Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment option that was developed through decades of research and psychological concepts. When dealing with conditions such as anxiety and depression, CBT is one of the most effective treatments available. For those that suffer from mild anxiety, many successfully recover without the need for any medication based on the direct and focused nature of CBT. Although it is a great option for those that suffer from these specific conditions, CBT is not limited. It can successfully address issues regarding self-esteem, addiction, eating disorders, chronic pain, and so many other psychologically-based conditions and disorders.

Top citazioni

  • The way you think and behave are not independent of one another. If you change your perspective regarding a spe-cific situation, you could also change your behavior.

  • Based on a cognitive model of emotional responses. It is one's thoughts that create their feelings and behaviors, not the external world around them.

  • CBT teaches individuals how to unlearn undesirable reactions and to relearn more productive and healthy reactions. In turn, this leads to long-term results, not just short-term comfort.

  • This is the basis of CBT, as perceived situations are what influence our emotional well-being. This means that it is not necessarily a situation that di- rectly affects how we feel emotionally, rather our thoughts and feelings towards that situation.

  • Basically, CBT is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on changing behaviors by modifying one’s beliefs and distorted thoughts.

Chapter One: What is CBT?

Throughout history, there have been many incredible advances within the discipline of psychology. The way we have come to understand the brain and behavior is truly remarkable and has paved the way for a wide range of therapies. Of course, it wasn’t always this way. What many refer to as ‘insane asylums,’ were the norm for many years.

Patients were exposed to horrendous conditions in order to control their undesirable behaviors. In some cases, holes were drilled into patients heads in order to release evil spirits. It wasn’t until the 20th century that psychological breakthroughs were being made. Symptoms of hysteria were eventually treated with hypnosis and various therapies began to take shape.

Freud’s psychoanalysis therapy, psychological research, and developing therapy methods gave way to behavioral and cognitive therapy. Originally developed to treat depression, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the few therapies which is scientifically proven to be effective, based on hundreds of clinical trials and practical applications. Basically, CBT is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on changing behaviors by modifying one’s beliefs and distorted thoughts.

This therapy focuses on the ways in which we perceive situations, directly affecting our feelings and behaviors. If you have a negative interpretation of an event or situation and it goes unchallenged, then you could potentially experience a continuous cycle of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are destructive in nature. For some, this affects them throughout the entirety of their lives. As an example, let’s focus on a similar scenario affecting two unique and unrelated individuals.
