Lots of people hear the words cognitive behavioral therapy and they immediately think of serious mental defects. But this is just not true. Cognitive behavioral therapy is making its way into everyday counseling sessions and into group discussion. It is just a different form of treatment. It is not just for those with serious mental health issues.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) focuses on a particular way an individual thinks and behaves to deal successfully with their emotional, behavioral and social issues. It is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on the "here and now" rather than past events. CBT works by changing our behaviors and beliefs by learning new strategies to help cope with the issues and problems we currently face.
