What Is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a kind of talking therapy that looks at how your thoughts, feelings, and actions are all connected. It says that what you think affects how you feel and act. So, if you change the way you think and act, it can make you feel better. With CBT, you and your therapist work together to find and change bad thinking habits and beliefs. You’ll learn ways to handle tough situations better and make positive changes in your life. CBT is practical and focused on goals, which makes it good for treating different mental health problems like anxiety, feeling sad, trauma, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and more.

How Effective is CBT?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is widely recognized as one of the most effective treatments for numerous mental health conditions. Studies and research trials have demonstrated its efficacy in improving symptoms and enhancing overall well-being. Here’s a closer look at the effectiveness of CBT, supported by statistics and studies:

  • In a recent study that looked at how well CBT works for anxiety-related disorders, researchers found that 48% of patients were free of symptoms after finishing treatment.

  • A study by The National Library of Medicine revealed that CBT is a successful approach to treating depression. Additionally, when combined with medication, it’s notably more effective than using medication alone.

  • In a study on treating cocaine dependence with psychosocial therapy, Rawson and colleagues found that 60% of patients who underwent CBT had clean toxicology screens at the 52-week follow-up.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Techniques

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques are practical tools that you can use to change the way you think, feel, and behave. Here are some standard CBT techniques:

In CBT, you learn to recognize negative or unhelpful thoughts. Keep a journal to write down these thoughts when they occur.
Once you identify negative thoughts, you work with your therapist to challenge them. You might ask yourself questions like, “Is there evidence to support this thought?” or “Are there alternative explanations?”
This involves testing out new behaviors to see how they affect your thoughts and feelings. For example, if you’re anxious about social situations, you might gradually expose yourself to them to see that your fears are unfounded.
CBT frequently incorporates relaxation techniques such as mindfulness meditation, deep breathing, or progressive muscle relaxation to assist you in handling stress and anxiety.
CBT teaches you practical problem-solving skills to address challenges in your life. You learn to break problems down into smaller steps and come up with effective solutions.
This involves planning enjoyable or meaningful activities to increase your sense of fulfillment and well-being. By scheduling activities, you can counteract feelings of depression or lethargy.
This technique involves replacing negative or irrational thoughts with more balanced and realistic ones. It helps you develop a healthier mindset and outlook on life.

These are just a few examples of the many techniques used in CBT. The techniques chosen will be based on what you need and want, as decided by you and your therapist together.
