal skills and helping them develop more positive thought patterns. The therapy involves a structured approach to analyzing and modifying the patient’s behavior and thinking patterns, with a focus on their interactions with other people. The therapist works with the patient to identify problematic behaviors and thinking patterns, and to develop more positive, effective ways of relating to others. CBASP typically involves a one-on-one therapy session that lasts between 60 and 90 minutes, and can be conducted over a period of several months or longer, depending on the severity of the patient’s depression. It has been found to be effective in the treatment of chronic depression and is often used in combination with medication.
