COGNITIVE BEHAVIOR THERAPY (CBT)
Cognitive Behavior Therapy is a common type of mental health counseling (psychotherapy). With cognitive behavioral therapy, you work with a mental health counselor (psychotherapist or therapist) in a structured way, attending a limited number of sessions. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way.
Cognitive behavioral therapy can be a very helpful tool to address emotional challenges. For example, it may help you:
Identify ways to manage emotions such as anger, anxiety.
Learn techniques for coping with stressful life situations.
Learn how to manage your time effectively.
Resolve conflicts and learn better ways to communicate.
