What is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)?

In this article, I will briefly describe cognitive behavioral therapy. Happy reading everyone…

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) helps people identify and change patterns of ideas and behaviors that are wasteful or ineffective, replacing them with more accurate intentions and functional behaviors. It can help a person focus on current troubles and how to resolve them. It often involves practicing new skills in the “real world”. CBT can help treat a variety of disorders, including depression, anxiety, trauma-related disorders, and eating disorders. For example, CBT can help a person with depression recognize and change negative intention patterns or behaviors that contribute to depression.
