Abstract

The acronym CBA stands for Cognitive Behavioral Assessment and indicates an overall approach of a group of researchers who developed questionnaires for clinical assessment. This paper presents two such questionnaires and reviews their application in medical settings. CBA-2.0 is a wide-ranging battery, useful to explore most adult cases that are referred for psychological assessment in a clinical setting. It has been used in the psychological assessment of patients with physical illnesses and in psychophysiological research. CBA-H (the Hospital format) is a 147-item questionnaire for both inpatients and outpatients suffering from physical illnesses. Because of the different time lag scales, CBA-H distinguishes between the emotional states and behavioral changes linked to the recent hospitalization (or disease diagnosis) and the patient's pre-existing characteristics. Both CBA-2.0 and CBA-H have been widely used in hospitals in Italy and have succeeded in reconciling the hospital world with clinical psychology interventions. Future development rely on translations and cross-cultural research.
