Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy combines psychotherapy and behavioral therapy. The basis of CBT is that thoughts can influence feelings, and that one’s emotional response to a situation comes from how they interpret it. When these thoughts are biased, illogical, or distorted, patients learn to distinguish thoughts and feelings, become aware of the ways their thoughts can influence feelings that may not be helpful, and develop skills to correct these biased thoughts.
