Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive behavioral therapy is a form of psychotherapy that integrates theories of cognition and learning with treatment techniques derived from cognitive therapy and behavior therapy. CBT assumes that cognitive, emotional, and behavioral variables are functionally interrelated. Treatment is aimed at identifying and modifying the client’s maladaptive thought processes and problematic behaviors through cognitive restructuring and behavioral techniques to achieve change. Using this model, patients are educated on the relationship between his or her thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Current research supports the use of CBT for the treatment of anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and personality disorders, just to name a few.
Each cognitive behavioral therapy session will last 50 mins, and it will be recurrent weekly or bi-weekly sessions.
