WHAT IS COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a short-term, highly focused therapy that has been shown to be the best treatment for numerous psychological problems. Research has shown CBT to be among the most effective treatments for depression, anxiety, relationship problems, ADD/ADHD, diet and exercise, smoking cessation, dissatisfaction with life, as well as a host of other emotional problems. Unlike traditional talk-therapy, which often focuses on early childhood, cognitive behavioral therapy is present-focused, highly goal-oriented, and active. Rather than rehashing early experiences and relationships, CBT helps people target the actual problems they face in the present, resulting in greater treatment gains achieved in a shorter period of time.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy involves the use of self-help skills as homework assignments to actively change thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. This home-practice approach allows significant improvement to occur much earlier in treatment than in traditional talk therapy. As a result, cognitive behavioral therapy can help you to make changes faster, end treatment sooner, and teach you to become your own best resource to solve problems. Overwhelming research suggests cognitive behavioral therapy is the treatment of choice for most disorders, with numerous studies supporting CBT treatment for depression and anxiety.
