What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
One of the most common forms of psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a very structured form of talk therapy. Generally, a plan is developed for a set period of time or a limited number of sessions with a psychotherapist, therapist, or psychiatrist targeting a particular issue or problem. While CBT has been found to be very effective in treating mental issues such as eating disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and depression, its use is not limited to the treatment of mental illnesses. It is exceedingly effective in helping those who simply have trouble coping with the rigors of everyday life, a sudden loss, or trauma due to abuse.
The chief advantage that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy offers is that great progress can be made in a very short period of time. On the negative side, to achieve its therapeutic effect CBT often involves placing oneself in uncomfortable or distressing situations. An example of this is someone who suffers from a phobia being forced to confront their fear head-on. With an experienced therapist, there is, in truth, no danger.
