Abstract

Hobbis and Sutton attempted to integrate Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) with the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB). The possibility of such an integration portends exciting opportunities since behavioral interventions have had limited impact on behavior change. The integration, however, may more easily occur if Hobbis and Sutton had selected a formulation of the TPB that incorporated emotional variables, which is a primary focus of CBT. Furthermore, more work may be necessary to integrate the specific cognitive constructs between CBT and the TPB. Empirical research will be necessary to validate that the integration occurred in a meaningful way.
