Example text

But however natural-seeming and taken-for-granted such notions are, they raise a number of awkward logical problems. How, for example, can a non-physical, quasi-spiritual entity give rise to something as tangible as behaviour? Speaking metaphorically: what kind of cerebral ‘clutch mechanism’ connects and disconnects mental activity and physical activity? How can an event of any kind, even a thought, arise spontaneously out of nothing as an uncaused happening? Certainly such things are not within our everyday experience of the rest of the material world.

Nevertheless, I am conscious that, whatever their merits, many social workers turn away from these approaches on vague philosophical grounds—aesthetic grounds might be a better phrase, since objections are rarely accompanied by the disciplined logical analysis that real philosophy requires. In short, they just don’t like the look and sound of anything ‘behavioural’ because of what they think it implies about the nature of human BEHAVIOUR THERAPY IN A COLD CLIMATE 31 existence.

16 COGNITIVE-BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY Hanrahan capture the service-input differences of this work in the following quotation: In brief, one is struck by the dominance of structured forms of practice in these experiments—that is, of practice that takes the form of wellexplicated, well-organized procedures usually carried out in a stepwise manner and designed to achieve relatively specific goals. The influence of the behavioral movement is quite apparent and pervasive. (Reid and Hanrahan 1980:11–12) These findings mirror results in psychotherapy and clinical psychology, but the issue has been raised as to whether it is the behavioural techniques and their various adaptations per se that were responsible for improved results, or the way in which the therapeutic encounters were organized?
