The primary purpose of this chapter is to abstract the main treatment components required for bringing about cognitive and emotional change when working with imagery in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). It suggests that there are three main components: maintaining a reflective stance while working with imagery, evoking disturbing imagery, and deliberately introducing incompatible information to develop new meanings. These components are all aimed towards facilitating emotional processing.
