Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Thoughts and Feelings

 

Cognitive behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking and how you feel and what you do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause negative feelings.

The Therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments. CBT has been clinically proven to help clients in a relatively short amount of time.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is appropriate for treatment of alcoholism and other substance use issues, adjustment disorders, depression, anxiety, and other disorders where distorted perceptions or distorted thinking play a role.
