Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a form of therapy that has gained a great deal of attention within the last few decades. In brief, in cognitive behavioral therapy (sometimes called cognitive therapy or cognitive behavior therapy), you are taught that thoughts, emotions, and behavior are inextricably linked. The way you perceive things influences your physiological, emotional, and behavioral responses. According to the cognitive model, dysfunctional or inaccurate thoughts often underlie chronic/severe emotional and behavioral problems. Through various techniques, thoughts and behaviors are examined and modified. With practice, you learn these techniques so that you can effectively deal with your challenges on your own. In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, CBT tends to be more problem-solving oriented, time limited, and focused on the present.
