The article briefly discusses the development of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), and makes mention of the important contributions made by South Africans in this regard. An outline of the CBT approach is provided. There follows an illustration of this as applied to the treatment of depression. The effectiveness of CBT is substantiated by numerous studies. Further research should be done in the local context to in an endeavour to enhance its effectiveness in the previously disadvantaged community. South Africans should once again contribute to the development of this effective therapy, and continue the pioneering work done by their countrymen.
