The cognitive behavioral analysis system of psychotherapy (CBASP) is designed specifically for chronic depression and is based on Donald Kiesler’s interpersonal model, with the role of the psychotherapist being administered from a disciplined personal involvement perspective. To achieve its learning goals, CBASP has been operationalized such that the two major goals are learned in an acquisition learning manner criterion. Patients are taught throughout treatment that the lessons of CBASP are intended to be “lifelong” lessons that must be practiced daily to reduce psychopathology. This chapter reviews CBASP’s fundamental tenets, assessment, applicability, change processes, therapy relationship, and key methods. The chapter concludes with a detailed case example, outcome research, and future directions.
