What is CBT?

Resolves problems with a step-by-step approach in a time-limited manner.

Examines and changes the way your thinking, behavior and emotions negatively impact your life.

Cognitive therapy strategies focus on identifying and changing thought patterns that are causing and maintaining problematic emotions and behaviors.

Acceptance and mindfulness-based strategies reduce suffering and facilitate making meaning and working toward valued goals.

Behavior therapy strategies, based on learning theory, include exposure (systematically and collaboratively approaching avoided emotions and situations), communication and assertiveness skills, problem solving, relaxation and mindfulness training, and behavioral activation (increasing activities to enhance mood and sense of control).

Individualized assessment provides an initial conceptualization and tracks progress throughout treatment.

Collaborative, focused sessions include developing goals and tracking progress.

Clients actively participate in treatment, working in and out of session with strategies to practice at home.

Research shows that CBT fosters enduring change.
