CBT allows the client to change the way he or she feels and behaves, even if the situation that caused those thoughts and behaviors does not. In other words, it puts the client in charge of his or her own feelings and behaviors. As a result, the client learns to relax and become more rational and optimistic in the face of challenging circumstances. CBT is an attractive option for many people because it is relatively brief. Many clients find relief from painful emotional difficulties through CBT more quickly than they would with other therapeutic approaches. Common benefits of CBT include the following:

  • Identifying negative thoughts and emotions
  • Preventing addiction relapse
  • Managing anger
  • Coping with grief and loss
  • Overcoming trauma
  • Resolving relationship difficulties

CBT is very goal focused, and it begins by identifying specific problem areas. The client and the therapist agree on clear, measureable goals that the client wishes to accomplish as a result of treatment. Therefore, CBT is best for people who have a specific problem or goal in mind. Examples might include controlling one’s anger at work, gaining the courage to ask for a promotion, or reducing anxiety in social situations. CBT is appropriate for clients who do not necessarily wish to gain insight into the root of their problems, but who prefer a practical, problem-focused treatment solution. CBT is effective with adults and can also be used to correct emotional and behavior problems in teenagers and children.

WHO BENEFITS FROM COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is based on the theory that it is not the negative events themselves that cause problems, but rather the way we think about those events. CBT works by changing patterns of thought and behavior that contribute to a person’s difficulties. For example, based on childhood experiences, a person may believe that he will never be accepted by his peers. As a result, he avoids social situations and behaves in an unfriendly manner to prevent rejection. When he fails to make friends, he takes this as confirmation that he will never be liked. CBT will help this person recognize and test these dysfunctional assumptions. Through therapy, he will learn positive behaviors to help him initiate friendships, recognize that he can be accepted by others, and change his negative feelings toward himself. The CBT strategies he learns in therapy will help him now and for the rest of his life.
