Others believing that social influence should be more subtle and that individuals should be more subtle and that individuals should participate more in changing themselves, encourage clients to discuss their own irrational thinking and then gently lead them to discover more rational ways of regarding the world. Meichenbaum’s Cognitive-Behaviour Modification: Meichenbaum has shifted in a “constructivist” direction, emphasizing the narrative organization of experience. The term constructivist is used “to encompass the broad panoply of perspectives that emphasize those processes by which meaning is constructed by human beings in personal, interpersonal, and social contexts. EVALUATING THE COGNITIVE PARADIGM: Criticisms; the concepts on which it is based (eg; schema) are abstract and not always well defined. Cognitive explanations of psychopathology tend to focus more on current determinants of a disorder and less on its historical antecedents.
