CBT helps individuals become more aware of their negative thoughts, which can trigger distressing emotions and behaviors. By identifying these thoughts, individuals can learn to challenge them and replace them with more positive and realistic ones.
CBT focuses on changing problematic behaviors that contribute to mental health issues such as avoidance, social withdrawal, or substance abuse. Through techniques like exposure therapy or behavioral experiments, individuals can gradually learn new, healthier ways of responding to triggers and situations.
CBT teaches individuals practical skills for managing stress, anxiety, depression, or other mental health concerns. These may include relaxation techniques, problem-solving skills, assertiveness training, or mindfulness practices.
Often, our beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world can be distorted and contribute to our mental health problems. In CBT for addiction, therapists work with clients to identify these beliefs and challenge them through evidence-based techniques.
CBT encourages individuals to become more aware of their thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations, and behaviors in the present moment without judgment. This greater self-awareness can help individuals understand the relationship between their thoughts and feelings and how they influence their behavior.
