About CBT

What is CBT?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that addresses negative patterns of thought, emotion, and behavior. By understanding and re-framing these patterns, individuals can alter the way they feel and act, even if their external circumstances don’t change.

Key Principles of CBT:

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

Benefits of CBT

  1. Evidence-based: CBT is one of the most researched therapeutic methods, with evidence supporting its effectiveness for various conditions.
  2. Short-term, Goal-oriented: Typically more concise than other therapeutic approaches, CBT focuses on specific goals tailored to the individual’s needs.
  3. Skills Acquisition: Beyond just talking, CBT equips individuals with practical skills to manage their mental health.
  4. Applicable to Various Disorders: From depression and anxiety to PTSD and phobias, CBT has broad applicability.

CBT Techniques and Strategies

Some of the fundamental techniques used in CBT include:

  • Cognitive restructuring or reframing: Changing negative thought patterns.
  • Behavioral activation: Pushing patients to try out activities they might otherwise avoid.
  • Exposure therapy: Gradually facing fears in a controlled environment.
  • Journaling: Recording thoughts, emotions, and behaviors to identify patterns.
  • Relaxation techniques: Deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, and meditation.
