Sample text

The problem is compounded by the f act that practitioners in the main constituent disciplines (behaviour therapy, cognitive therapy) tend each to claim that they have been incorporating the essential principles of the other for years. It is true that behaviour therapists were often concerned with interpretations and attributions—how could they not be since language is inevitably the medium of communication about problems and what might be done about them? Similarly, cognitive therapists often give their clients homework assignments and use behavioural indicators alongside thinking-style changes to evaluate outcomes.

Ends-means confusions are rife in therapeutic work (revealed particularly in social work by client-opinion research) and regular reviews of progress against pre-negotiated objectives appear to be our best means for keeping them at bay. Whether regarded as collateral or intrinsic, such case-management factors undoubtedly make a substantial contribution to the outcomes achieved in effectiveness research and are probably best thought of as necessary but not sufficient conditions for change (see Macdonald and Sheldon 1992).

Blakemore 1977:85) Popper and Eccles (1977)—a philosopher collaborating with a neurologist— have described the effects of the almost unimaginably complex development hinted at 36 PHILOSOPHICAL IMPLICATIONS here as ‘materialism transcending itself’. Their view is that a quantitative extension of function to this seemingly near-infinite degree results ‘without any violating of the laws of physics’ in qualitatively different effects. Behaviourism does not seek to deny the subjective importance of consciousness, rather to challenge views of this phenomenon which represent it as some sort of disconnected entity, impervious, when it chooses, to environmental influence: The objection to inner states is not that they do not exist, but that they are not relevant in a functional analysis.
