Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Program
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a psychotherapeutic modality that works to solve problems concerning dysfunctional emotions, behaviors and cognitions through a goal-oriented, systematic approach. CBT is a combination of Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Therapy, and is based on a combination of basic behavioral and cognitive research.
Evidence has shown that CBT is effective in the treatment of a variety of problems, especially substance abuse disorders.
Other disorders that are effectively treated by CBT include mood, anxiety, personality, eating, and psychotic disorders. Treatment involved specific brief, direct, and time-limited treatments for specific psychological disorders. CBT is used in individual therapy as well as group settings, and the techniques are often adapted for self-help applications.
CBT was primarily developed through a merging of behavior therapy with cognitive therapy.
While based in differing theories, the two modalities find common ground in focusing on the “here and now”, and on alleviating symptoms. CBT treatment programs have been thoroughly evaluated for efficacy and effectiveness. The health-care trend of evidence-based treatment, where specific treatments for symptom-based diagnoses are recommended, has favored CBT over other approaches.
