Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a short-term, problem-oriented treatment modality that is based on the belief that our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are related closely. For example, if you are having a negative thought related to people not liking you, then you might feel sadness or anger, which can cause you to isolate yourself from others. CBT also involves focusing on the present rather than the past. In CBT, clients can benefit from learning how to identify and reframe negative thinking patterns, change maladaptive behaviors, and build specific skills that they can practice between sessions to help them overcome their problems.
CBT can be used to help treat children, adolescents, and adults with a wide range of problems, including:
- Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Bipolar Disorder
- Chronic Pain
- Eating Disorders
- Grief and Loss
- Low Self-Esteem
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Panic Disorder
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) & Trauma
- Relationship Issues
- Substance Abuse
