Cognitive Behavioral therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of therapy that helps people make positive changes in their lives by changing their thinking patterns and behaviors. It’s based on the idea that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all connected and can influence each other. CBT helps people identify and change unhelpful or unhealthy thoughts and behaviors. It can help with many different types of mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. A great example of CBT is when someone is feeling anxious about a certain situation. With CBT, they can break down the situation and identify the things that are making them feel anxious. They can then challenge those thoughts and identify more helpful, rational thoughts. They can also practice relaxation techniques or coping skills to manage their anxiety. CBT has been proven to be very effective in treating mental health conditions. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, it is one of the most widely used types of therapy. Studies have shown that it can be just as effective as medication for treating depression and anxiety. Fun Fact: CBT has also been used to help people with chronic physical health conditions, such as chronic pain, diabetes, and asthma.
