What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy


What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a widely accepted and evidence-based practice used to treat mental health disorders, as well as substance abuse disorders. The idea behind this therapy approach is that our thoughts and behaviors influence each other.

We can change the way we think or behave in a situation, and we can change the way we feel about life. The therapy further examines behaviors that have been learned, habits, and negative thought patterns with the view of adjusting and turning them into a positive situation. Our mental health program in Boca Raton actively utilizes CBT for patients who are suffering from a mental health disorder, substance abuse problem, or a dual diagnosis. We share with you the many benefits of cognitive behavioral therapy and how this treatment approach has been proven successful.

Who Benefits Most from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

People who suffer from depression, anxiety, and PTSD can greatly benefit from CBT. This therapy approach can help individuals properly manage the symptoms of their mental health illness. CBT also helps people learn the skills needed to cope with stressful situations and how to positively change them. You will be able to communicate your emotions properly and strengthen healthy relationships during CBT therapy. You will also be able to change any self-destructive behaviors that may be enabling your addiction.

This type of therapy is particularly helpful for individuals with specific issues. This therapy approach is very practical, rather than insight-based, and looks at solving the current issue. Combined with other therapy methods and sometimes medication, CBT is an effective and vital component to the mental health program in Boca Raton, offered at Banyan Mental Health. You will be able to grow through recovery and learn how to overcome negative challenges that come your way after successfully completing CBT therapy.
