FREITAS, Sabrina Bastos de et al. Cognitive-behavioural therapy and cognitive-behavioural coaching: differences and similarities between the two approaches. Rev. bras.ter. cogn. [online]. 2014, vol.10, n.1, pp. 54-63. ISSN 1808-5687.

Cognitive-behavioral coaching (CBC) is a structured process of goal establishment and attainment that is grounded on the cognitive-behavioral principle that emotional and behavioral responses are not triggered by events per se but by the individual's interpretation of them. In this respect, the CBC is a process of identifying and unblocking cognitive patterns that difficult goal achievement, tagged to action plans targeting behavioral change. CBC has been described as an effective method for achieving results in both professional and personal dimensions of life. However, the interface of this practice with CBT has been little investigated in Brazil. Thus, the present article aims at attempting to bridge this gap by presenting and discussing some of the main similarities and differences between these two practices. It is intended that this discussion will contribute towards the strengthening of cognitive-behavioral-grounded practices beyond the clinical context in our country, with patients who do not fulfill diagnostic criteria for mental disorders or with those who simply aim at developing a more purposeful experience of living.
