I chose this theory because I felt that it is the one I was most likely going to use, when I become a licensed psychologist. The multiple views and varied techniques available for the client make it seem like the one theory that can be tailor fit for each individual. What I found out through my research; however, is that the cognitive-behavioral approach does not dig deeply into the 'why' someone has the beliefs they do. The 'why' is what drew me to the field of psychology and human services in the first place, so I need to investigate other theories, career opportunities, and techniques to find 'my right fit'. Ideally, I would like to investigate the criminal mind more closely and help the prison population overcome their psychopathological issues. I still feel that many of the cognitive-behavioral techniques can be useful in discovering the 'why', so I will likely use them in my ultimate career field.
