Munro, Sara L., Baker, John and Playle, John (2005) Cognitive behaviour therapy within acute mental health care: A critical appraisal. International Journal of Mental Health Nursing, 14 (2). pp. 96-102. ISSN 1445-8330

This paper examines the evidence for the use of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) within acute mental health-care settings. Through the provision of a literature review the authors critique the research into the effectiveness of CBT when delivered within acute mental health-care settings, to clients who are acutely psychotic. The review concludes with recommendations for future research to expand the current evidence base.
