Introduction to CBT-Part-II

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

by Zubair Khan

Course overview

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on how a person's thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes affect their behavior and emotions. CBT is based on the idea that a person's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected and that changing one of these can affect the others.

CBT is a structured and short-term therapy that typically lasts between 8-20 sessions. During therapy, the therapist works collaboratively with the client to identify negative thought patterns and beliefs that are causing distress and to develop more positive and adaptive ways of thinking. The therapy also focuses on identifying problematic behaviors and finding ways to change them.

CBT is an evidence-based treatment and has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), eating disorders, and substance use disorders.

One of the key principles of CBT is the use of homework assignments, which involve practicing new skills and techniques between therapy sessions. This helps to reinforce what is learned in therapy and to promote lasting change.

CBT can be delivered in various formats, including individual therapy, group therapy, and self-help resources, such as books and online programs. CBT has also been adapted for use in different populations, such as children, adolescents, and older adults.

Overall, CBT is a highly effective and widely used approach to psychotherapy that can help individuals to better manage their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, leading to improved overall mental health and well-being.
