Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is an an evidence-based, relatively short-term, solution-focused form of behavioral treatment proven effective for numerous problems based on extensive clinical trials.
Cognitive behavior therapy is grounded in the proven understanding that much of our suffering results from the interaction of problematic thinking styles, painful emotions and ineffective behaviors.
In order to overcome destructive thinking, cognitive behavior therapy helps people identify and/or modify problematic thoughts, assumptions and beliefs. In this way, individuals learn how their maladaptive thinking is impacting their behavior. This self-discovery, guided by a well-trained cognitive behavior therapist is essential for reducing emotional suffering. Additionally, cognitive behavior therapy focuses on changing ineffective behavior patterns that are resulting in psychological distress and are contributing to the identified problem.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is much more than sitting and talking about whatever comes to mind during a session. CBT sessions are structured to ensure that the therapist and the person in treatment are focused on the different goals of each session, which in turn ensures that each and every session is productive.
