Cognitive- Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment approach through research studies for several psychological issues including but not limited to anxiety disorders, alcohol and substance use, depression, and bipolar disorder. The goal of CBT is to help the patient change the way they view situations in their lives. When an individual restructures their way of thinking and then alters their behavior it creates change. Maybe not changing the circumstances of their lives, but changing the way they perceive those circumstances. A cognitive behavioral therapist tries to help the patient begin to recognize the patterns of their own thoughts and behaviors. Once the patient becomes aware of these patterns, the patient is able to make changes to those thoughts and behaviors and create healthier patterns. The clinician assists the patient by providing tools and techniques that support this process throughout treatment.
