The Science Behind CBT
Understanding the science behind CBT can provide valuable insights into its effectiveness as a therapeutic approach.
Identifying Cognitive Distortions
CBT aims to identify and rectify cognitive distortions – irrational and negative thought patterns. These distortions often contribute to anxiety, depression, and addictive behaviors. Through CBT, individuals learn to recognize these harmful thoughts and replace them with healthier alternatives.
Building Coping Skills
CBT equips individuals with practical tools and coping strategies to manage emotional distress. These skills empower clients to take control of their lives, even in challenging situations, reducing the reliance on harmful behaviors.
CBT is not just about changing thoughts; it’s also about modifying behaviors. Clients learn to replace destructive behaviors with healthier alternatives, fostering lasting recovery.
