Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral TherapyCognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a widespread therapeutic approach to alleviating mental health disorders, substance abuse disorders and other medical problems. The goals in the practice of CBT are to help patients change negative thought patterns and also help them change negative behavior patterns in their life that may have contributed to them seeking treatment. Therapists that employ CBT understand that psychological and behavioral problems stem from patterns of thought that may be incongruent with positive behavioral outcomes and they work with clients to help them recognize this and find other ways of positively coping.

To understand how CBT is practiced, Stefan G. Hall, Ph.D., et al, explain,

“Consistent with the medical model of psychiatry, the overall goal of treatment is symptom reduction, improvement in functioning, and remission of the disorder. In order to achieve this goal, the patient becomes an active participant in a collaborative problem-solving process to test and challenge the validity of maladaptive cognitions and to modify maladaptive behavioral patterns. Thus, modern CBT refers to a family of interventions that combine a variety of cognitive, behavioral, and emotion-focused techniques. Although these strategies greatly emphasize cognitive factors, physiological, emotional, and behavioral components are also recognized for the role that they play in the maintenance of the disorder.”

In this same article, they provide data indicating CBT is effective in the treatment of a wide variety of medical issues, mental health and substance abuse disorders such as anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, chronic medical conditions, bi-polar disorder, personality disorders, and a wide variety of addictions.
