Abstract:
This presentation will start with a series of studies based upon the CBT model of psychopathology. First, I willillustrate that the architecture and processes of psychopathology are similar across differentcommontypes of psychopathology, namely, depression, anxiety and aggression. The similarities involvethose various structures and mechanisms of information processing, including cognitive distortion, dysfunctional core schemas, cognitive networks and behavioral decision, as well as preceding developmental adversities. Second, I will also show that there is however content-specificity across different types of psychopathology with respect to the types of cognitive distortion, contents of dysfunctional schemas and cognitive networks, stages of information processing, and kinds of developmental adversities within the common cognitive architecture and processes.

he second part of this presentation will describe the development of a transdiagnosticCBT (TCBT) protocol. It is in a group treatment format to maximize cost efficiency. Pilot clinical trials with samples of Chinese adults suffering from common mood disorders in Hong Kong have been ongoing. The outcomes so far have been encouraging with improvement on both depression and anxiety, as well as on positive affect and psychosocial functioning.
