Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a form of therapy that assumes that faulty thinking patterns cause “negative” behavior and “negative” emotions. The treatment focuses on changing an individual’s thoughts (cognitive patterns) in order to change his or her behavior and emotional state. This therapy trains individuals to replace undesirable behaviors with healthier behavioral patterns.
