What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
CBT, or , is a form of evidence-based that’s psychotherapy widely recognized for focusing on the connection between a person’s behavior, thoughts, and feelings. Though it can be used as a standalone treatment, it can be added to other therapeutic approaches to treat various mental health conditions such as anxiety, eating disorders, depression, substance abuse issues, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and phobias.
Rooted in the idea that thoughts influence one’s actions, CBT’s goal is to help individuals identify and change negative thought patterns that contribute to their distress and develop realistic, positive thoughts to better adapt or react to situations. These are all achieved by teaching the client CBT techniques like problem-solving, goal-setting, self-monitoring, and more.
After the treatment involving CBT exercises and sessions, the individual is expected to be more aware of their thinking pattern and be more capable of using their equipped skills to shift their negative mindset into a better one for healthier well-being.
