What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?
Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a form of talk therapy.
It is effective at treating many disorders such as:
- Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
The idea behind CBT is this: negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle.
When you feel bad it causes you to react or think in certain ways that may make you feel worse. CBT creates a new perspective for you to change your behavior and break the cycle.
