Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Focus on the Relationships Between Thoughts, Feelings and Behaviors

The National Alliance on Mental Illness states that, “Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of treatment that focuses on examining the relationships between thoughts, feelings and behaviors.” Using this therapy, techniques are employed in order for the individual to change their relationship with these thoughts and behaviors.

Identify Symptoms to Reduce the Impact

There are various thematic symptoms which manifest in the human conditions of struggle such as anxiety and depression. Therefore, when an individual gets better at identifying these symptoms they also increase the probability that they will be able to shift the impact that these symptoms will have on their general sense of well being.

For example, an individual may be hard on themselves during times of distress and thoughts such as, “I am no good” tend to be more frequent. Through a CBT intervention, an individual with these thoughts will be more able to challenge these thoughts or beliefs and not be as identified with them.
