Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a state-of-the-art, highly effective approach to psychological treatment. Cognitive therapy’s elegantly simple model has proven to be the most powerful and successful type of psychological treatment in outcome studies conducted over the past several decades.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy facilitates a collaborative relationship between the patient and therapist. Together, patient and counselor develop a trusting relationship and mutually discuss the presenting problems to be prioritized and explored in therapy. In Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, the most pressing issue troubling the patient typically becomes the initial focus of treatment. As a result, the patient tends to feel relieved and encouraged that the primary problem that brought him to therapy is immediately being acknowledged and addressed. In Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, problems are tackled head-on in a very practical manner. The patient is coached on the ABC’s of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. The therapist explains the connection between thoughts and beliefs and their impact on behavior. How the patient thinks about problems determines the way in which the individual responds to various issues. It’s the manner of thinking about life’s issues that steers the patient’s way of behaving.
Cognitive theory states that human responses are governed by emotions, which actually cloud our logic. This is why changing the way we think change the way we think. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or Cognitive Behavioral Counseling (CBT) is based on the premise that our belief system, thoughts and expectations about a person or event or situation influence the way we feel. This means that the feelings we experience are not the result of or inherent in of the situation itself or that others do not cause our feelings. It means that by having certain way of thinking, we cause ourselves to feel in a certain way. This knowledge fundamentally has changed the way psychological counseling is conducted and sceintelfically proven that once we change the way we think, we can change the way we feel about the situation. As such, we can have control of our feelings, much like we have control over other choices we make in our life.
Cognitive-Behavioral therapist or CBT psychotherapist will explore the depths and source of the thoughts and feelings you carry. A good therapist will take as much time as is needed to truly, deeply, and respectfully understand and appreciate the source of a belief. It is through this understanding, not through countering, that healing happens in any therapy, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.
