Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a problem-focused form of treatment acknowledging the interaction between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
CBT is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how he or she will feel and act in response.
CBT can help with:
- Panic attacks
- Obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD)
- Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Disordered eating
Many people with clearly defined behavioral and emotional concerns can reap the benefits of CBT.
With CBT, you will work to adjust the behaviors and thoughts that impact your emotional experience.
Some CBT techniques are:
- Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP)
- Cognitive Restructuring
- Challenging beliefs
- Behavioral Experiments
- Behavioral Activation
CBT sessions are structured to ensure that the therapist and the client are focused on the goals of the sessions.
