COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY (CBT)

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) focuses on your thoughts and behaviors. Changing these can have a profound impact on how you feel and how you respond. People who seek CBT can expect their therapist to be active, problem-focused, and goal-directed. Therapy will entail homework assignments, structured exercises, and specific behaviors to work on each week.

Numerous studies of CBT have proven its effectiveness in addressing a wide variety of problems, including depression, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders, and substance abuse disorders. Because CBT has excellent empirical support, and because it is straightforward and "makes sense," it has gained wide popularity with both therapists and consumers.
