In this question and answer session at the Beck Institute 2011 workshop for Active Duty and Veteran Military, Dr. Aaron Beck describes cognitive and behavioral similarities which can be discerned across disorders. He notes that in insomnia, GAD, PTSD, depression, anxiety disorders and recovery from post-concussive syndrome, patients who have the greatest difficulty re-establishing pre-morbid functioning tend to over focus on internally generated cues about the self (uncomfortable symptoms), evidence dysfunctional beliefs about their functioning, and consequently engage in less productive behavior. This "triad" - self focus, dysfunctional beliefs and dysfunctional behaviors - tends to contribute to difficulties recovering and are the focus of CBT.
