The topic for this meeting was Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; Optimizing Our Nature and was presented by FA member Robert W. Collins, PhD, PC. Dr. Collins began by comparing/contrasting the grand scope of the evolutionary view, which encompasses the change and adaptation of species through geological time spans with that of what Cognitive Behavior Therapy (hereafter rendered as CBT) addresses.
