Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is essentially a cross between behavioral therapy and psychotherapy. Behavioral therapy focuses on the connection between our problems, thoughts, and behavior. Psychotherapy places emphasis on the significance of the personal value we give to things and experiences, as well as how our childhood affects our thought patterns. In a nutshell, our clients can enjoy the best of both worlds.
CBT adopts a more hands-on take on problem-solving. With the main goal of altering thought and behavioral patterns usually associated with addiction, it aims to improve and uplift our clients’ general mood and outlook in life. Our qualified psychotherapists can help you take control of your attitude and behavioral issues for you to obtain recovery success and lasting freedom from drugs or alcohol. Rest assured that they can tailor an individualized treatment plan that is specifically customized according to your personality.
How Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Works
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can help change certain behaviors and attitudes specifically by concentrating on an individual’s cognitive processes (which include thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs) and defining the impact of these processes on his behavior. In this way, a safer and more effective means of dealing with mental and emotional difficulties can be established.
The Advantages of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Chiron Treatment uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for a plethora of reasons.
- Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, clients are taught and trained to be more independent and capable of tackling issues themselves and not to simply remain attached and dependent on a therapist. Our experienced specialists can introduce you or your loved one to a valuable set of principles that are truly indispensable in dire situations.
What to Expect During a CBT Session
Another outstanding quality of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that is absent from other forms of psychotherapy is its more organized structure essential during sessions. The purpose behind this organization and structure that is key to CBT is to maximize therapeutic time efficiency, to guarantee that no significant detail is omitted, as well as to be able to have a more natural and comprehensive flow from one session to another.
- In your next meeting, expect to review and discuss what you have concluded in the previous session. Our therapist can better gauge the progress you’re making through the homework you’ve done. Planning the assignment to be accomplished outside of sessions will be done at the end of each session.
