Why Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Is the Current Gold Standard of Psychotherapy

As the gold standard in psychotherapy, CBT is naturally challenged by all approaches (e.g., any approach wants to be as good as or even better than CBT). These challenges are good, as they stimulate both CBT and "competitors" to evolve. However, sometimes the criticisms are just incorrect and misplaced and therefore they should be corrected to keep the evolution/debates on the right track. In this article the authors have shown why CBT is the gold standard and what the limits of the existing gold standard and the ways to developments are.
