ABSTRACT
Behavioral medicine focuses on assessment, treatment, and prevention of medical problems and promotion of health, using the behavioral sciences (e.g., International Society of Behavioral Medicine). Behavioral medicine is strongly rooted in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) both historically and in its use of CBT theories and techniques. The articles from the present special issue present the relation between cognition and behavior in both basic research and intervention studies. These articles extend the role of CBT into medical and public health settings, thereby expanding the ability of CBT therapists to help patients with medical problems and those who are at high risk for developing medical problems.
