I am interested in the history of the idea of the unconscious in psychotherapy, particularly in cognitive-behavioral therapies. I am a certified CBT psychotherapist, working clinically in public health service and in my private practice. I recommend the article: "Unconscious processes in Aaron Beck’s cognitive theory: Reconstruction and discussion” published in "Theory & Psychology" (2020) based on archival research in Beck's Archives, Philadelphia.

The standard narrative about the origin of cognitive therapy has it that its originator, Aaron T. Beck, broke all ties with psychoanalysis and chose the evidence-based way of formulating his theory. It seems, however, that Beck’s attitude to the issue of the role and significance of latent mental processes was much more complex. The aim of this art...
Streszczenie: Standardowa narracja na temat narodzin terapii poznawczej głosi, że jej twórca Aaron T. Beck zerwał wszelkie więzi z psychoanalizą i wybrał drogę formułowania teorii opartą na eksperymen-tach naukowych. Wydaje się jednak, że podejście Becka do roli i znaczenia utajonych procesów poznawczych było o wiele bardziej złożone. Celem artykuł...
Unconscious processes in Aaron T. Beck cognitive theory according to archival and theoretical research on his work.
The concept of the unconscious is associated mainly with the psychodynamic approaches, as well as with research on latent processes in cognitive and social psychology. The aim of this article is to determine the status of this concept in Hayes’s relational frame theory (RFT) and in the interacting cognitive subsystems (ICS) theory by Teasdale and B...
The concept of the unconscious has always provoked controversy. While some psychologists treated it as a relic of metaphysics or a manifestation of psychoanalytic mysticism, others saw it as an important explanatory construct. At the heart of this conflict, there is the theory proposed by Aaron Beck, the originator of cognitive therapy. According t...

„Umysł naukowca” czy „powrót stłumionego”? Losy nieświadomości w psychoterapii poznawczej Psychoterapia poznawczo-behawioralna jest terapią głównego nurtu, nazywaną przez Pilgrima „hegemonem opieki zdrowotnej”. Jak to możliwe, że tak popularny i doceniony nurt terapeutyczny nie skupia się na przepracowaniu treści nieświadomych, które według wylicz...
According to popular opinions, the therapeutic relationship in cognitivebehavioral therapy is not as equally important as the techniques. It is often assumed that cognitive therapists view the relationship with a patient only as a prerequisite to change and that this relationship doesn't lead to change by itself and that they overlook important emo...
According to popular opinions therapeutic relationship doesn't play a significant role in cognitive-behavioral therapy. Furthermore it is frequently assumed that cognitive therapist doesn't pay attention to processes taking place during the session, focuses solely on a realization of an earlier planned protocol and convinces patient to rational thi...

The aim of the project is a reconstruction, analysis and discussion of the conceptualization of the unconscious in the cognitive-behavioral therapy from its beginnings to the end of XX century. The process of creating a cognitive theory of psychopathology by Aaron Beck in early sixties will be reconstructed paying special attention to the role of the unconscious. The aim of a dissertation is an investigation of theoretical, philosophical and cultural influences on Aaron Beck's theory and work. It will by analysed, how did he understand the unconscious contents and processes, how did he defined their structure, function, genesis and how it influenced his therapeutic practice. In the following part the theoretical assumptions on the unconscious in a later period of Beck's work and in the third wave therapies of CBT will be reconstructed and ordered. The next goal of a project is a discussion on the cognitive-behavioral conceptualization of the unconscious: comparing it with the actual knowledge of implicit processes from the area of experimental psychology and the reflexion on mutual influnce of psychotherapeutic theories and a culture of the times (especially understanding of the „self”). Such understood research work will fit in the area of history of ideas and psychological thought.
