Reflexivity and CBT

I am exploring how empirical and theoretical work on the internal conversation can contribute to the practice and theory of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I argue that the enormous literature on CBT (particularly clinical data) represents a unparalleled resource  to theorists of the internal conversation. Conversely I argue that the internal conversation can act powerfully as a meta-theory for CBT, providing the missing ontology of the person which would enable practitioners to better identify underlying differences in the practice of cognition, as well the differential potentials for behavioral change and stasis which characterize the mental life of different human beings.
