CognitiveBehavioral Therapy

What is CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)?

CBT or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy stands out as one of the most researched and well-known types of psychological therapy. It is an umbrella term for many third wave therapies, such as ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), Mindfulness-Based CBT, and Compassion-Focused Therapies. Therefore, if you are receiving ACT therapy, for instance, you are essentially engaging in a form of CBT.  

According to the Australian Psychological Society (APS), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is characterised as a psychological treatment method that has shown effectiveness across a spectrum of issues, encompassing depression, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, marital conflicts, eating disorders, and severe mental illnesses. Extensive research studies indicate that CBT results in substantial enhancements in both functioning and quality of life. Moreover, CBT has been found to be comparable to, or even more effective than, alternative forms of psychological therapy or psychiatric medications in numerous investigations.  

CBT also often includes giving the client some information (psychoeducation) and tools, to manage the difficulties they are experiencing. Information can be a powerful tool for change.
