Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a short-term problem-focused form of behavioral treatment that helps people see the difference between beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and free them from unhelpful patterns of behavior. CBT is grounded in the belief that it is an individual’s perception of events rather than the events themselves that determine how they will feel and behave in response.
With CBT, you’ll be able to adjust the thoughts that directly influence your emotions and behavior. This adjustment process is referred to as cognitive reconstructing, which happens through different CBT techniques.
Some CBT techniques are:
- Challenging beliefs
- Social, physical, and thinking exercises
