Identifying and modifying negative/ counter-productive thoughts and behaviours.
CBT or Cognitive behavioural therapy is a social – psycho intervention, which is conducted for improving the state of your mental health. Initially, started to treat depression, CBT comprises several cognitive and behaviour therapies that treat obstructive attitudes, thoughts, beliefs, and behaviours. It is an action-oriented form of therapy that is used to decrease the symptoms of a diagnosed mental disorder and treat all the ongoing emotional anxiety issues. We examine your unusual thinking and the weird things you do and with the help of evidence-based techniques and strategies, we emphasize treating these cognitive thought distortions. Using a defined psychopathology approach, we primarily focus and put our entire efforts to make you strong enough to cope with all the tough phases of your life cycle. We assist the person to practice effective strategies that address the desired goals of a sound and healthy mind.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps people learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior and emotions.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy focuses on changing the automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to and worsen emotional difficulties, depression, and anxiety. These spontaneous negative thoughts have a detrimental influence on mood.
Through CBT, these thoughts are identified, challenged, and replaced with more objective, realistic thoughts.
Types of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:
1. Cognitive therapy centers on identifying and changing inaccurate or distorted thinking patterns, emotional responses, and behaviors.2
2. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) addresses thoughts and behaviors while incorporating strategies such as emotional regulation and mindfulness.
3. Multimodal therapy suggests that psychological issues must be treated by addressing seven different but interconnected modalities: behavior, affect, sensation, imagery, cognition, interpersonal factors, and drug/biological considerations.3
4. Rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) involves identifying irrational beliefs, actively challenging these beliefs, and finally learning to recognize and change these thought patterns.
