What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) 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.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy involves the use of self-help skills as homework assignments to actively change thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The CBT treatment approach allows significant improvement to occur much earlier than in traditional talk therapy. As a result, cognitive behavioral therapy can help you to end treatment sooner, teaching you to become your own best resource to solve problems. Research suggests cognitive behavioral therapy is the treatment of choice for most disorders, with overwhelming data supporting CBT treatment for depression and anxiety.
