Links Between Cognitive-Behavioral Hope-Building and Positive Psychology: Applications to a Psychotic Patient
Several currently popular theories have emphasized the important role of hope in well-being. This article has outlined one framework for achieving hope via the normalizing and humanizing of patients, and the use of techniques such as priming or accessibility manipulation, reattribution, and other techniques derived from or inspired by current social-cognitive theories. As such they illustrate the possibilities for enriching the repertoire of cognitive therapists that can be offered by merging concepts from positive psychology and social psychology into a more ''hopeful'' cognitive-behavior therapy. This social-cognitive approach is in line with the flexible and integrative underpinnings of cognitive therapy (Alford & Beck, 1996).
