What is CBT?
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychological intervention which aims to improve mental health. CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions (e.g. thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes) and behaviors, improving emotional regulation (awareness and control over one’s and others’ emotions) and the development of personal coping strategies that focus on solving current problems. Originally, it was designed to treat depression, but its uses have been expanded to include treatment of a number of mental health conditions, including anxiety, substance abuse, eating disorders, life-style diseases management, couples work, and many more. CBT is one of the few psychotherapies that use evidence-based techniques and strategies.
