Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy? 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a form of talk therapy that focuses on our thoughts and behaviors. It looks at how those two are connected and where we can make changes to help ourselves feel better. It works on not only changing thinking patterns, but also behavioral patterns.

CBT is based on several core principles, including:

  1. Psychological problems are based, in part, on faulty or unhelpful ways of thinking.
  2. Psychological problems are based, in part, on learned patterns of unhelpful behavior.
  3. People suffering from psychological problems can learn better ways of coping with them, thereby relieving their symptoms and becoming more effective in their lives
